Ug, Lately I've been getting way off subject and not thinking seriously enough in what I put in my posts [which I'd much rather do more than babbel on pointlessly] Anyway, I've always had this theory since Gameboy color came out; Orginally, Gameboy was simply black and white, and had compariable graphics compared to a regular NES chopped in half. Now, The graphics, gameplay, sound ect. on the Game Boy Color are coming closer and closer to SNES quality. I'll agree with that statement that gameboy has "evolved" and come quite a long way from which it one started. ^_^ And with that in mind, what if [which I think/hope it will] Gameboy kept "evolving" and enhancing so that eventually the graphics were of N64 quality? Could this happen? Maybe...But I think its quite...probable. ;} I keep picturing a regular N64 controller [with out the cord mind you] Only the Games would be inserted where normally the rumble pak or Mermory Card would go. The Rummble pak would attach to the games themselves, much like Gameshark. And the batteries [Hoy, think of how much battery power would be needed for this kind of situation! ;} ] would go in neat, secure little compartments just underneath where one would hold the controller. [If you flip over your N64 controller and look where the "Z" button is, you'll get a fairly good idea of what I mean,] And as far as the screen would go for showing the games, I think just above the joystick, we could widen the entire controller a wee bit more to make room for that, ne?

That would be awesome! Except, the screen would be teeny-tiny, but at least it would be portable.

Let me see here.  Gameboy advance I think might be either 16 bit or 32 bit.  If it was 32 bit then it would be half of the N64s bits.  The design would be weird and well its possible.  I bet that this idea would first be used bt pirate companies in Aisa.  They always seem to make stuff like that first and then Nintendo gets smart and uses illegal piraters ideas.  Howabout well I'm not even gonna get into it.

^_^ Oh yea, that's right, I compleatally forgot about Game Boy Advance [For shame on me -.-;] Seems like my "theory" might actually becoming a reality... :} Except I think that screen wouldn't be *that* tiny ;D

I don't like color Game Boy that much because some of the games for it won't work on Super Game Boy.

I think Game Boy Advance will be 32-bit.  The screen size will be larger than GameBoy.

Hmm... a 64 bit handheld console?  Technology would have to advance 2 or 3 years before we could see a handheld version of the 64.  The mere fact that it has 3D capabilities would require several extra chips, let alone the size carts would have to be to take advantage of the hardware.  As for using discs instead of carts?  Minidiscs, maybe.

Don't get me wrong- it could be done.  I wouldn't go so far as to call it handheld.  Portable at best, but not handheld.

Anyone seen the PS-One? (I think that's what it's called)  Sony kind of used this idea to update the Playstation...

A new Game Boy marketed in 2001 would probably be 32 bits, still 3-D capable but not as sophisticated as the Nintendo 64.
