Why doesnt anyone here review or talk about this. It's a console too y'know! :mad:
Let's talk about it for once, okay? I think that it has a good selection of games, that will most likely occupy your weekend. Even though all of it's titles are rated E, they still challenge you fairly well. The graphics however might be a little less powerful than say, Xbox 360, but the bargain price more than makes up for it. What do you think?

I need a second opinion here.

Never heard of it. Googling... This review (http://arstechnica.com/reviews/hardware/vsmile.ars) covers it pretty thoroughly - basically, you get what you pay for. The option to reconfigure the controller for left-handed gamers is interesting, although it could lead to a rude awakening when they try to play any other game system.

My 5 yr old got the hand held one for X-Mas last year (when he was 4) and it's okay for his age group. The games are very simple, the graphics not terrible, but the games still run upwards of $20 each.
The connection for the TV hookup wasn't very good to start with and now requires a lot of english to keep a clean TV image/sound. Usually more of a hassle to use than just sticking to the LCD (which got scratched up very fast)
As it is Gramma's getting him a GameBoy Advance or Nintendo DS this year and I think once it's in his hands the V-Smile will be gone from memory. The portable game also allows for switching controller sides and is easy to operate for little hands, too.

Yeah, I think the GBA is a better choice, as long as the kid is mature enough to take care of it and not drool on the screen or something.
