Big chubby news recently came out of Nintendo: Their next DS version is
imminent, and it is a much larger beast than we are used to. The DSi LL
(DSi XL for the western market), is a whopper compared to its older
sibling. Its screen is fully 93% larger than the original DSi. Take
that poor eye sight. This week, Scott and I tackle this behemoth and
discuss the current state of handhelds, what we've been playing on our
itty-bitty screens, fat fingers, developing for limitations, and the
elderly market. You can find more information, including nice
photographs, in our show notes, and we encourage you to leave thoughts
of any size in the comments section.Some discussion starters:- Aside from portability, what has attracted you most to handheld games?- What limitations of the current handheld market are potentially empowering?- What games have you been playing on a small scale, and what best use the smaller hardware?To listen to the podcast:- Subscribe to the EXP Podcast via iTunes here.
