Unbox Therapy publishes Game Boy tribute video
The Game Boy has just celebrated the 25th anniversary of a highly illustrious history filled with the most iconic handheld devices in gaming and, really, in all of tech. It had seen a total of about nine devices, with the trademark 8 bit processing innards common among the versions until the Game Boy Advance, which saw a move to 32 bit. It was single-handedly the textbook example of iteration. The series even saw a move to color pixel displays with the Game Boy Color, an unprecedented milestone for handheld gaming, and which paved the way for the Nintendo DS, 3DS, Sony PSP and Vita, the premier full color handhelds of today. Without Nintendo’s advance (pun intended), we would have never been able to enjoy handheld gaming in our lifetimes.
Lou from Unbox Therapy had to make a Game Boy Tribute video in celebration of that legacy.
All hail the Game Boy series that cemented Nintendo’s place in history (Maybe Apple and Nintendo had more in common than we thought):
