DS and Wii: so happy together

Iwata was kind enough to provide even more details on Wii-DS functionality, revealing that the DS will be able to do more things than just download demos from the console. Iwata stated that the DS would be able to act as a touchscreen controller for the console, which we assume would work when navigating the unit's menus outside of playing games, although one game is making it possible for the DS to control gameplay so far.

The recent announcement of Pokemon Battle Revolution promises that the player will be able to use the Wi-Fi capabilities of the DS to perform a number of actions. Being the first game to implement features with the DS, we're hopeful that many more developers will take advantage of this properly.

2. WOOOOWWWW!!!!!!Very "predictable" considering it's "U" Nintendo...First,u make the handheld of my dreams than u give it more than 1 screen.DS wasn't ever a predictable system.But...considering what they did with gc and gba I knew dis was comin.I figure sony will rip that off nintendo with PSP but PSP will b a bad controller considering those buttons and d-pad.Also that analog stick is crappy.That's all I have to say...Peace-out Nintendo Playas...

3. sony does have something like that already, nothing to amazing announced yet (cept using the ps3 as a hub to get music and videos from via wifi which is neat), but I dont think the psp will ever be a controller :P
I'm sure wii will have a lot of crazy ideas for the ds!
