my guess is £40, half the price of the SP as it is now (i think they're about £80). it makes sense especially with the lack of a Z80 CPU and its diminutive size. just over the price of a game, or rather, the price of a PSP game why buy an overpriced watered-down console port when you can get the greatest (or rather most sold) handheld console ever? especially as the GBM and the PSP come out at around the same time in the UK....the belief is that it's going to be the hot Christmas item this year. Especially when we announce the pricing.
sonic died after Sonic Adventure. it just doesn't work in 3D -_- Sonic Advance on the other hands is alright, but its no Sonic 2 (Megadrive)GFLPraxis said:I'm frankly disturbed at the thought of a "Mario that appeals to teens".
Just don't follow Sega's approach and give your mascot machine guns.

also get those elusive suits in there, the Tanookis and Hammer Bros suits, or whatever equivalent.
now... the New Super Mario Bros DS looks awesome. sure it may not be mature but its the holy grail of gaming; a 2D Mario.

Hmm. Cheap, eh? Make it $50 and I'll buy one. Even though I have a perfectly functioning SP and not really that many games...I'd still one just for the extreme portability.GFLPraxis said:It's been hinted we'll see a Kid Icarus game on the Revolution from Shigeru Miyamoto
BTW, I can see why the Micro will be cheaper. The Micro only plays GBA games from what I understand, no old gameboy and gameboy color games. That means it can remove the Z80 processor (the GBA SP and GBA have a Z80 processor from the GameBoy Color to play old games), saving money. And the screen is smaller, saving more money. As a result it'll probably be the cheapest handheld sold by Nintendo.
did the psx ever make it to the us at all?"What I can tell you is the other time that Sony tried [making an all-purpose console], it failed miserably. And it's called the PSX. So I think that the consumer will vote with their dollar when everything comes out and everything is known. We do believe a center-of-the-plate gaming strategy is going to make sense in this marketplace. Especially when it's supported with fantastic software."
I guess it was supposed to read "flying cape".GFLPraxis said:There was a flying cap in old Mario games?
I'm pretty sure there wasn't. The only thing that links them is riding Yoshi, and that was ONLY in Super Mario Sunshine (64 didn't have it). Oh, and Goombas die when you jump on their heads.
Oh, I didn't understand the post you replied to. I've never played Mario 64, but I thought I remembered the flying cape from my childhood, hence my previous post. And there was a bear-like flying thing too. Has he ever used the same thing to fly in to seperate games?GFLPraxis said:There wasn't a flying cape in Mario 64
That's Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World respectively. Ah, nostalgia!Poff said:Oh, I didn't understand the post you replied to.

the cape was in super mario world for SNES.
And here are two pictures but I don't know what games these were from. (not from smw snes atleast.)
Didn't mario world have the other cape? the yellow one, used as a parachute..GFLPraxis said:Yup. Mario 3 had the racoon tail to fly, Mario World had the cape, Mario 64 had the cap, and Sunshine had the rocket nozzle on FLUDD.
