What a crock of shit. Honest to God, what the hell is the point? I'm so tired of seeing people buy new portable Nintendo systems only to see them upgraded and replaced a year later. Does Nintendo not have anything better to do with their time, such as produce games for these systems? I mean honestly, how many variations of the original GameBoy have there been? Fair enough, its an old system, but take for instance the GameBoy Advance: GameBoy Advance, Gameboy Advance SP, Nintendo DS (plays GBA games yes?) and now the GameBoy Micro. I personally don't own a Nintendo hand held, but constantly throwing out new sleeker, coloured, smelling, priced systems that play the same damn games is enough to put me off.

I also read that the DS was merely a filler before Nintendo released a hand-held that would rival the specs of the PSP, is this true? For you DS owners, I sure as hell hope not!

So no thanks Nintendo, I'll wait for this;

I don't see the point of GBMicro myself, other than Nintendo trying to get the "hip" crowd again.

Nintendo spent the last 3 years working on handheld technology. The main focus was to bring a whole new item to the table. This was the DS, a direct rival to the PSP (both are combined handheld/PDA devices). A smaller portion of the handheld production went into making the GBM, an attempt to knock the size back down a few notches.

The GBM may have originally been intended to rival the PSP, but when Nintendo realized the PSP was a PDA/handheld they upped the research into the DS.

Personally I wanna see a GBM that looks like an NES controller.

If they have linkup ports I see the point:

buying them for dirt cheap after they don't go over too well (or if they do, then after something else gets popular-er) and having spares on hand for four swords, ect.

I hear the screen on the GBM beats the utter shit out of the GBASP screen (in fact, I hear it's at least as good as the DS screen). My only problem with it is the size.

The GBM makes sesne in a weird way, they want childeren to play games too, but the SP kinda fixed that anyway. Referring to screen size though, I thought my little brother would have a hard time watching a VideoNow screen, but he seems to be able to focus on it, and I even tried it out for myself and didnt have a problem watching anything on it, I can imagine playing games on a screen that small.

I think it's cute, but I'm perfectly content with my GBA SP. But yeah, it seems rather pointless, especially after that statement that it probably wouldn't cost any less than the GBA and GBA SP did.

If it's cheap enough, and has the link port or an easily adaptable kind of wireless link that works the same, I'm sure it will do fine.

I might buy it as a fashionable belt buckle. But for playing games, I'll stick with my normal GBA.

The only good things I see about the Micro are the ability to control how bright the screen is and the custom faceplates. Depending on how the plates work, that would mean Nintendo would only have to put out one color Micro. Otherwise, it just seems like Nintendo's got money to burn. I don't see the logic in releasing it, GBA as it is now is almost done digging its' grave.

Something I don't get, though: how is shrinking the screen supposed to work? Or are they referring to all that excess black outline around the LCD itself?

No, smaller screen = smaller pixels at the same resolution = sharper looking graphics. I'm glad they're releasing it - makes TG seem worth doing =P

I personally would get a GBM if its a nice price, as I think the smaller design could be cool! and it would be a handy thing to have on the bus and it wouldn't take up a whole pocket like the gba does. the sp is about pocket sized as is..

I'm gonna have to choose between this and an SP as my GBA is kinda screwed now. So if this turns out to be any good then maybe I'll get one. The screen does look rather small though...
