E3 2003 – Hands
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

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.
