  • Excerpt: This is just great for the kids, they will never put this down and it keeps them occupied for ages! Small and portable extremely useful for car journeys or if they get bored easily! Take rechargeable batteries and you will never need to replace any thing I have had mine ages and it works like it is brand new. It has well known games such as Pokemon and Zelda. The only problem is the games are quite expensive and kids get fed up of them if they play on it too much.
  • Pros: keeps kids entertained at all times
  • Cons: expensive but that is the only bad thing

The Best Out There

Price, Ciao
29 August 2000
  • Excerpt: Nintendo Gameboy Pocket is the best handheld console on the market apart from the Color version. The Gameboy needs only 2 AAA batteries or you can even use the recharble battery pack which i used. Compared to the old gameboy, there has been alot of changes made. Firstly the pocket is much smaller than the original. It also has a much larger screen which is funny as the pocket is smaller than the original.
  • Pros: Small, Light and Bright !
  • Cons: No colour, NO 32 BIT GRAPHICS !  !  !

The best so far

  • Excerpt: The gameboy pocket is much litter than the big bulky old one. The screen is better quality. It only takes two AAA batteries and they will last you about 4 hours max. The gameboy colour games are compatible with it. The game teteris is a must for all gamers and is very addictive. The pocket gameboy cost around £50 with super mario bros 1 and 2 and a carry case. There is a lot of add on's like lights, magnifier, adaptor etc. It is also very handy.Hence the name pocket.
  • Pros: Cheap to buy
  • Cons: Not colour

MY SON CAN'T PUT IT DOWN

STRAWB, Ciao

  • Excerpt: MY SON WAS GIVEN A NINTENDO GAMEBOY POCKET FOR HIS BIRTHDAY ABOUT A MONTH AGO. HE IS OBSESSED WITH IT, HE PLAYS IT MORNING, DAY AND NIGHT. I THOUGHT IT WOULD COST ME ALOT IN BATTERIES BUT HE USES THE MAINS ADAPTOR WHEN HE IS AT HOME AND IS PORTABLE WITH BATTERIES WHEN HE IS OUT. IT IS A VERY HANDY SIZE TO TRAVEL WITH, AND THERE IS A WIDE SELECTION OF GAMES AVAILABLE AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE.
  • Pros: VERY PORTABLE
  • Cons: NONE

I like this

  • Excerpt: This, in my opinion, is the best Game Boy. The Game Boy Pocket is smaller than the Game Boy Classic and Game Boy Color and it has a better screen. It's the perfect size to slip into my blazer pocket ready to get in some Pokémon training at school. It also plays all the Game Boy games (not Game Boy Color games, obviously) so it has a massive library of some of the best games ever made. This is another success for Nintendo, and it comes in a variety of fruity flavours.
  • Pros: Great games, small size
  • Cons: The Game Boy Color has taken over

  • Excerpt: Vor Jahren gehörte auch einmal, zu der Generation Pokemon. Auch ich konnte mich damals diesem Hype einfach nicht entziehen und habe sogar mit der blauen Version vom Game Boy Spiel, mir einen kleinen Game Boy Pocket zugelegt. Um einfach nicht meinen alten Klopfer von Game Boy normal auf den Tisch zu legen oder gar damit gesehen zu werden. Zum anderen war dieser Game Boy, auch wirklich ein richtig gutes Gerät, welches mir mit der Benutzung aufgefallen ist.
  • Pros: perfekt
  • Cons: technisch nicht mehr up to date

Game Boy Pocket, Piccola Console Grandi Emozioni

DaviDread, Ciao
8 October 2014
  • Summary: Uguale al suo precedessore ma con 2 anni di palestra e di dieta. Invece di 4 stilo, questo gioiellino incamera 2 mini stilo carinissime. Lo schermo è più grande, il tutto più leggero, tasti reattivi come al solito e materiali di qualità che fornisce da sempre la nintendo. Più che un successore è un upgrade del precedente.
  • Pros: Piccolo, Leggero, Leggendario
  • Cons: Non compatibile con il modello precedente, Giochi rari da trovare .

  • Summary: Buenas tardes compañeros! Aquí os vengo a hablar de otra de las consolas que tuve en mi juventud, aunque ya no sé ni dónde andará. Se trata de la Game Boy Pocket. Esta Game Boy es un poco más pequeña y manejable que su antecesora, que era más bien un pequeño ladrillaco, esta era más cómoda y ligera. La había de varios colores, la mía era roja, y tenía los botones de dirección a la izquierda a la derecha los botones A y B y abajo el botón star y select.
  • Pros: Todas
  • Cons: Ninguna

CON ELLA ME PASABA LAS HORAS

  • Summary: Estareís de acuerdo con que a muchos la Game Boy, en cualquiera de sus versiones, ha marcado nuestros tiempos de juego y personalmente fue la primera videoconsola como tal, portátil que tuve. Se la pedí a mis padres durante un montón de tiempo y al final después de tanto insistir me la trajeron por unos reyes. Es la Game Boy Pocket, que era una versión más modernizada que la Game Boy tradicional, mucho más grande, etc..
  • Pros: Diversión, muy entretenida, llevarla a cualquier sitio
  • Cons: Duración de las pilas si jugabas mucho
