DS Gets Upskirt Capabilities – Camera & Player Added

Fans of the Nintendo DS will be excited to learn of the upcoming new model, set to include a camera and music player (able to record music from CDs and the like), and improved memory card and wireless networking capabilities. A larger screen is also promised.

It is to go sale before the year is out, at a price of ¥16,800.

This marks the most significant revision in the four years since the hugely popular handheld was released, and looks to be an interesting move by Nintendo, expanding as it does the platform’s capabilities into areas typically the preserve of dedicated devices and mobile phones.

It remains to be seen whether they will attempt to push the DS into new markets, but this would seem a logical next step (for example, an iTunes like service).

The most probable game related use of the camera functionality looks to be including photographs in games as avatars and the like, though how appealing this will be remains to be seen.
