It looks like Nintendo might be finally getting the idea that not everyone wants to carry around a dedicated gaming device. While they still want to sell hardware, selling software has some benefits as well. According to sources, they've recently filed a patent for an emulator that will run on mobile phones and will bring classic gameboy games to your favorite device. I wish them the best as they do need to switch things up a bit if they want to quit losing money.
Many have called for the company to consider making its signature titles available on smartphone devices as a way to shore up struggling hardware sales, but thus far the company has seemed reluctant to the idea. Lately, it has been offering spin-off games from the Pokémon series on iPhone and iPad, but it has yet to provide full ports, as Square-Enix has with the Final Fantasy series, for instance.
