"Playstation Game Boy:" When genericized trademarks collide

"PlayStation" is synonymous with console gaming. Game Boy is synonymous with portable gaming. Both are synonymous with video games. So it's no surprise that the official police report from the sad story of one kid getting arrested after "stealing" a wrapped Game Boy has the stolen goods listed as a "PlayStation Game Boy." Not as ridiculous as the story itself, but enough cross-pollination of genericized trademarks already.
