Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime reckons the Game Boy Advance has "at least one more holiday season left in it" before they pack it off to eternal playground in the sky, where the sun's always shining from every direction so Castlevania's playable.
"We think that Game Boy Advance certainly has at least one more holiday season left in it," was what he said, in case you wanted every word. He was speaking at the Reuters Media Summit in New York, as part of his tour to promote the recently launched Nintendo Wii.
But why Reggie? Why give it another year? Because it's a "gateway console" apparently. "For us, it continues to be a great stepping stone for five, six, seven year old consumers to have their first great handheld gaming experience and then transition right into DS," he explained.
The DS? With two screens? It'll never work.
