The Play-Yan
« on: March 26, 2005, 05:34:46 pm »
Who has seen the Play-Yan for the DS in Japan?

It allows you to put movies, music, etc. onto your GBA and DS. Could there possibly be a chance of getting this in the US? Is it an answer to the PSP's ability to play movies? I think so.

Here is a page that I found on it:

I've seen a pic of it in a magazine (GamePro? EGM?).  Looked neat - but it looked like it was SD card based, which slides in what looks like a normal GBA card.  Side mounted ? (meaning you have to remove the playan to change SD cards...)

With the PSP out there, having this around COULD indeed make the DS and GBA more attractive to some high end users.  Even if they charged 50 bucks for it...   I've a PDA and compress videos to it on occasion.
