Orphaned references in Nintendo DS line
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Nintendo DS line's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.
Reference named "fourth":
- From Nintendo DS: Tor Thorsen (2009-10-29). "DSi XL hits US & EU Q1 2010, DS sales top 113 million". GameSpot. San Francisco: CBS Interactive. Retrieved 2009-10-29.
- From Nintendo DSi: Tor Thorsen (2009-10-29). "DSi XL hits US & EU Q1 2010, DS sales top 113 million". GameSpot. CBS Interactive. Archived from the original on 2010-07-24. Retrieved 2009-10-29.
I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 14:00, 24 December 2013 (UTC)
- Besides it being quite evident that it is the case (similar name, logo, design, compatibility, etc.), and that it follows the same "nomenclature" as in Game Boy line, sources also consider the Nintendo 3DS family to be part of the Nintendo DS line. Here's one example.--Arkhandar (Talk • Contribs) 20:56, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
- That's just original research and media confusion. I think we'll need confirmation from Nintendo. « Ryūkotsusei » 21:49, 4 January 2014 (UTC)
Not sure that this is where I should have posted this, as I've never posted on Wikipedia before.
The image for the Nintendo DS line timeline seems to have some overlapping text, rendering some parts of the image unreadable.
If it matters, I'm using Google Chrome version 37.0.2062.124 (Would it though? It's a .png) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:37, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
Contradiction with Game Boy article
This article claims the DS line to be the best-selling handheld to date with 154M units sold, but the Game Boy line article contradicts this saying that it sold 200.2M units over its lifespan.
The Game Boy line article includes the GBA series and calls the DS its successor. Meanwhile, the Game Boy Advance family article ALSO includes the three GBA consoles and calls the Game Boy line its predecessor and the DS line its successor.
The obvious solution, to my eye, would be to merge the Game Boy Advance family article into the Game Boy line article, since the latter article already includes essentially all of the information from the former. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 02:53, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
- Hmm. The DS line article doesn't include the 3DS line, and the GBA line differs significantly enough from the GB and GBC line that a separate article makes sense to me. Perhaps you should just remove the info on the GBA line from the GB line article, and link it to the GBA line article? Then we'd have a nice chain: GB line -> GBA line -> DS line -> 3DS line. —ajf (talk) 03:00, 17 April 2015 (UTC)
