Rumortoid: Will E3 bring news of a redesigned Nintendo DS?

According to Hirokazu Hamamura, head honcho at Famitsu, Nintendo is going to reveal a redesign for the DS at this year’s E3 (Los Angeles Convention Center, July 15-17).

This comment, when paired with the fact that Reggie Fils-Aime has promised some megaton announcements at the annual trade show, could hold some validity. Nintendo is known for tweaking its handhelds every few years, so a DS redesign is most definitely not out of the question. Not surprisingly, Nintendo refuses to comment.

The question is: What would they change? Larger screens? Different shape? Two touch points on the bottom screen (that’s my vote!)? I am perfectly happy with the model I have right now, but would be open for change.

How about you guys? Would you be excited about seeing a sleek new DS design come down the pipeline? What would like to see changed, if anything?
