Game Boy Micro review over at IGN

 

The official US release isn't September 17th, but IGN has one of the first hands-on reviews of the Game Boy Micro, Nintendo's seriously small new gaming handheld. Ok, so once you get past the whole thing about how freaking tiny it is, is the GBM worth...

Nintendo Game Boy Micro review: Nintendo Game Boy Micro

 

Nintendo Game Boy Micro

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.

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

Slight buzz from the headphone jack, Only supports Game Boy Advance titles, New power jack means you have to purchase new accessories

In all, the Nintendo Game Boy Micro is quite impressive. The kind of portable gaming device that you could easily carry with you without looking like you were packing an oversized Sharp Organizer so you could talk to your new found furry friends. Of...

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.

The third incarnation of Nintendo's Game Boy Advance line, Game Boy Micro just might be the quintessential pocket game device. Internally, Micro is more or less the same as the bi-folding Game Boy Adavance SP, itself a revamped update of the original...

E3 2005: Hands On - Game Boy Micro

 

The Game Boy Micro has to be, simply one of the sleekest, most compact, and all around portable hand held ever made. Speaking from a design point, it's even better looking than the Game Boy Advance SP, and looking at it from a portability standpoint,...

Nintendo Game Boy Micro

 

Attractive design, removable faceplate, good battery life

Little too small

This gorgeous design will appeal to the fashion savvy among us and those that love to have the latest cool mini device on the market but hardcore games will probably stick to their DS or SP.
