    I remember Virtual Boy. How long did that last? A month? The memories of trying it out at Blockbuster during a hot summer afternoon and getting someone else's sweat on my forehead...ewww.

    Maybe it's N-gage2? Or some cellphone/game system hybrid. What other options are there for a game industry?

    It could be a new hybrid thing, like an add-on. Perhaps it's a Network Adapter/Online Game combo?

    An online gaming service seems pretty likely.

    I hope it's a new portable gaming device. The N-Gage is already more powerful than the GB Pocket, I can imagine how much better the PSP will be.

    I wonder if this or some version of it is the new hardware.

    I never bought a N64, but if they made some type of controller with the games built in (like the Atari 2600 ones), I would probably pick it up.

    ermm, I hope that's not it. Where's the screen? I guess it's appeal to Chinese gamers will be exclusive to them only.

    Thanks for the link btw.

    The iQue is a China-only gaming device that plays basically N64 games. Nintendo is trying to profit off that market without a huge investment, as well as put their foot in the door for the future.

    That's not what we're getting. I think they're going to unveil their online service (it fits in with their word games and would make sense as the next logical move).

    It doesn't say machine in the direct quotes, only "product." It will likely be an adapter/online setup kit with a game included.
