the Nintendo DS

Anyone else find this pic of the new Nintendo DS system a bit reminiscent of something from their past? I do, and I just figured out what it is I was thinking of.

The game was Donkey Kong, and the year was 1982. And I was damn impressed with this piece of hardware.

Looking at that site I see this, the Multi-Williams for sale for $3100. Robotron, Joust, Defender, Stargate, and some junk. Neat. Asteroids for $1400, Frogger for $1500. Joust alone for $1800. Zaxxon for $1300. Nostalgic wastes of money, anyone? :) It's almost inspiring me to look into building a MAME cabinet.

Heh. Riiiight.
