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.

Nintendo Game Boy Micro (20th Anniversary Edition)

 

Pocket-friendly small size; bright, brilliant screen; decent battery life; standard headphone jack; huge library of games; swappable faceplates provide screen protection

Game Boy titles are looking old vs. more advanced competition; body and screen size may be just too small for some; not compatible with older GBA accessories and older Game Boy games; the more advanced and equally bright DS Lite--which can play all of...

Nintendo's latest Game Boy has an interesting design but doesn't offer anything you can't find in the company's other portables.

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

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.

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.
