New port likely “too tight” for any DS slot

The “new” port under speculation located at the front of the underside of the Wii is likely too big to be a DS port.

I was never a supporter of the DS port theory anyway, I’m currently backing the DVD dongle idea. But I decided to take the 1:1 scaled patent drawings that I’ve been using to make models, and see how a DS game card compares to the port/slot/whatever. Note, these pictures clearly show the port is screwed in, making it likely that this port isn’t supposed to be opened frequently. In these pics, the bold line in the drawing is likely the part that opens:

It’s about as wide as a DS cart, which makes it highly unlikely that the port holds DS cards. I’ve never seen a company try and make something that tight.

Hopefully this debunks the DS card theory.

maybe it’s just space for a sticker? 😉
