The Japanese newspaper, Kabushiki Shimbun, ran an article that reveals that the new memory media which will be used in Nintendo DS software will cost 30 to 70 percent less than the current Game Boy Advance cartridges.

The newspaper also notes that Nintendo is currently losing 20 billion ($180.8m) each year on Nintendo hardware, but that this loss will be reduced by reusing the production plants for next generation hardware.

The newspaper speculated that if Nintendo can reach an operating profit of 150 billion ($1.4m) for the current year, the stock price could well rise to 20,000 ($181). It is currently around the 12,500 mark ($113).
