Favourite Nintendo hardware revision (so far)

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Favourite Nintendo hardware revision (so far)

It's kind of funny how people were so fine with the label "Gameboy" but were really creeped out by the suggestion of a more mature revision called the "Gameman"



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Nintendo DS Lite.

It's gorgeous, and the form is perfect.

Nintendo trademarked it as Gameboy Color, not Gameboy Colour! Do you call Fortnite, Fortnight? 

Hey it's not my fault Nintendo chose the wrong spelling.

I blame American imperialism :P

In general though, I call things whatever I feel like calling them, for example, Pangolier in Dota2 is called Pangoloid in my world. Bloodseeker is Bloodcyka, etc.
And I've never even thought about how to spell fortnight because I've never talked about that game before. But thanks for the idea. Fortnight it is!



I LOVE ICELAND!

The Gameboy SP, to me it was a whole other experience to being able to play at night without a lamp after bedtime. I remember I started to progress a lot more than my brother in Pokemon Sapphire because me playing at night.



I know... my English sucks.

SP for me! Taking the advancements of that gen and making it foldable and incredibly transportable was amazing.



While the DS Lite is easily my favourite revision, I think (objectively) the Gameboy Advance SP was the best revision over its predecessor.

If Wii can be considered a revision of the Gamecube (2 Gamecubes snapped together), then I think that's a monstrous upgrade that improved the platform and its appeal tenfold... While it only sold five times better, it probably had to be ten times as appealing to hit that 100M+ number.

Okay. So, the Switch is just a bit more powerful than the Wii U.

Do you consider the Switch a revised Wii U? Seriously?

By that metric, I guess the GBA would be a revised SNES, and so on.. right?



I'd have to go with the DSL. I think that is when the DS just took off and never looked back, all the way to 154 million systems. That's what my head tells me.

Now, my heart tells me, NEW 3DS, I loved playing xenoblade on it, and the eye tracking 3D was amazing for me. I always have the 3D slider at maximum, so the eye tracking was really perfect me.

Now, as far as the most important, I think that goes to the GBA SP... it really fealt like Nintendo finally found some brain cells to use and brought them closer to the then current tech.



Just an old man, a family man, and a gamer. My family is more important to me then life itself.

Wii is clearly NOT a Gamecube revision. Totally different branding, controller, OS, media, etc. About the only thing they have in common is their CPU/GPU architecture and one of their two RAM types.

Only if somehow your Switch plays Wii U disks and your GBA plays SNES cartridges. Mine certainly don't.
