According to Asahi, Iwata confirmed the DS is being developed in-house and will include both a high-definition video display as well as a motion sensor. Yep, a motion sensor. While accelerometer tech hasn’t worked out so well for Sony’s PS3 (the SIXAXIS gamepad, that is) it’s pretty popular with Apple’s iPhone, and I’m talking everything from games like Super Monkey Ball to “tilt” scrolling to carpentry tools.
Available when? Iwata understandably wouldn’t comment, instead noting that the DS is experiencing record sales in the US.
