In-depth walkthrough of DS TV reveals Game & Watch inclusion

We knew just about how many people in Japan were going wild for this thing, but now you can count us among those who want one. Although we would have no use for it outside of one feature. The DS TV Tuner, it turns out, also includes some classic gaming action, bundling in the retro Nintendo title Game & Watch Fire.

We've placed a video of a version of Game & Watch Fire in action past the break, so be sure to give it a gander.

No, Dan. The DS TV uses this digital network for mobile devices that is pretty famous in Japan, but not available here. It's called 1seg and you can check out about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1seg
