Nintendo announced today there will be two (2) new colors available for the Game Boy Advance SP in September to commemorate sales of 1.1 million units of the system since launch: Flame & Onyx.

Sweet! I've been using a Platinum SP since its launch, and though I am very pleased with the color as it makes the device look metallic, it also tends to be on the reflective side making playing in the sun very difficult.

A federal appeals court today ruled that video games are indeed protected under the first amendment of the US Constitution:

"If the First Amendment is versatile enough to 'shield [the] painting of Jackson Pollock, music of Arnold Schoenberg, or Jabberwocky verse of Lewis Carroll,' we see no reason why the pictures, graphic design, concept art, sounds, music, stories, and narrative present in video games are not entitled to a similar protection," the court said in its ruling. "The mere fact that they appear in a novel medium is of no legal consequence."

This reverses a controversial earlier court ruling that sought to limit access to mature games. Thanks to CNN Money for running the story.
