Nintendo patent hints at force feedback for next DS

DS patent

Nintendo could be planning force feedback for the next DS, according to a patent from the company.

The update, made on January 28, shows rumble in an interaction between the stylus and the touch-screen.

If it does end up being in the next DS, it will be apparently joining motion controls: something rumoured to be in the handheld by a senior development source last week.

That's despite claims to the contrary from Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, who said comments he made on motion controls for the next Nintendo handheld recently were taken out of context.

Thanks, Joystiq.
