For portable systems, many of the Nintendo GameBoys are rather large. I'm really thrilled with the GameBoy Micro, with its small size and sharp screen.

This super-slim design fits perfectly in your pocket or purse, something not easily said for the other GameBoy systems I own. The back-lit screen means the display is always quite crisp. The buttons are easy to use, the screen is quite easy to read. The volume can crank enough for you to understand what's going on.

You get a variety of faceplate designs with each purchase, to customize it. I happen to love the pink ladybug design, but friends of mine really like the blue "ammonite" display. There's also basic black and other options too.

You can play any GameBoy game with this system. You can NOT play old GameBoy and GameBoy color games on this. While some complain about this, heck, the game system is TINY. They simply couldn't fit all that other functionality into this tiny system. To be honest, if I want to play an ancient game, I'll play it on one of my other systems. I rarely want to do that. This micro system is just perfect for all of my modern gaming needs, to carry around with me. Heck, you could complain that this doesn't play DS games either. Well, sure, that's why I own a DS.

I have a SP too - but the micro is much smaller and lighter. They are each different systems, for different reasons. It's like having an electric guitar and an acoustic guitar. Sure, they're both guitars - but there are reasons to use them in different situations. I'd use a SP at home - but I'd carry a micro with me when I travel.

The Micro *comes* with a little velvet-like pouch. You stick it in the pouch, it's safe.

The purpose of this review is to give anyone having doubts about buying this, or anyone very interested in buying this, a good idea of what the system is like. If you want a simple Pros. Cons. list, simply skip to the end of this review. If you want an in-depth buying guide, read the whole thing.

First off, I'll say that this system is small--really really small. It's about as wide as the top hinge of the GBA SP, and is about as thick as your thumb-possible thinner. Is the smallness bad or good? Well, that depends on a few things. Because of the smallness, you can't play Game Boy or Game Boy Color Games. This might be a problem if you don't have a Game Boy or a Game Boy Color and want to trade in your SP or original GBA to get the Micro. If this is the case, don't get the Micro, and stop reading this now. If you have a system to play old games, the Micro might just be for you. Anyway, the smallness really isn't a problem for most people. It fits in any pocket, unlike other systems, and, although it may not look it, is incredibly easy to hold, much easier to hold than the GBA SP or the original GBA. I have big hands--bigger than most peoples, and I find it easy to hold. On the SP, the buttons were all mashed together and it was hard to find a good playing position for the SP. I have already found 5 comfortable playing positions for the Micro. Of course, because the system is so incredibly lightweight, there are many more playing positions you can use without having fatigue.

I'm sure anyone interested in the purchase will be interested to know about the screen. If you didn't already know, yes, it is considerably smaller than the screen on previous GBA systems. However, it really isn't a problem.

Nintendo has always been the landmark in the gaming world for handhels users since the late 80's.With the unrealistic success of the Nintendo Game Boy, it has been the cornersstone of the gaming world, as the most successful video game system of all time. Today, it is still growingin popularity with the versions like the Game Boy Pocket, Game Boy Color, and the Game Boy Advance, and Game Boy Advance SP editions, as well as the compatability with the Nintendo DS system to the mix. While all that has withstood the test of time, Nintendo has made another reinvention of the popular Game Boy status.

Game Boy Advane Micro Silver edition, is a mor discreet and compact version of the popular video game system. The device is so small, it is the first handheld video game system you can actually put in you pockets. The device also has a pair of customiztaion plates, so you can make your Game Boy have some style. It is well, compatible to all of the video game from Nintendo's Game Boy Advance library and the Game Boy video collections too, with games like Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Brothers 3, and Madden '06. While all that is hot, there is one big problem for longtime Game Boy fans. The device is not compatible to the earlier Game Boy games, and the Game Boy color editions either. This move is unfortunate if you can't play those games. If you do, I honestly suggest the Game Boy Advance SP version instead.

Despite a small glitch, this is a must buy for anybody who is a die hard fan of the Nintendo Game Boy. Game Boy Advance Micro, is a great compact game system for anybody to have.
