Gameboy Micro - A Forgotten Gem

nollie99, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Though I was aware of the Gameboy Micro's release in 2005, it seems like myself, no one really took any notice at all when it launched, obscured by the release of 2004's original Nintendo DS and Sony PSP. The GBMicro really didn't offer anything new to the handheld gaming market at all, though there are a few factors which does help level the field of the major handhelds.
  • Pros: Looks fantastic, Great battery life, amazing screen, huge library of games, cheap
  • Cons: Outdated, Non - Standardised Charger, Less than satisfactory speakers

A great little console perfect for playing games on the move.

  • Excerpt: The Gameboy Micro was a release by Nintendo in late 2005. The console was a smaller, sleeker version of the Gameboy SP which in turn was an improvement on the Gameboy Advance. The console plays Gameboy Advance games; however it cannot play Gameboy Colour or original Gameboy games due to the lack of supporting hardware installed on the console.

The best console you could ever buy...for £30.

  • Excerpt: Although the Game Boy Micro will never be competing with the PS3 graphically speaking, in the fun to money ratio, it certainly will be. I got mine for £15 online at Amazon, which i think is a absolutely fantastic deal. If you love the SNES games of old, this will be the console for you. I would say that it sort of unofficially became a port for nintendo's best NES/SNES games, with the likes of Zelda and Mario Brothers making an appearance.

  • Summary: I have received mine from a friend. I have to agree with core2kid, the first thing i noticed (beside the size, buttons ...etc) was that the screen looked more brighter than my old gameboy advance.

  • Excerpt: The gameboy micro is in my opinion a truly fantastic machine firstly i know every one thinks the screen is really small and perfetic to play all your rpg's like zelda with really small writing or even just mario bros for that matter. i assure you with this incredible back lit screen which is probably brighter than my ds lite screens makes it easy to see all the details and writting which is how those great nintendo titles are meant to be shown.
