Obama’s speech writer not in touch with today’s youth

Obama in Texas:

Obama told the Austin crowd that they should try to recruit their friends to support his campaign. “I want you to tell them, ‘It’s time for you to turn off the TV and stop playing GameBoy,'” Obama said. “We’ve got work to do.”

Gameboy? What? Even Joystiq was baffled. The generation has moved on with portable devices such as the Sony PSP or the Nintendo DS (Phat) or Nintendo DS Lite. Even with the newer generation of gaming devices such as the PS3, Wii and 360 would have been a more preferable word choice.
Ick. Just shows you how trying to get in touch with young people requires… well, knowledge of young people.
