For anyone unfamiliar with the concept, the Game Boy Player was released as an add-on for the Nintendo GameCube that allowed you to play -Game Boy/Color/Advance- games on your television.


Keep in mind that this hardware would only be compatible with the Wii U

I wouldn't know why. Sure, if you have a WiiU, you can play them just fine, but that kinda sucks nonetheless since you'd be forced to switch between screens all the time.

No. I have a 3DS XL and I don't own a 3D TV. The only situation that might make this cool is if Nintendo releases such a device when 3D HDTVs have saturated the market to a good degree. That won't happen until next gen at the earliest assuming it really ever becomes "a thing" to even own a 3D TV. Maybe if enough smaller devices like smartphones and tablets start using 3D screens there will be a bigger demand for it with televisions.

They could release it anyway and hope people are satisfied using it without being able to see the games in 3D, but again, it wouldn't interest me and the resolution difference would make the games look pretty bad.

For recording footage without having to pay a ridiculous amount of money to mod your 3DS, maybe. To actually just play 3DS games on the TV? Hell no.

Stretching 240p up to 1080p won't be fun. And I have no interest in the WiiU anyway. :S

Maybe. Depends on how expensive it is, I guess.
