Clumsy Westerners Need Not Apply

"Nintendo surprised many by unveiling a new version of its best- selling GameBoy, called the GameBoy Micro, due to go on sale in the autumn.
The tiny game player is just slightly bigger than an iPod Mini, but two-thirds the weight."

Good to see that Nintendo are going for the hitherto-ignored market of video games for really tiny people...

The new X-Brick is even uglier than its predecessor, and has the wrong name (wouldn't "Next-Box" have been much better than the surreal "X-Box360"?), and I'm undecided about the look of Sony's new machine, but it promises to be backwards compatible with both previous incarnations of the hardware, and that's enough to sell me on it.
