    I don't like the way he says my, my, my.
    Whatever happened to 'we'?

    EDIT: My, not I. Stupid me.

    start watching at 2:00.

    he keeps saying "my, my, my". I'm pretty sure Nintendo isn't "his" to do with as he pleases.

    its fine if he feels "he" is making the technology, its sony and microsoft who perfect it.

    As the techology advances, there's bound to be at least some inspiration from the original deviation. Sometimes it may be a bit too similar (TENGEN's Tetris and Nintendo's Tetris on the NES and the following lawsuit) but anyway. Nintendo's been around for quite some time, so it's expected that the newer companies will take a bit of note from them and try to use what they have seen from Nintendo to bring something new(ish) to the table.

    As far as his air of ownership of the company, pretty sure he didn't mean he was the puppetmaster of the show. Sort of how a Staples employee would reffer to Staples products as "his" products when he talks about it with his family or such. He probably should've said "our", but whatever floats Reggie's boat.

    I think you guys are probably looking too much into the my stuff. I don't think he meant it was just talking without thinking. I'm pretty sure he know's he's not running the whole show.

    Dear Reggie...

    1. The first handheld with a touchscreen was Tiger's Game.Com, not the DS.
    2. Nintendo didn't use "joysticks" first, you probably meant Analog Sticks.

    Please don't pretend you're more of an idiot then you actually are, he's refering to the DS which is a system with LCD screens and a touchscreen over one of them. I clearly specified LCD+touchscreen as a condition because you can actually use a touch-sensitive film without even having a screen underneath as means of input, making it practically a touchpad but still.

    If it bothers you so much, I can remove the LCD part, I'm still going to be right and Reggie will still be wrong.

    Nintendo copied from Tiger Electronics in Reggie's terms, suck it up.

    The first handheld (gaming device, as you could actually go even deeper into the subject and get results that are older) with a touchscreen was the Game.Com, not a Nintendo product. It's not hard to understand, it's a historical fact, stop being butt-hurt.

    I will give an incredibly valuable lesson about life that you should remember till the end of your days - you don't have to "say" something to convey it.

    For example, by saying "Don't touch the stove, it's on", what you're actually saying is "The stove is hot, watch out". Meaning can be direct or indirect, implied, inferred - it's a matter of linguistics. I don't exect you to understand that, I'm expecting you to know that when a Nintendo official speaks of "the first handheld device with a touchscreen they made", you should think back to which one it was, and that's the DS, and realize that he means an LCD screen with a touchscreen because that's the touch input device the DS was equipped with. Is that crystal clear? I'm not upset, I'm trying to explain something to you and you do everything to bounce the ball back for no apparent reason, being wrong at that.



    Now forgive me, I will refrain from carrying on arguing about this, I already corrected the non-existant mistake just for your comfort, let's not derail the thread any further.

    It's funny though because I don't see LCD screens in Game.com specs ANYWHERE. Although it did have a touchscreen.

    System Size (LxWxD) Original: 190 x 108 x 19 mm / Pocket Pro: 140 x 86 x 28 mm Processor Chip Sharp SM8521 8-Bit CPU Screen Specs 200 x 160 resolution, 12 x 10 grid based touch screen, 3.5 in. diagonal (Original) / 2,8 in. diagonal (Pocket Pro) Color System Black and White, with 4 gray levels Sound/Music Monoaural, with 8-bit PCM and FM-synthesis, through a single speaker located in the upper left corner Power Source 4 AA Batteries (2 AA batteries in Pocket and Pocket Pro) or AC Adapter Ports Serial Comm Port for the Compete.com cable, internet cable and weblink cable;
    3.5 mm Audio Out Jack for headphones; DC9 V in (AC Adapter); 2 Cartridge Slots (1 on the Pocket and Pocket Pro) Buttons Power (On/Off);
    Action (A, B, C, D); 3 Function (Menu, Sound, Pause); 1 Eight-way Directional Pad; Volume; Contrast; Reset (On system’s underside)

    I'm pretty sure the DS wasn,t the first handheld with a touchscreen or an LCD. But I don't see an LCD mentioned in the specs.

    Valwin of ALL the times i've ever called you a retard, you've never justified it quite as much as you just have in this thread.


    I didn't even know who Reggie was. Seems like a douche. Not very compliant with the Nintendo image.

    Uhm... how do I say this...

    LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display. It's the type of display used on anything between electronic wristwatches and LCD TV's... Game.Com clearly has an LCD screen.
