The Daily Hotness: The SNES was the greatest (08/04/08)

It’s a shame Nintendo never capitalized on making portable versions of their older systems. If Sega could do it with the Nomad, then Nintendo could have done the same thing with the SNES! Granted, they probably just wanted everyone to focus on the GameBoys. Still, it would be awesome to own an officially made portable SNES. 

The Monthly Musing theme is announced, win a copy of Devil May Cry 4 for the PC, Ghostbusters has a release date but no publisher, Atlus reveals Eternal Poison, and plenty more happened on Monday.
