Nostalgia purposes maybe?
It sure looks the part. I hope it's using real hardware and not emulation, they're not normally known for using real hardware.
Do those backlit GB/GBC mods still use a gutted SP 101 backlit screen?
edit: gotta be honest that image doesn't look backlit to me, maybe the highlights at the bottom of the screen are leading me to believe its a front light, lol
I fail to see how my comment is smarmy. It is a fact that I have seen on multiple occasions Gameboy Colors at yard sales for $5. This device performs the exact same function in the same form-factor except that it has a backlight.
I also fail to see what Linux has to do with anything.
So I assume it's a 1:1 hardware clone, or close to it?
tbh it kinda looks like its able to fit a gba sp game. I would like if they added it
$100 seems high considering it has no link cable support.
Wrong the screen ratio is not correct its squashed horizontally
But that's also a hardware clone with link cable support.
This is neat... but expensive. It also has fewer features than you would expect for the price. You can even find GBA clones that play games off of memory cards for that kind of money!
With that said, the aluminum body is a nice touch. I've never seen a clone console made with aluminum. Great... now I kinda have myself wanting one.
looks cool but for that price you can get an authentic gameboy light.
Give the original GBA with backlit display, lithium rechargable battery, USB-C port for charging and perhaps I'll consider a purchase.
GB and GBC games alone are not worth it for me xD
The closest we'll have to a western release of the Game Boy Light
Not worth the 100 bucks. It looks nice but thats it.I would rather buy an used one for 30 if i ever need my nostalgia fix. Also getting gbc games that still have a working battery can be risky.
you mean impossible right? xD by this time all baterys are dead, i know all my gb games have dead baterys :S
Well my old pokemon saphire has a dead battery for 5 years now and thats a game boy advance game so yeah you are probably right. I just really don't see a point to this 100 bucks game boy.
Gb boy has the wrong screen aspect ratio, that kills it for me! Apart from that, yeah it's cheap and ok.
This new one is a high end item, that will hopefully be great.

gbc can only be really backlight when you put in a sp screen yeah, the adaptor cable alone is like $30 or $40 lol. Plus the screen size is a little smaller, but it still looks really good.
I mean...you can just...replace the batteries? They're incredibly cheap and incredibly easy to replace, just pop the cartridge open, pull the dead battery carefully from the tab, place new battery in and done. At worst you might have to solder the tab that holds the battery in place back on if you break it, but otherwise it's not like it's the hardest thing in the world.
Please solder and replace them properly and don't just use tape!
get tabbed batteries
Electrical tape works fine enough if you're a newbie or never soldered anything before, I've got 4 or so GBC games with battery replacements that I did 3 or 4 years ago that use tape and they still work just fine. Soldering is more secure, of course, and probably the better option, but electrical tape is fine too.
