are we ever going to see "GameBoy" branding again?

In all probability, much like Origin, GameBoy will become the name of the next iteration of the eShop.

of course not

Game Boy is a product of Nintendo back when they were actually good

of course it was the first victim of Iwata's unholy crusade

Maybe if we ever see a single-screen handheld again. As long as it's dual-screen, it will just be some variant of DS, and never "Gameboy DS" either. If they were going that route that's what the first one would have been called.

The popularity of the DS killed the Gameboy family.

It was originally going to be a "third pillar", existing alongside the Gamecube and GBA.

But its popularity led to it becoming the DS's successor instead.


LOL at actually believing that bulspit.

That third pillar nonsense was a way out if the DS were to fail. Nintendo NEVER had intention to keep both systems. One was going to go one way or another.

LOL, you actually truly believed that! WOW.

I kinda wish they would but I can understand why they wouldn't.

That said, I still mini-rage when people call DS' "Gameboy".

Was watching a movie the other night and towards the end one persons kid meets another persons kid and one of the kids pulls out a DSLite and goes, "Wanna play Gameboy?"

Nearly flipped a table.

why would you get so mad?

What if you're coming from a self aware stand point like someone like me. I know it's a DS, I just want it to be a gameboy
