Nintendo unveils wireless device that allows users to play each other without cables.
September 26, 2003: 7:07 AM EDT MAKUHARI, Japan (Reuters) - Japanese video game company Nintendo Co. Ltd said Friday it plans early next year to offer a device that allows GameBoy Advance users to play games together without the use of cables.
The device will be included free of charge with the purchase of one of two "Pokemon" games, due to be released early next year, for Nintendo's hand-held game machine.
"We've had a lot of discussions about how to extend the networking capabilities for games such as 'Pokemon', to enhance head-to-head battles, exchange of information and communication with others," said Nintendo President Satoru Iwata in a speech on the opening day of the Tokyo Game Show.
The wireless module will be bundled with Nintendo's "Pokemon Fire Red" and "Pokemon Leaf Green" titles for GameBoy Advance that will go on sale in Japan early next year. The games will sell for 4,800, or $43.
Nintendo said it planned to roll out other titles for the GameBoy Advance compatible with the device in the future.
Motorola Inc (MOT :Research ,Estimates ). designed the chip that powers the device's wireless functions.
"It was designed primarily with the gaming experience in mind," Bridgette Cosentino, director of wireless connectivity at Motorola's semiconductor products group, told Reuters. She said the chip was customized to maximize battery life.
Iwata said the technology was similar to Bluetooth, which allows devices to communicate with each other without a physical wire connection. The wireless network extends for "several meters," Iwata said.
The most recent "Pokemon" title for GameBoy Advance sold over 10 million titles worldwide, Nintendo said.
Shares in Nintendo ended up 2.33 percent at 9,670 compared to a 0.08 percent rise in the Nikkei 225 average.

They are remakes of the old Red and Blue games, on the GBA. Many things will be added and the graphics are from Ruby and Sapphire.

Who knows, we just have to wate till it comes out. Here is something off my site.
"There will be a new wireless device that will come with Fire Red and Leaf Green. This device is like a Link Cable but wireless, and it will be able to let up to five players play each other (mabe like a battle or something). You will be able to use this on the Game Boy Advance and the Game Boy Advance SP."

If you see it says up to five players.

You should have just linked them to the article so you could plug your site Arcanine. ^_^;

It's a good idea, as long as the connection is fast and stable.

They should have intergrated Wi-fi so you can go in the internet via GBA...

(although it's not possible....)

Well the GCN does have optional Broadband and internet capabilities. They may make a use with the games someday...

I'm deciding to move this topig to Fire Red and Leaf Green Discussion. It'll gain popularity there, even though there will be two discussion topics.
Thread moved.
