Nintendo still haven't topped the GBA SP for elegance and pocketability. The DS Lite came close.
game boy advance micro was pretty much perfect imo. Great screen, the size really suited the resolution. excellent battery life & the size!
Nah, the backlit SP still wins. The micro was just too small to play at arms length.
That's the one Game Boy I've never had my hands on. I tried to get one at the time, but ended up with a couple of front light jobbies.

How much better is the backlite?

Edit: SP can't win for me as it gave / would still give me hand cramps, proper claw type.

I can't see them pulling this one off. Nintendo have made so many bad hardware decisions but this one is just confusing.
Pull what off? As has been said, it's to pick up some of the Fisher Price market that the 3DS lost. Nothing more or less.

I really wanted to believe that C&VG prank too. :lol: Even though you can see the Sellotape. :palm:

The backlit version has the same screen quality as the micro, only bigger.

This is to the 3DS what the Wii Mini is to the regular Wii. Gimped in terms of features, ugly as ****, not that much cheaper and nobody really wants it.

Nintendo really should look into making a phone.

Another confused grown up. :roll: Does he fill ten minutes talking about it?

I love how arstech reckons Nintendo didn't release their amazing idea (a tablet with a joypad) because it would be too revolutionary.

You can turn the 3D off on a 3DS.

Yes. If I could keep only one games console, it would be a SNES. Quite recently got an sd2snes. One of the best items I have ever bought. Put a single SD card in it holding every game ever dumped. Yarr.
