Design and specifications

It is smaller than previous Game Boy systems. Compared to the iPod mini it is slightly bigger and about two-thirds the weight.

Software

The Game Boy Micro is compatible with all Game Boy Advance cartridges, including Game Boy Advance Video cartridges. Unlike the Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Advance SP, however, the Game Boy Micro does not support games made for the original Game Boy or Game Boy Color. The e-Reader card series is also officially incompatible because although the accessory can fit, the design of the e-Reader makes the "Select" and "Start" buttons difficult to access during gameplay. Its size and shape in relation to the system also make it awkward to hold. This can be avoided by removing the e-Reader from the cartridge slot after the game has loaded.

Reception

Praise

The Game Boy Micro's backlit screen, which is superior to the original Game Boy Advance SP's (a later remodel added a similar high quality screen to SP systems), has been praised for its visibility.[18] Due to a finer dot pitch, the screen is more evenly lit, and the brightness is adjustable. The smaller dot pitch has also improved the apparent sharpness of the display. Backlights are lights that are attached to LCD displays so that they can be seen at night. ... Dot pitch (sometimes called line pitch or phosphor pitch) is a specification for a computer display that describes the distance between phosphor dots (sub-pixels) or LCD cells of the same color on the inside of a display screen. ...


The removable faceplates have also been praised because they, "...allow for personalization and protect the high-resolution backlit screen."[18]


Criticism

The Game Boy Micro relies heavily on proprietary (non-standard) ports because of its small size. For example, the game link port on the Game Boy Micro differs from either of those that belong to the Game Boy Advance SP, and it is not compatible with the Game Boy Advance SP's functions without special cables. While the headphone jack port has been restored, gamers must buy two link cables (Game Boy Micro to Game Boy Micro and Game Boy Micro to Game Boy Advance) to restore full multiplayer functionality. The Nintendo.com store lists the two cables at US$9.95 and US$7.95 respectively. Also, the GameCube-Game Boy Advance cable does not work with the Game Boy Micro. However, a hack has been found to restore this functionality.[19] The Game Boy Advance SP ), released in February 2003, is an upgraded version of Nintendos Game Boy Advance. ... USD redirects here. ... Nintendo Gamecube Game Boy Advance Cable The Nintendo GameCube-Game Boy Advance Cable is a cable used to connect the Nintendo GameCube (GCN) and the Game Boy Advance (GBA) to trade information. ...


Additionally, the shrunken power port means that the power adapter is not interchangeable with that of the other versions of the Game Boy Advance family or Nintendo DS. Consumer conversion to proprietary accessories is an idea that is no different from any other Game Boy release, as buyers generally had to upgrade their accessories along with the new unit for the releases of Game Boy Pocket, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance. The Game Boy ) line is a line of battery-powered handheld game consoles sold by Nintendo. ... The Game Boy Color , shortened to GBC) is Nintendos successor to the Game Boy and was released on October 21, 1998 in Japan and in November of 1998 in the United States and 1999 in Europe. ...


Nintendo itself has admitted that Game Boy Micro sales did not meet its expectations, commenting it "failed to explain to consumers its unique value."[20]

IGN: Game Boy Micro (921 words)
There isn't a battery light, but the Micro does the SP and GBA one better on that -- the Select and Start buttons light up in two-tone colors, glowing at start-up (or while plugged in) with a blue light to show when there's enough charge and going red when the system is almost dead.
This is one of the sort of hidden surprises with the GB Micro, and even though it's an advertised feature (the package even comes with three faceplates), it kind of catches you off-guard when you first pry at the plate and it comes off.
The GB Micro isn't exactly the ideal way to enjoy Game Boy Advance games, but don't misjudge it by its size.
Game Boy Micro - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1935 words)
Consumer conversion to proprietary accessories is an idea that is no different from any other Game Boy release, as buyers generally had to upgrade their accessories along with the new unit for the releases of Game Boy Pocket, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance.
At $99, the Game Boy Micro is the same price as a Nintendo GameCube (as of the 2005 holiday, with a free copy of Mario Party 7 and an extra controller), $20 more expensive than the backlit and original Game Boy Advance SP and $30 cheaper than the more functional and sophisticated Nintendo DS.
The Game Boy Micro's backlit screen, which is superior to the Game Boy Advance SP's, has been praised for its visibility.
