Happy Birthday GAME BOY!
Nintendo's GAME BOY is celebrating its 20th anniversary today. The American launch in 1989 put an entire game console in the palm of your hand. The GAME BOY was also the first to have interchangeable cartridges. The famous green and black screen has been in the palms of millions of people worldwide. "Tetris" was no doubt the most popular GAME BOY cartridge. The puzzling blocks have been distracting kids, teenagers, and adults for years. Playstation's PSP would not be around today if it wasn't for Nintendo's pocket gold mine of 1989. Whether or not you whip out your GAME BOY today is up to you, but thank the folks at Nintendo for giving us the GAME BOY so that we can play with our smart devices that have "Tetris" in color instead of the green and black screen.
