Game Boy Micro

 

Although a pioneer in the interactive entertainment business, when it comes to dollars and cents, Nintendo doesn't play around.

Portability; Software Library; Screen Brightness; Sense of Style

Price; Durability; Button positioning

For the frequent flier or gamer who's got to have it all, the Micro is an excellent fit.

Game Boy Micro

 

Most of us have seen an adult or two furtively playing a Game Boy Advance while stealing sideways glances, hoping no other adult is paying attention. Nintendo, which some believe has saturated the youth market with the GBA and DS, is well aware of this...

Tiny, lightweight, and stylish, with a backlit and very clear screen, the Micro also taps into Game Boy Advance's existing library of more than 700 titles. Interchangeable faceplates.

Not as sturdy as the GBA SP or DS. DS games are not compatible with the Micro.

Nintendo's stylish Micro makes the Game Boy Advance cool for adults.

Short Take: Nintendo's Game Boy Micro

 

Tim Adams writes, "So you like to game on the go. If you are like me, you have some games on your PDA, but they can chew through a battery pretty quickly. When I saw the Nintendo Game Boy Micro at a recent gaming convention, I found myself being...

Fantastic screen, Long battery life, Appealing size and design, Includes three removable faceplates that protect the screen

Game Boy Micro

 

The Game Boy has gone through several permutations since the original grayscale unit launched over 15 years ago. Ars reviews the latest, bite-sized incarnation of the popular gaming handheld.

So tiny!, Rugged design, each faceplate also protects the screen, The library of games, of course, Headphone jack!

A tad expensive compared to the SP, Could have included a wrist strap, Your girlfriend will make it pink. Fair warning

The third incarnation of Nintendo's Game Boy Advance line, Game Boy Micro just might be the quintessential pocket game device.

Game Boy Micro

 

Nintendo's smallest portable has a bright future.

At $99 the Micro is a very sleek portable. It plays all existing Game Boy Advance games, but Nintendo has nixed Game Boy Color support. In addition to the faceplates, the Micro comes packaged with the wall charger (different from the SP's charger) and...

Product Specifications

To celebrate 20 years of unprecedented success in the video game industry, Nintendo has made its newest game system look exactly like its first one - only much smaller. A retro version of Game Boy micro honors the 20th anniversary of the Nintendo Entertainment System home console. The new Game Boy micro base unit will be maroon with a gold NES-inspired faceplate. Game Boy micro represents the coolest piece of hardware in Game Boy history. It's small enough to slip into the tightest pair of jeans, and at 2.4 ounces, light enough to carry anywhere.
