Nintendo is confirming that Game Boy Advance won't launch this summer. As many had expected, Nintendo will delay the launch of the new machine from its previously anticipated August release to a new date in November or December. Officially, Nintendo is placing the blame for the delay on difficulties in securing LCD's and integrated circuits for the new handheld. Much of the available supply, however, is still being funneled into production of the current Game Boy Color, which continues to hold better than 90 percent of the handheld console market and accounts for nearly 30 percent of Nintendo's total revenue.
