How many of you also are considering picking up one of these PocketCHIP handhelds?

Like a lot of folks, I didn't know a thing about the PocketCHIP handheld system until today.

Now that I'm aware of it, though, I can't help but want one--and rather desperately, at that.

If you're still out of the loop as to what the PocketCHIP is, well, there isn't much I can say to bring you up to speed. That's not because I'm a big jerk, mind you; rather it's because I don't quite understand it myself.

This trailer should at least give you an idea as to what you'll get if you ever buy one of these suckers.

Speaking of which, this adorable, minuscule handheld--which plays games made for the PICO-8 "fantasy console," that much I know--will set you back just $49.

Or at least that's all it'll set you back if you pre-order one soon.

I'm seriously considering doing that, of course--in part because the PocketCHIP just seems like a cool gadget, and in part because I like the look of some of the PICO-8 games that can be found on

How about all of you wonderful people? Are any of you contemplating picking up one of these portables on or around its June launch?
