    The screen will only cover the nubs and the keyboard, not the physical Dpad and the physical action buttons.  You still have physical controls. DS doesn't use analog sticks.

    I'm not sure what you're talking about. Natsu's suggestion was to put a screen between the nubs, not to replace the nubs and keyboard w/ a screen.

    EDIT: Just saw what you were talking about. However, my point still stands. Yoyobuae was responding to Natsu's suggestion, which did not involve covering the nubs and keyboard.

    Guys, it wasn't a real suggestion anyway...

    Last response for the sake of it. I think. lol

     

    So there's no way to have a screen at a lower resolution. (At the absence of quality?)
     

    Yeah, I'm not saying get rid of the keys and nubs.
     

    At least you wouldn't need to carry both, if you want a top and bottom screen.
     

    If this is the real deal and it fits, then that's pretty close. Give you full screen for the top.

     

    There's already "100" buttons. Another touchscreen in place isn't going to hurt. :lol:

     

    DS, more icons/buttons, touchpad and multitasking programs.
    (Search the web and watch a video at the same time.)

    Two totally different things were being discussed here, and it looks like you're not the only one who confused them.

    1) Natsu wanted a second screen as part of the Pyra, in between the nubs

    2) Shenmue wanted an optional add-on screen that you place on top of the nubs and part of the keyboard

    They were both distinct requests. I don't think Shenmue's is totally out of the question, but I also don't think it's something ED should make. The only question is if there's any reasonable way for a third-party add-on to connect a second screen to the Pyra. But this isn't really a discussion that should involve case design.

    That seems like a hassle. You would have to carry the screen separately. How would it stay inplace? In this case, you might as well get a DS. :p

    The snap-on connector with some additional locking mechanisms can hold it in place.  And please stop telling people to get a real DS to play DS game.  Look how DraStic does so well on Playstore because people like emulation.

    Problem solved! :D

    The topmost screen can either fold down and then both screens fold onto the keyboard base into a clamshell. Or it can fold backwards to sit on the outside to be used as a phone/tablet. The speakers issue is automatically fixed also, since the smaller middle screen easily fits them.

    It's brilliant I tell you. B)

    If anyone's actually serious about doing a second screen add-on it should be done for Pandora first. And someone should start a new thread for it instead of talking about it here. And no, don't expect ED to get involved.

    I've tried but failed miserably.  Maybe I'll give it another try when I feel like it again :)

    I'm talking about starting a thread for a DIY mod for adding a second screen on top of Pandora/Pyra, maybe that'd be less likely to be flamed than your ideas for handhelds with two native screens :p

    Where is the HDMI out port? If not, how would I connect this to my TV?

    Hi Fueler, it's on the far left of the back of the unit.
