Back during the Game Boy Advance era, I didn’t managed to get any of the variations of the consoles. Not only it was expensive (compared to my allowance) but... well, yep, only because of that. I wasn’t exactly rich.
Anyway, early in its life cycle, I had already resigned myself to the idea of not having one. No one else at school had one, so I didn’t feel peer-pressured to get one nor ostracized for not having one...
That thing was an improvement on every aspect of the original (except for the earphones, but nobody used earphones on their GBs back then anyway): Rechargable battery (vs 2 expendable AAs), a more compact (literally pocket-able) and self-protected design, and a illuminated screen. It was like a laptop, or one of these fancy Cell-phones AND NINTENDO KNEW IT.
Here history turns the page and we get the Nintendo DS. It could be literally the Toriyama-esque fusion of both the OG GBA and the SP, with the clamshell design of the latter, and the buttons-on-the-side-of-the-screen of the former... and, of course, the ability to play GBA games, additionally to it’s own ones.
Look at those lines, that finesse, that superior and pixel-crisp back-lit screen, that tiny size!!!
I know That’s Just My Opinion, Man™, but, compared with the DS, the Gameboy Micro is miles ahead the (original) DS and is pound-by-pound, the most cool handheld Nintendo has made.
