PSP at the top of handheld evolution

We know that the PSP is powerful. But how powerful is it compared to handhelds before it? A lot more, as seen by Pocket Gamer's recent analysis of handheld systems. PSP's 333MHz of processing power knocks makes the rest of the chart seem miniscule in comparison. Pocket Gamer's feature is certainly...

Today in Joystiq: April 12, 2007

If you can't read the caption under the Game Boy Advance, it says, "The second best thing to do in the dark." Obviously they don't play flashlight tag. (Unless that is the first best thing to do, then, well ... there's some different priorities there.) Check out the highlights for today:...

Today in Joystiq: April 6, 2007

This damaged Game Boy has been caught on Flickr a few dozen times already (credit goes to Plaid Ninja for the one above).

SXSW: Game Perverts

At first glance that panel title sounds like a very special episode of Dateline NBC's "To Catch a Predator," but the subtitle makes it a bit clearer ... for some: "A Robot, a DS, and a dot-matrix printer menage a trois."

Joystiq sister site Engadget recently unearthed a great Nintendo patent filed way back in 2001 for an "Electronic apparatus having game and telephone functions" -- that's right, plans for a gaming cell phone from Nintendo. Mock-up pictures of the device show a small, Game Boy-style D-pad and buttons...

Square Enix surprise: its a PSP port of a GBA port of NES games

It looks like EGM's Rumor Mill is starting to develop into truth. "Square Enix is whipping up a wild lineup for PSP this year ... These guys are serious too! I'm talking new games, remakes of old classics, and an all-new, unexpected Final Fantasy spinoff that will make the fanboys flip." Well, we...

Play GBA games (badly) on the Wii

While Nintendo is quick to tout the Wii's extensive backward-compatibility with all GameCube software, the sleek white system is a pretty bad fit for the Cube's Game Boy Player hardware add-on. Rather than leaving that clunky old Cube out in the entertainment center, Wii News recommends the Datel...
