Nintendo DS MP3 Player

The cartridge-based format of the Nintendo DS is very conducive to functions beyond gaming. The handheld console is already capable of Web browsing in some regions; according to Gamer Scan, Nintendo will also add music playback through an add-on. Simply called the Nintendo MP3 Player in a catalog from the Leipzig Games Convention, the adapter will plug into the GameBoy Advance slot on a DS (or an actual GameBoy Advance) and play music from user-provided SD cards. Track information and user-chosen interface skins will appear on the main system display. Nintendo also lists a secondary headphone jack. Little else is known: a European launch on October 8th for 30 Euros has been reported but not yet confirmed.
