Yeah, back from awesome vacations...
So the funny article I read today:
Microsoft Developing Wiimote-Style Controller ?
Well... the intention would not surprise me, but Sony knows well that just trying to copy an idea is not really helping selling more (sixaxis controller that nobody will ever use for example) and is not helping to "still" the market you might think you're now aim because you have the same capabilities...

Anyway, this E3 will be interesting... I can see Microsoft (for casual) and Nintendo (cheaper third generation Ds design) announcing something hardware-wise.

The fact the 360 is cheaper will be interesting to studio for making more casual games, but since the Console UI is a nightmare It remain difficult to make easy games for the 360.
For the DS, I hope you're wrong because this will mess up all the market again, and it's already a long shot to sell a DS game, so it will be more harder...

For the DS, when you take a look to what a new design of the same models is pushing the sells (DS and PSP light), and how DS is kinda start to slow down in Japan, I think that it's mainly probable that a third DS design will be there this year (cheaper, thinner (no ore Gameboy port) and with more battery life, something like that?)

For what I have heard from publishers, the DS is saturating the market in a way never seen before. So Imagine a Cheaper Console with better design (a ds air ?). Thiw may flood the market for good and burried the poor PSP :D
