Pocket Pix add-on after GameBoy set

Adapter allows movies, video and MP3s to play

HOLLYWOOD — A cartridge add-on could turn tens of millions of GameBoy Advance and Advance SP devices into handheld video and music players.

Pocketainment has joined with Pocket PC Films, which sells movies and other entertainment tweaked to run on handhelds, in backing the Pocket Pix Cartridge. The adapter allows full-length movies, video and MP3s to play on GameBoy Advances and their recently released successor, the GameBoy Advance SP.

Pocket PC already has a substantial library of films, including “The Big Easy” and “Natural Born Killers,” old TV shows, language and business programs and more.

The cartridge system will debut at next month’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, at a suggested price of $59.95, including a flash memory card.
