I had the Atari Lynx (the orig sized one)
I also had a PC Engine GT aka the Turbo Express and the orig Gameboy.

As a Deltan(check bio) I couldn't help but come up with this brilliant idea:

The new PSP:

* Touch screen - that can also bring up keyboard(like Apple iPhone).
* has rumble and 6 axis
* doubles as a Ps3 controller
* can take all video/audio feed from a Ps3(no need to turn on the TV) - can use your ps3 entirely from the PSP.

Wow. This will pawn all handhelds and further promote sales of Ps3.

C'mon Sony. Just do it before Micro$oft copies my idea. I can see Billy boy salivating now.
