Did you know, the Game Boy Color had wireless capabilities via an infrared sensor? Or that the system also had motion controls? Did you know that the Game Boy Advance was supposed to have online and wireless multiplayer at one point?

Please do check out Did You Know Gaming's official YouTube channel if you have even a casual interest in gaming history and fun facts. I've been subscribed for nearly a year now, and I've always really enjoyed the content, even when it's for a series I'm not particularly interested in.
