Look out iTunes video store! Nintendo and AM3 are now distributing video content for the GBA Movie Player this winter in Japan. Taking the form of an old-school "Gashapon" (toy capsule) machine, this device allows you to insert your GBA movie player flash memory card, crank a handle and instantly download anime episodes to watch on your GBA. Episodes are around 25 minutes each and priced at 300-yen to download, with popular shows being offered, such as Pokemon and Detective Conan. There even appears to be a "free content" button, presumably giving you trailers, etc. The machines will be dotted around at Japanese Pokemon Centers, Toys "R" Us stores and other kid-friendly outlets.
