Game Boy Player - GBA - Preview
E3 2003 - Hands On
When I went in to talk with Majesco, I was impressed at the lineup of games that they had on display for 2003. One thing that caught my eye though is something that I can really see as not only being fun, but also a necessity for long road trips or flights with kids.
Majesco has unveiled it’s new GBA TV, which acts similar to a playback VCR. Basically, cartridges will be sold for around $19.99 apiece, and they are shooting for each cart to contain over an hours worth of video. The episode of the cartoon “Arthur” was running when I was there, and looked surprisingly good on the little system. Even better … there are no additional attachments to buy, and the carts won’t run batteries down any more than a standard GBA game. Majesco is currently working with various networks on maximizing the availability of shows and episodes, and hope to have the product released in Winter of 2003.
