Gizmondo, the red headed step child of the handheld video game market, is set to launch in the US this weekend. The system plays games, has built-in GPS, plays music, has a camera, and can send/receive text messages. The big games for the launch are EA's SSX 3 and FIFA 2005. Otherwise you may be interested in a game called Sticky Balls, which is the follow up to Alec Baldwin's "Saturday Night Live" game, Schwetty Balls. I haven't yet put the Gizmondo in the realm of the much lambasted N-Gage, but I do believe its heading in that direction.

I do have to say, though, that I am interested in a game called Colors which utilizes the GPS for real-world turf grabbing (think turf battles in GTA:SA). The price for the unit is $229 which requires you to allow up to three 40 second commercials to be sent to the unit each day, or $399 which eliminates the commercials and ads GPS Navigation capability for your car.
