6/22/2001: GameBoy Advance of Nintendo already to the sale
The piece of news is already available in the shops vídeoconsola of pocket of Nintendo, GameBoy Advance. The technological jump with regard to his antecesora, GameBoy Color, has been considerable: it incorporates a processor ARM of 32 bits into integrated cache memory, opposite to the scarce 8 bits of GameBoy Color.
One of the aspects that more have taken care, undoubtedly, has been the screen of the console. It is a question of a reflecting screen 2,9 inches TFT with a resolution of 240x160. The colors palette is 32.768, reaching 511 simultaneous colors for sprite and 32.768 colors in bitmap. GameBoy Color was only capable of showing 56 simultaneous colors.
The loudspeaker sound is monoaural, although stereo has earphones exit. By means of a communications cable it is possible to connect it to another 3 consoles. According to Nintendo the battery (two alkaline batteries AA) lasts 15 hours, 5 more than in GameBoy Color. GameBoy Advance weighs (without batteries?) I half-close to the 140 gm (almost like a Nokia 3210).
It is compatible with the games of the GameBoy and GameBoy Color, and Nintendo affirms that it will be possible to play with the control of the future console GAMECUBE. Also they think of developing compatible games for both consoles, although this at first is a project. The estimated price of the GBA places environment to 20.000 ptas.
Well, already he knows. If it belongs to through those that he cannot live without playing, this perhaps is his option, at least technically there is nothing seemed at present. Although from here a servant wanted to attract attention to that there are many girls round there needed from fondness, and to make use of the summer in playing the GameBoy is something... let's say limited.
(PD: it is not a comment with intentions male chauvinists, eye; and the reality is that immense most of users of consoles are males, sometimes much creciditos...)
