And now the Nintendo Revolution

GameBoy Micro

Not to be left out of the party, Nintendo revealed its future gaming platform, the Nintendo Revolution (although the name may still change). Little was revealed but it looks like once again, Nintendo will offer the least powerful platform. The new console promises to play DVDs, offer WiFi, 512 MB of flash memory and come with an SD memory card slot. Specifications were not revealed beyond the confirmation that the processor would be built by IBM and the graphics chip would be provided by ATI.

Like the others, an online gaming service will be offered. It will also be backward-compatible with GameCube games.

Potentially more interesting and coming this fall is the Game Boy Micro. It will play the same games as the Game Boy Advance SP but measures only 4 inches wide by 2 inches tall. It will come with a 2-inch screen.
