The Game Boy - From Ancient History to Fashion Accessory! (pg. 2)

The Nintendo Gameboy has been the #1 portable video game system for 17 years now. It has gone from being a clunky black and white monstrosity to the stylilshly-slim Game Boy Advance SP. Here's our look at the modern Game Boys, starting with 2001's Game Boy Advance!

2001 - The Game Boy Advance

The Nintendo Game Boy Advance. The next generation of Game Boy was the Game Boy Advance. It was in full color with stereo sound and as much computer power as the original NASA Space Shuttle! It had a bigger screen, better graphics and more buttons, but could still play all the old Game Boy Color games. You could even plug one into your Gamecube as a controller. Unfortunately, the screen was too dark to see games easily.

2003 - The Game Boy Advance SP

The Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP. The Game Boy Advance SP came out only two years after the Game Boy Advance and it was a huge upgrade! The flip-top design keeps the screen safe from scratches, it uses a rechargeable 30-hour power supply to save $$$ on batteries and, best of all, the screen is backlit so all the games are easy to see. The GBA SP quickly came out with different color models for stylin' gamers and is now the best handheld gaming system in the world!

2005 - The Game Boy Micro

The Nintendo Game Boy Micro. The smallest Game Boy ever was released on October 2, 2005. This tiny game system is so small you can slip it into your back pocket and forget it's there! It plays GBA games and has a super-bright screen to bring your games to life even brighter than on the GBA SP. But, the best thing about the Game Boy Micro is that it comes in different colors and has interchangeable faceplates so you can give yours the look you want!

2006 - The Game Boy Advance Goes Pink!

The Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP. On March 27, 2006 a new Game Boy Advance SP was released. This new system has an upgraded screen and all the power of the normal GBA SP, but in an awesome Pearl Pink color! Not only is it a wickedly stylish accessory that you can take anywhere, it also plays nearly a thousand video games, movies and more. For the gamer on the go who wants something that looks great, the new Pearl Pink Game Boy Advance SP is the way to go!
