Nintendo DS Officially Announced

The new Nintendo DS portable gaming system features dual screens, a touch screen, voice recognition, wireless and chat abilities.

For 15 years Nintendo's Game Boy line has dominated the hand-held video game market. But today at the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3), the new Nintendo DS creates a whole new category by radically altering the way people will play games. Nintendo DS remains on track to launch in Japan and North America before the end of the year, and in Europe the system will launch during the first quarter of 2005.

With its two screens, Nintendo DS instantly shows its innovative face. But capabilities like a touch-screen input, voice recognition and wireless communication set it apart from every other game device, and again demonstrate Nintendo's passion for groundbreaking originality.

Game Boy Advance Video

As of June 23, the Game Boy Advance will get cartridges containing episodes of popular children's programs such as Pokémon and SpongeBob SquarePants.

Nintendo says the cartridges, which don't look much different from standard game cartridges, will hold about 45 minutes of video, just enough for two TV episodes (Nintendo says 90 minute cartridges are in the works). I've watched one, and the video quality isn't pristine DVD level, but it certainly is very good considering that you're watching it on a tiny little cartridge-based handheld. You can pause the video and even use the controls to skip chapters, just like a DVD.

Activision readying Tony Hawk's Underground 2 (PS2)
Reported By Mark Perry

One of the most successful titles in its catalog was Tony Hawk's Underground, the open-ended reinvention of the classic Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series. Since its release last October, the game has been a top seller on all platforms, and it remains one of the top 20 rented games in the US to this day.

So it should come as no surprise then, that Activison is planning a sequel to THUG. During its conference call--and on the press release preceding it--Activision listed its "key releases" for the coming year. In the middle of the list is "Tony Hawk's Underground 2," between Rome: Total War and Call of Duty: Finest Hour.
