I am going to buy a Game Boy soon but I can't decide which one to buy.The GBA Micro looks quite good but I am worried that the smaller screen will hurt my eyes.However, the GBA SP has a vertical shape so playing it for long periods of time will hurt wrists.I don't mind missing headphone jack or compability backward.So can anyone help me with this problem?

Gameboy micro looks cooler, but has more problems with it, such as the screen harbouring much more dust than normal.

SP looks crapper but is better in that respect. Also, you can't link up with others with the Micro, so you won't be able to trade or battle with others (or yourself if you have XD or colleseum.)

When you said 'screen harbouring much more dust',do you mean GBA Micro 'catches' dust more easily under its faceplates?Since I am old fashioned(or whatever you call it),I don't trade,link and etc.Just solo.

Yup. My screen is basically impossible to see through, and I use my DS to play everything now. It's a shame, because they look so cool.

Well gba micro didnt sell very good so I say you get GBA SP

They made the wii because of the low sales the gba micro brang.

And If u have a little bit more money I suggest you get a DS.

Or If you have a gamecube you should get the gameboy player for the gamecube.

Yes, but that requires taking it to pieces, and maybe not beinng able to refix it. You sound like you want one of those prettty badly, if you are that intent, just get one of those.

They made the Wii because, the next-generation of gaming was about to begin, they would look stupid, if their were an xbox 360, playstation 3, and still a gamecube :)
