Shawn Sullivan gives us his thoughts about the new Game Boy, how it might connect to the Dolphin and what we can expect.
With all this news about a new 32 bit Game Boy in the making, I've decided to write an article about how I think the next version of the Game Boy should be and how it will hook up to the Dolphin. I'll also talk about some future games that should come out for it and really take us to the next level with portable gaming.
Many people would say that the GBC is too new and that the next portable system wont release for a long while. Personally, I feel that it will release about a year after the Dolphin. The Dolphin and this next generation Game Boy (NGGB we'll call it for short), will work together a lot more than the current GB and the Nintendo 64 does right now. I also think Nintendo can't really afford to wait too awful long. Although none of the portables right now really threaten the Game Boy's monopoly over the portable market right now, who knows what we'll see happening in the next year or so. I believe Nintendo should keep the price rather low. If it takes, say $70 to make, then Nintendo would try to release it for right around $70. I believe Nintendo wants to try to make the portable market a software driven market, and not a hardware market, as it has been. Meaning in short, Nintendo wants to start making more money of software instead of hardware. I believe the NGGB should also come with a four player link cable. Multiplayer will be huge this time around. Especially with games like Pokemon. I believe Nintendo should stay true to the regular line up of colors. Namely: Red, Black, Yellow, Green, Blue, and of course, Nintendo gray. An Ice Blue NGGB would be nice also.Read more...
