Earlier today Japanese publication The Nikkei stated that Nintendo were preparing to show off a larger revamped version of the Nintendo 3DS at tomorrows E3 event. Nintendo has just now issued a press statement saying that these rumours aren’t true, and are entirely speculation. Of course they would say this, we shall see for certain tomorrow.
I believe them
‘Of course they would say this,’
Yeah. Because it’s just illogical to do so.
I believe The Nikkei got a huge E3 scoop last year just before Nintendo’s conference.
But if it were true than they would just say “we don’t comments on rumors and speculation” they flat out denied it.
Evilmonkey got it spot-on, I’m relieved too.
See, they ARE smart
That’s a relief
And I doubt it’s true and they’re lying. This close to E3 if it was true they’d just keep quiet until announcing it as planned, not deny it…
Thats what I was thinking. Their conference is tomorrow. Why lie when its so close?
June 5th….. i must of missed my bed time…..
Yes! Humanity and physics prevail!
Why is everyone so against the possibility of a revamped 3DS? It’s going to happen eventually. It’s not like Nintendo signed an oath to never update the hardware. Wouldn’t you rather have a redesigned system instead of having all these tacky add-ons (circle pad, battery pack…)?
what most are saying quote”its too early”, “nintendo still in a loss why”, “even though sony s ps3 was at a loss too, i dont want remodel because im too cheap.”
I doubt they will announce it. But am expecting any suprise from nintendo. But they hardly deny rumours
This is good, too early for a new 3DS model. Next year, maybe. This year, big no-no.
Even though I desperately what a 3DS with a bigger screen and a right analogue (then having the same control layout as the GamePad & Pro) I do have to agree that it IS a bit early yet to release a remodel. Doing so this earlier could send the wrong message – that Nintendo not only made a miss-step with the price and launch lineup, but that they completely rushed the design, which I don’t rekon at all. At the time, the design made sense to them.
Besides, given how insane the sales have been then why make a change now. It would be smart to have a new design ready in works for release as soon as the sales start to fall. Like that would happen though considering the games on the horizon.
Time will tell.
I agree, the design on the 3DS is flawed. A in-built Circle Pad Pro is really needed (and for those who think that won’t make it a 3DS anymore, look at the PS1 controller in 1994 and 1997), it does need a bigger screen comparable to the DSi XL, and for me the D-pad is in a pretty awkward place. It is a good console design-wise, but needs improvement.

think about it- two rumors were announced in the same report (wii u will be 30,000 yen and redesigned 3ds), yet only one of them was denied. Hmmm…..
True, but you might be reading too much into it, the redesign is the more controversial of the rumours.
I guess it would be silly having to save of for two new consoles. Although a 3DS with a bigger screen, better battery life and a built in second analog nub would be nice to have…
Although it would be nice I think it would be smarter to keep for next year
The current model is fine as it is. It is too early for a real upgrade now.
Sickr, who is alba?
why the fuck does it take time for comments to show up and sometimes it doesn’t even show that fucking retarded fix it
next year seems right not this year.
