Perhaps the DS release has helped remind us all of the joys of handheld gaming; turns out that the Qbus has been around for a year already though only now coming to light properly. Looking like a GBA rip off, it’s really an emulator with a built in flashwriter. The included software will links up to the Qboy network where you can download ROM’s, movies and music. Downloads can then be written to the 256MB Flash cartridge which is compatible with both the GBA and the DS. The legal ramifications of the operation is still unclear, but it does provide a ground where independent developers can get their creations out to the public. The Qbus is available in the US now, though no word of it making a trip to Europe. It costs $90.
