IGN has the goods on official Nintendo DS features and pricing. The dual-screen handheld will launch in late November and retail for $150. The handheld boasts wireless capabilities that can be leveraged for not only multiplayer gaming, but also text and picture-based messaging. Interestingly, the DS will be launched in North America first, with releases to follow in Japan, Europe, and Australia.
In loosely-related console news, Sony has revealed a new spin of its PlayStation 2 that's smaller, thinner, and lighter than its predecessor. The new PS2, which is apparently called the SCPH-70000 (let's hope that's just an internal codename), comes with an integrated Ethernet port and is expected to retail for around $150.
