But I was talking about a sub-gameboy pricepoint. Now maybe it's the color LCD which would make that impossible, in which case no degree of miniaturization of the 2600 chipset will help (and I don't think it's acceptable to go to a B&W LCD screen) but that's the idea, to find a niche between keychain games and pocket game systems like the Gameboy. Just think, include every single Atari brand title as well and sell it for $20.

Have you seen the kind of limited graphics and sound that those keychain games feature? It's certainly nothing approaching the 2600, but they crank out a zillion of those things.
