I kinda miss the "gameboy" tradition.

I know gameboy3d would be bad but I guess it's time to pay respect and revive gameboy after DS's 6 years of reign.

When I tell somebody to hand me my DS, I still call a Gameboy.

Yeah. Kinda scary to think that the last major gameboy revision was nearly 7 years ago.

Wasn't it actually 5.5 years ago with Gameboy Micro?

why does it matter the name of the console, the DS is just a gameboy with 2 screens

That's basically what they consider it. It's the "evolution" of the Game Boy, so to speak.

I remember a kid in Gamestop calling it a "DualBoy" once.

But the Sony trolls will troll by saying "Well the GameBoy 3 sells because it is a new game boy" despite the PSP carries the Playstation brandname.

They could't use the excuse for the DS selling like hot stuffs because DS doesn't carry the Game Boy brand name.

I just call mine a Gameboy because none of my friends know the difference, and it sounds way more lame trying to explain it.
