Just a gander at some of the latest rumors around the gameblogosphere.

  • Nintendo will release a redesigned DS. Of course they will. For two reasons. One, they always redesign their portable hardware. Two, I just got one for Christmas ... so expect a press release by the end of the month.

  • PlayStation 3 will be $500. I dunno, $500 is possible but it really feels like the upper edge. I'd guess $400, no two-tier release but plenty of bundlewear.

  • Mac users, please stay tuned. More than a few Mac fans felt that MacWorld didn't have the bang it usually does. Rumor mill has it that Intel supplies are little short, so expect press releases on a monthly basis as the year goes on.

  • Release dates. The PlayStation 3 or Revolution for Spring, Summer, or 2007? Stop kicking yourselves, people. Not even Nintendo or Sony probably has the answers just yet. Spring is looking increasingly unlikely though.

    One of my friends got a DS for Xmas as well. Since Nintendo of Japan seems to be running out of DS stock, perhaps the rumours may have some merit. I'll be first in line for one of those redesigned DSs if it's true. I'm hoping for nicer colours, too (come on white or black or powder-not-teal blue).
