    I'm curious.
    Does it allow you to play GBA games on your TV? (This would be great)
    Does it allow for extra in-game options, like GC-only quests?
    Can it perform similiarly to the VMU for the DC with sports games? (Another great feature)
    I can't seem to find hard info on how the two will interact.
    Can anyone help me out?
    Peace.

    No analog controls, screw it.
    The VMU is the idea that everyone should have stolen. The ability to have a user interface that is hidden from your opponents is great! But it's not worth giving up analog control to do it.

    After playing the GBA, I can't understand why anyone would want to use it as a console controller. It's uncomfortable as hell, has less buttons, no analog joystick, and you wouldn't be able to see the GBA screen!

    I didn't like the VMU much. The tiny black and white screen was hard to see stuff for making plays in football games (not my game, my brother's) and it weighed the controller down.
    I don't think every single GCN game will use the GBA, so it doesn't really matter that much.
    That thing so you can play GBA on your TV, well so far it requires you to open your GBA (thus voiding the warranty) and connect a thing to the motherboard at the right spot. I don't think it will be that popular.
