Another retro design from Nintendo. Their new handheld system described in a GameSport article features two screens. I had to laugh (and therefore date myself as old) at the suggestion that this system was innovative. It’s only innovative in the Microsoft sense. You see, me and my brother played a similar-looking system 20 years ago, when it was called the Nintendo Game and Watch (notice the dual-screen units). I guess the Watch part allows kids to take it to school – to count the minutes until recess and a round of Donkey Kong.
