    Its very nice looking, but - if it's going to be playing current games, it needs some analogue sticks. That tilt pad, whilst clever looking, won't work in the same way.

    "GameBoy Advanced"

    Go look at one's "Advance," not "Advanced." If you're going to mention something, at least get the name right!

    Instead of just being capable of playing GameBoy games, put Android on it, and (besides regular Android functionality) a custom version of Classic Boy emulator, that automatically loads a given game in full screen mode, omits the on screen controls, and is able to load directly from game cartridges/discs, and I'd definitely buy it!!!!!

    I'd buy it and i don't buy devices like this (other than my original gameboy) It would be even better if it was compatible with old gameboy games as well as modern games. I think i'm a sucker for anything called Gameboy. they could change the name of the Wii u controller to Gameboy and i'd probably buy it

    IMHO the only thing that makes sense nowadays as a portable console would be something like PSP GO.

    That's the Wii U Gamepad with less buttons.

      I'm okay with that (even having more buttons is okay) as long as it doesn't come with the Wii u itself and is properly portable

    I like the conserve look better, the design is rather bulky.

    No i don't like the design with the buttons beside the screen, would prefer if it was like the original but slim. Also, to be kept simple, without additional buttons.
