Bought a Gameboy Micro the other day and it is AWESOME! It's like watching a dvd. I am going to buy some Pokemon games, lol.

Here is a review.

The screen is brilliant and very clear like watching a dvd and it is very small and can fit in your pocket also it comes with a small pouch/pocket to put it in to stop dust getting on it.

It has a light on the screen so you can even play in the dark, that's if you know where to put your fingers!

Overview.

Graphics: 9/10
Screen:10/10
Size: 10/10
Style:9/10
Worth it? YES!

Over all 38/40!

Do you mean the sp?

No. I believe the Game Boy Micro and SP are two different handhelds. Nintendo annoy me though.

Ok, way too much chat speak going on in here guys. :tsk:

Pokemon? Why is this not dead yet?

Is the screen hard to see on them?

Is there a huge reason to not just go the DS route?

the screen is slightly bigger than a mobile's and very clear. I just think it's saves alod of money because I got it for seventy pounds cheaper than the DS. The problem is DS has lots of good games and GBA don't have them. Still a nice little console.

DS all the way in my opinion.

@Boba Rhett - Pokemon is dead, in my opinion. Plus they're still making new episodes for some reason...

I don't like the shows I just like the games. Anyway the point is has anyone got one of these?

I wanted one a while ago, never got one.



Also, Aida, I noticed you changed the i've in you're sig too I've. I was not trying to be nit picky so if I was I am sorry.

I saw some for sale for $40 (~20 pounds) on black friday and almost bought one, but since they only play GBA games I decided it wasn't worth it.

Daft Adidas
02-08-2007, 08:00 AM
hmm that is the problem I mentioned a while ago they only play GBA games and Nintendo DS have tons of good games exclusives for their console.

yes the psp is for sure a better console but if you want gba games then look into a micro. PSP does rule though!

1. i liek mudkipz

2. It is pretty small.

3. Not really, unless you want something extremely portable. I can conceal it in one palm, perfect for class.

well done Milo, Mudkip? That's the small blue one right? Yeh small but portable it should be called GBP (Gameboy Portable)

On-topic:
I would rather have a DS.

@Darth Aida - The only pokemon games I like are the old-skool Game Boy ones, like red, blue, gold and silver.

It's quick gaming on the run, and it's Game Boy, of course I like it lol, I have lots of GBA games. I also have a GBA SP, DS and DS lite. I used to have an original GBA but traded it in to get the SP. Never owned the original, pocket or color GBs, but have played them plenty of times.

But as good as the GBA is, the DS outclasses it completely since it is a GBA and a DS at the same time :p lol.

I've still got a Snes and an N64 sat under my bed... I'm an ancient keeper, i've got a mega drive, Mega Drive II, Sega SAturn, Psone, Playstation, (Big and small versions), Two original gameboys (<3) GBA, GB pocket, GB Light, (Has an eerie green backlight, found it in a shop in tenerife lol), GBA SP, GB pocket, Sega Gamegear...(List goes on) I Really did like the Nintendo stuff up intil the release of the GBA SP, then IMO it went downhill after that. Maybe because they target them at the "younger people" (No offence Lynk ;) )

Let's not get nuts. I'd rather that Nintendo stayed the underdog. They're doing great things in their efforts to shake things up.


@ TSR: Don't worry, I'm only 8.

EDIT: What was wrong with the SP?

Daft Adidas

The SP wasn't horrible, but it was worse than the previous handhelds. I was always a fan of Advanced Wars 2, but that's about it.

Lynk Former
02-10-2007, 09:28 PM
I still don't understand. The original GBA ran on normal batteries, the GBA SP ran on a built-in rechargable battery and the battery life was longer. The original GBA had no light, the GBA SP did. The GBA SP was more compact than the original GBA. It was the original GBA, but better.

And if you're all angry at the fact that upgraded versions of the GBA exist, note that this occurs because certain materials to make them better have finally become cost effective. Things such as better lcd screens and lithium-ion batteries with a longer life become available later on in the systems life. It's the same reason why the DS lite exists and why the GBA SP got an upgraded screen when the GB micro was released.

Hell, if Nintendo wanted to they could release another upgrade for the GBA SP to make the battery life last 30-40 hours.

Daft Adidas

wow 30 - 40 hours again geewiz! The micro when you charge it it only lasts about ten hours at the most and that's pretty c**p but it has a light an all and it can play it under my bed sheets in the dark and see well. I love my Micro. so far i have played my Emerald for twenty three hours!

I agree. When the DS came out, my hate towards Nintendo began. I won't explain why though. And I've grown tired of Pokemon now and I completed all the ones from Red to Emerald.

in this case you can help me? I'm stuck on Emerald, just don't have a clue what to do! I'll PM you.

@ TSR: I don't like Nintendogs.

@ Topsite: Ironically when I first heard about the DS, my excitement over video games grew. Before the DS I was growing bored of everything that was being released for everything. The DS and then Wii brought something new and without them I would've quit video games.


But you know what the funny thing is? Ever since the DS was released, the age demographic that has been buying the DS have been teens to older people. The Game Boy on the other hand has retained all of the children as its core audience. The DS ain't doing too bad for itself for a childrens handheld huh.
