    Is this the third pillar thing that they've been talking about for a while now?

    If it is it was supposed to be unveiled at E3.

    I believe so, but if it plays GC to their full potential it might actually be worth buying. The price tag isn't too unreasonable.

    And now, considering the remake of MGS (Seen the video yet peeps? It's outstanding!), the GC may actually appeal to a slightly larger audience e.g. me. :)

    Miyamoto and Kojima together. Oh suit you. There's no way it can be anything but great.

    Close with the timing, just off with the details it seems....
    I think it sounds great, RPG and strategy games would be great on this.

    Sounds pretty much exactly like what Nintendo have been doing with the GBA linkup on the Cube.

    Great, all you then need is independent use of each eye as per fighter pilots in lynx helipcopters! They train for years to achieve that! :)

    Shame Nintendos gimmicks never attract mainstream gamers, they have done a bunch of crazy stuff (read genius) but noone really uses any of them. So they dont sell. This smells of gimmick again, how many of you actually bothered with GBA and Wind Waker link up? I wanted to be arsed but i couldnt.

    Rubbish, in a film they strapped some underpants to aguys head and put a periscope on one eye while blocking the other one out. He learned in an afternoon ;)

    Wasnt it a little yellow twat who popped up on the GBA when you sailed across something worth getting in the ocean? I forget the little guys name. Not too similar when Ocarina of time had the rumble feature (if you spent £14.99 on the Rumble Pack exclusively by nintendo) if you ran anywhere near something hidden.

    I agree 100%. I expect not only a Virtual Boy style failure, but also every 3rd party game having a map/status screen on the second display and nothing else.

    The reason i couldnt be arsed is made evn worse when i do have 2 GBA's (still need an SP), Link cable (MArio Kart at work :p) and a GC and zelda. That may just be lazy tho.

    Nail. Hit. Head.


    All the way through reading the report I was thinking "Sounds like another Virtual Boy".

    I think I'll reserve judgement til I've 1) seen it and 2) seen how the second screen (which will be vertically aligned) works in practise. It's daft to write it off when noone knows anything of value yet.

    Oh ill buy it ok! Just maybe wont use it very much if at all :)

    Tingle popped up on your GBA, and it allowed you to find artifacts in the game. It also allowed you to fill up your health and weapons at any time in the game as Tingle was a mobile merchant, dependant on whether you had enough Rupees to pay for them of course.
