Wedbush Morgan's Michael Pachter has predicted that slowing sales of DS in Japan could see a hardware revision from Nintendo before the end of the year.

"We think that the timing of a new product introduction will depend upon the sales profile for the DS, and believe that lower than expected DS hardware sales could trigger an earlier launch for the new device.

"DS sales are solid worldwide, but are weak in Japan, leading us to expect an introduction of a new device in Japan before the end of the calendar year."

Thanks, MCV.
