He said the Nintendo DS-GameBoy hybrid came with extra buttons compared to a regular GameBoy. For example, in addition to the usual ‘A’ and ‘B’ buttons, ‘Start’ and ‘Select’ buttons and the D pad, it also had two additional buttons for ‘X’ and ‘Y’. This is because a Nintendo DS also has two buttons. Also on the back, the custom console had two buttons, probably indicating the ‘L’ and ‘R’.

In addition, there was also a folding screen, from a GameBoy Advance SP. According to the YouTuber, he had no idea how it was implemented, but it looked extremely amazing. Additionally, the hybrid console’s primary screen was a touchscreen, similar to that of the DS. As expected, the custom product also had separate slots for DS and GameBoy Advance titles.

However, there were also several issues with this product which the YouTuber purchased from a website. He had to press really hard on the D-pad to make it work. The same was true for the buttons on the front. While pressing it, it took him more effort to register the inputs on the screen.
