The onyl problem with that, BloodNess, is it might hurt normal GC sales, and three handhelds out at once is just crazy (GBA, DS and a PGCN

BUT GC SALES ARE GOIN DOWN, AND WITH REVOLUTION COMING OUT MARCH OR LATER 2006. THEY COULD ANNOUNCE THE GCP IN HOLIDAYS-JANUARY 2006 JUST TO KEEP UP WITH SALES OF OTHER HANDHELDS/CONSOLES OF RIVAL COMPANIES.

Insted of making games for the GBE Nintendo well just port games from the Dreamcast the the GBE (...just like they did with every other handheld). If they do port Dreamcast games I want a new PowerStone game!
That doesn't nessisarily mean it can succesfully emulate Dreamcast games. Look at the DS- better graphics than the N64, but it can't emulate N64 games. The games would have to be re-wrote to work.

I don't think Nintendo is focusing on their console right now- The Gameboy Micro comes out in..September I think, and there's only 3-4 GCN games coming out from June-August. I'm sure there will be more sales just because of the new Zelda game.

BloodNess wrote:well, my biggest opinion in this thread may be this:


If we, the gamers, have the power and intelligence to make a 128 bit portable(Gamelver GCp, Bens and other pS2p...no xbox though) . The game consoles makers(bein microsoft, sony and nintendo) the ones know their hardware the most, can make something far more mind-blowing. Meaning that In maybe a few months entering 2006, The Big N could make the awesome announcement of a 128-bit-GC compatible-PSP killer-awesome-GCp. Just a thought...
yeah but the cube sucks ass. i'll just cram a battry in a revolution then start selling the snap on thing as third party jaz

What's your point? The Gameboy was repackaged to be the Gameboy Pocket. The original Playstation was replaced early on with the PSX, and then later the PSone. Then Sony released the PStwo. Why is Nintendo suddenly money whores? It's not a new idea.
and gameboy advanve with gba sp. why redesign an alredy redesigned system

*coughPLAYSTATIONcough*

Honestly, nobody gave Sony crap for redesigning the PS twice, but not Nintendo's suddenly milking the cash cow?

Redesigning twice? what the hell are you talking about? Playstation and psone, that sounds like 1 redesign to me. Unless you count the later playstations without the expansion port a redesign instead of a hardware revision

Hands off the caps-lock key, and off pointless flames. Nobody cares.
