So the Game Boy Advance is pretty much dead now, and the Nintendo DS is on top.
Nintendo promises that the DS is not replacing the Game Boy, but I have my doubts.

When will the next Game Boy be released!?

Soon I hope.

When the DS stops making money. Which is to say, never.

I can't see Nintendo releasing another Game Boy - the DS is a great platform for GBA games (I still play many GBA games on mine), and with the GameBoy Micro failing to take off, they're unlikely to try anything different.

I didn't know this! I don't really care that much about Portable gaming consoles anymore, I used to love them when I was young though.

I think the gameboy is pretty much dead, has been for a long time now

I think the game boy in its classic style is completely dead, yeah. Nintendo are too focused on innovation and new mechanics to go back to a standard gaming device I reckon.

The name, however, still catches people's eye, so I have no doubt the name GameBoy will be used, just not in its classic/colour/advance form.

they'll do a GB:DS. Mixing touch screen with monochromatic graphics.

I think a Nintendo DS 2 is more likely...

  What about the Game Boy Evolution they had planned?

what? of course it is dead!

I think the only reason why they said it wasn't dead, was because they didn't expect the DS to sell. So yeah, it's dead as hell.

I really hope they release a PSP type platform after the Nintendo DS has been out for 3 or 4 more years.

I'm expecting a DS lite 2.0
they can keep it going for awhile

#20 Posted by tec3297 (1170 posts) -

Well considering the Game Boy thing lasted for like 17 years, the DS era will be a long long road.

#21 Posted by grimmspectre18 (70 posts) -

Say it with me now, GameBoy DS. They would have the mindshare/ brand recognition of both platforms. "GameBoy" would remind older gamers of the great times they had with "Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins" and "DS" would capture the younger more casual gamers memories of the bus ride with their "LiL' PUPPY PWNY PEN PALZ"...maybe I shouldn't post this so Ubisoft doesn't make this gem before I can. (Insert TM here.)

Wow.

I have seen people playing gameboy in public within the last year. Two years ago I saw a guy in a bar playing a Sega GameGear. Old handhelds never die.

Everything old is new again and the Gameboy is no exception to that.
