Imagine giving yourself a Vita or even a 3DS back when Gameboy was released?

Well for one thing, people would think that the Vita/3DS would probably look better than some of the best TVs back then, let alone any TV really.

This is all an illusion. But there is truth within illusions. And when the illusion fades. The truth will still resonate within you.

...Diamonds do nothing but look pretty. A video game suit of armor looks pretty and protects you from video game orcs.

I think people would pretty much act the way people would act today if someone came from the future and showed them unbelievable technology: Arrogant and calm, as if they were completely capable and knowledgeable about such things and these advancements were no big deal.

:p

Vita is more powerful than the words best super computers in the 80's. It would be confiscated by the government and tested on.

But yeah, to answer the question I would absolutely flip my ****. I remember seeing Virtua Fighter in the 90's and not believing what I'm seeing. I dreamt about it for weeks. Had I seen Golden Abyss I probably would have had an aneurysm.

Erm, from the responses here it's pretty clear most people who responded weren't actually around when the Gameboy was in its prime. So you know, they did have handheld cameras back then, you didn't need it on your shoulder. It wasn't the dark ages, it was slightly before the CD was first introduced.

I think people would be more like "Oh wow, that's AWESOME!" and really excited, especially at the price of both consoles you mentioned. Honestly (and this isn't a fanboy statement here), I think the thing they'd be most blown away by would be the glasses-free 3D for the 3DS. Even when it was released people were skeptical and unsure how it would look. Granted people in-the-know with this technology were fine, but most people had no clue and were blown away. I think someone back in the 80's would have a rather similar reaction.

For the Vita I think what would blow people away most would be the touch screen, and the battery. Remember back then four large AAs were the norm, a tiny thing that never needs to be replaced (well, at least not too regularly) would really blow them away, though I think for both systems the rechargable battery would be met with mixed reactions as gamers would want to be able to swap out batteries on the fly for nearly uninterrupted gameplay when traveling. Of course I'm talking about the average gamer, and not someone in-the-know again, as rechargable batteries if memory serves was around back then, but wasn't really readily available to the mass market.
