GBA Movie Kiosks in Japan
« on: June 29, 2005, 12:38:05 PM »
Get your Pokemon episodes on the go.

A Japanese company, AM3, has developed a new kiosk that lets users download movies to their Game Boy Advance. Using their technology, which seems similar to Nintendo's Play-Yan device, consumers have been able to buy anime episodes on SmartMedia cards and play them on their GBAs via a special adaptor.    

The company now offers a download kiosk. Users can take their GBA Movie SmartMedia card, insert it (along with a nominal fee) into a vending machine, and download an episode of Pokemon to the card. The card can be re-written, and each kiosk contains eight different episodes.
