ONM Remembered – #252

“We’re building a machine with only one purpose – to play video games!”


from Nintendo Pro issue 33 (2000)


Ah, the Ninty consoles of the year 2000. The Nintendo 64, the Game Boy Color, the… Dolphin? And what the heck is that?!

I always feel console mock-ups are just like novels in how they paint a picture of the author. Okay, they don’t reveal quite as much on a psychological level, but they do show what they think is a cool look for consumer hardware – and whoever conceived this must really have loved flattened SEGA Saturns with cute little leggies. I couldn’t tell you what the Game Boy Advance is supposed to look like, though. A Game Gear wrapped in a condom?
