Nintendo, which makes the DS portable videogame device and Wii console, said it hoped to start by unveiling new features for the DS next year that would be more practical than entertaining, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The company is gambling that many people who play video games do not want the complex features that the Microsoft (MSFT) Xbox 360 and Sony (SNE) PS3 have. Nintendo is more interesting in making its platform easier to use for the novice.
Based on sales figures of the consoles from the three companies, that is already working.
