LOL...you are right about that, they are bigger than the popular handhelds...then you have the VMU memory card that slides out to give you mini-games, and present graphics while you play with it inserted into the controller :) . I've had mine since it came out...I think it was the end of 1999. I can't remember exactly though. I worked at Hollywood Video and we gave out $10 coupons to buy the machine at Electronic Boutique, along with some other retailers. They failed to place a limit on the coupons or any other stipulations, so I received one for free...all I paid for was tax, a game, and an extra controller :tazz: ...I'm glad I didn't pay for it, since it really didn't last long at all.

Availability is November in the UK.
And it looks like $299 in the US. Didn't realise the exhange rate was about 1:1!!!

Anyway, I guess I'll be waiting a year or so until it becomes a little more affordable.
