According to analyst Michael Pachter with EDGE, Nintendo may have to release an updated version of it’s DS handheld gaming console later this year to combat sliding sales in Japan and the increase in popularity of Sony’s PSP.

In an investor note Pachter says that they “believe that lower than expected DS hardware sales could trigger an earlier launch for the new device.”

“DS sales are solid worldwide, but are weak in Japan, leading us to expect an introduction of a new device in Japan before the end of the calendar year.”
