Next DS won't have motion sensor after all

Comments "misinterpreted", says Nintendo.

Nintendo has denied that the next iteration of the DS will feature a motion sensor and more graphical power.

Company president Satoru Iwata was reported as making the claims last week. But according to Nintendo there's been a misunderstanding.

"Mr Iwata did not make any comments regarding the functions of Nintendo's future hardware systems," a representative told Kotaku. "The answer to the reporter's question was misinterpreted."

Kotaku stands by its original translation of the comments, which appeared in the Asahi Shimbun newspaper. Nintendo says it was the paper's reporter who was responsible for the mix-up.
