World exclusive on the new DS prototype prototype!!!!!!!!!  

BlendSpotting's authentic and reliable inside source over at the Nintendo.com forums (a true fan and master of all things Nintendo) has come through for us here at BlendSpotting. We'll give you a few minutes to go and call your friends over to "check this out".

At first, you may notice the familiar and sleek clamshell is gone, and a see-through, more "warpy" design has emerged. The two screens are roughly the same size, and the unit seems to be more streamlined to them. No more "boring box handheld" for Nintendo! While speculations originally ran high over a more Revolution-like design, or something like an iPod, the opposite seems to be true. Straight out of 1999 comes the awesomely puntuated aesthetics that made the Nintedo 64 so eye-worthy (almost like a hot swimsuit model). The molded plastic curves and a low-set button layout almost look like those old Tiger handhelds, rememeber?

The three new buttons to the systems read "WEB", "MAIL", and "PRIME". We at BlendSpotting can't wait to see how these new buttons will affect and EFFECT gameplay in the future. Our hats are off to you, Nintendo. A detailed report is being written as we speak, but we knew you faithful BlendSpotting readers couldn't wait like the rest of the stupid would! We bet you feel as special as us right now, right!?

(ps: Hey, Nintendo, send us free units okay?)

what is that now? like...blue-green weirdness? they'd never use that =P

still, I LOVE the idea of having the power button over the start and select...you know how many times I've accidentally turned the power off? >.> I tell ya...there was a certain MOLE that was none too pleased with what was just an innocent accident >.>

At least now the power button is a different shape!!

Did you ever think of that? It's makes sense, too.

yes yes, it's a good idea, when it comes to the US though it'll be puke yellow, only Japan will get the cool colors.
