The Nintendo DS seems like a really innovative idea--two game screens on one system. This may bring some unique twists for types of games that are made for the system.

I think it's a bit weird that Nintendo is releasing a second portable system along side the Game Boy products. I don't think Nintendo needs two portable systems...they are already doing fine with the Game Boy Advance.

Nintendo stated that the DS will be the "3rd pillar" in their system lineup (Game Boy and their home consoles being the first 2 pillars). Nintendo also stated that the DS may decide the fate of their company--meaning that Nintendo's success may depend on if the DS succeeds.

People who like video games should also like Nintendo. People who don't like Nintendo obviously don't like video games.

So by Nintendo stating that their future success depends upon the popularity of the DS, does that mean if the DS fails then Nintendo fails?

Nintendo is being too pessemistic lately.

More like MARIO MANIAC is being too pessimistic lately.

The Andorian Mining Consortium runs from no one.
That was a joke.

What did Nintendo mean when they said the Nintendo DS "will decide the fate of the company"?

Does that mean if the DS fails, then Nintendo fails? Noooooooooo!!!!!!!! It can't be; don't put all your last efforts on the DS, please noooooooo!!!!

Where did you hear that the DS will decide the fate of Nintendo?

I read that in an official press release from Nintendo.
