The elf-sized Nintendo Micro is now set to launch September 19 for about $100. This also coincides with a $20 price drop in the DS in conjunction with the release NintenDogs—which is actually quite a cool little game involving lifelike dogs except that these electronic dogs rarely excrete feces, unlike our own dog, Phoebe, who often dumps on this crazy long pile wool rug my wife bought.
These announcements, coming one after the other, don't really seem to say much about the future of Nintendo. It seems that they're just trying to hit the back-to-school crowd, especially with NintenDogs and the DS. We'll see as new games and new consoles hit the streets what Nintendo really has up its sleeve.
