As you may be aware, two Nintendo patents filed recently have illuminated the Internet rumour mill, with the Kyoto games giant filing V-Pocket and PCGP.
SPOnG learned from official Nintendo sources yesterday that the V-Pocket trademark concerns Nintendo’s licensing of the Palm OS based PDA software.
Nintendo will soon unveil a complete suit of personal organiser tools for its Nintendo DS platform, expected to be shown before E3. Nintendo believes that the functionality of the DS, combined with high-end PDA software, will give it an edge over Sony’s PSP, which is, and will remain a media-driven value-added console.
It’s worth noting that the logo offered for V-Pocket reflects the aesthetic employed in Nintendo’s DS branding.
The second is the rather interesting PCGP, rumoured by many to be some sort of wireless augmentation for the DS. However, SPOnG has learned that it is a joint-filing with the Pokemon-famed Game Freak Company.
So we could be looking at Pokemon Coliseum Grand Prix, or Pokemon Goa…Something Something. You get the idea.
We are expecting a full update on this direct from Japan soon, so stay tuned.
