We reviewed the original BittBoy some time ago and found it to be a perfectly likeable – if legally questionable – handheld system. Now, the company behind it is releasing a successor, and while it retains the same basic design, there are a few extra features worth noting (and no, it's no less dubious from a legal perspective).

This time around, the New BittBoy (for that is its name) supports MicroSD cards, which presumably means you can load up more (ahem) 'games'. The console can play NES, Game Boy and Game Boy Color titles, and even has save state functionality.

Fashioned from ABS plastic and boasting measurements of 6.8x9.9x1.3cm, the BittBoy has a 2.4-inch IPS screen and a 3.5mm headphone socket. It's all powered by a rechargeable 700mAh battery and for those times when you fancy the big-screen experience, there's a TV-out option.

You can pre-order one of these right now for $39.99, which is a $20 saving on the typical price. Orders are expected to ship between the 15th and 20th December, so you'd better get in quick if you want one; once Soulja Boy hears about it, he'll no doubt buy up all the stock and rechristen it the 'SouljaBoy'.
