Game Boy iPhone Case


This could be possibly one of the coolest iPhone 3G cases we have seen yet.  “That Girl” over at That Girl’s Site snapped this shot on a recent trip to Japan.  As you can see in the photo, the clear hard plastic case is snaps onto the rear of the iPhone-looks good on the white model, not sure what it would look like on the black one.

No word on where you can purchase your own-if you know post a comment below.
