Yea, im looking to buy one. A NEW one from like Target. But cant find it online.
I bought mine online, but I've seen some in my BestBuy and GameStop before.
Shouldn't be too hard to find.
Gameboy Micro on Amazon
Nowhere on Target. Im looking for somewhere in stores/in real life. Meaning im not going to buy it online.
Good luck but you might want to re-think that choice. It was discontinued a long time ago and has been sold off cheap in bargain bins since mid 2006, if the US is like the UK there are no brand-new ones left in the high street at all. If you really want to avoid online stores consider preowned consoles, there's some really good quality Micros floating around out there that people brought but never/hardly used. If you're worried about buyer protection try websites of big chain stores rather than small marketplaces.
Thanks. I guess no Micro for me..
Look at ebay. I that play-asia.com has purple and special anniversary edition micros (this was a month ago). I bought a new micro last month from ebay but the seller has stopped selling them.
no, no, no, i don't sell my brand new GBA Micro Famicom edition!
I got an almost brand new micro from ebay for like $40, it was awesome.
get over your fear of buying online, use something like a creditcard or paypal where you can be protected, and don't buy from shady shops or from ebay ppl with 0 feedback.
Or buy a pre-paid Visa card from a gas station that you can load up with the money to purchase online.
I remember reading somewhere most identity theft from credit cards is from skimming, not online.
Is it wrong that I still contemplate picking up a micro simply to play KH:CoM on the go?
Probably hard to find anymore. Nintendo has implied it's discontinued, but never gave a specific date or announcement when it happened (like with the original Xbox).
Buy a micro from there online. Those are Japanese editions. Around $70US. Service is very very good (from what I've heard).
I just bough a micro from Play-Asia. Be warned that shipping is another $10, making the deal not quite as good.
I got one here a few months ago:
They were on clearance for less in US stores, but are long gone at this point.
Amazon UK still have some bright metallic pink ones going for £40, (or £32 from the marketplace), and have one green at £70 which I assume is the last one. They don't ship overseas but might be of interest to someone.
I just picked mine up used for $35 at Gamestop. Huzzah for portable Kingdom Hearts!
A store by me called Video Palace(a very excellent mom and pop video game store, where I do all my shopping) just had a few new and used ones. So look around for stores like that by you. You probably have one or two of them.
Play-Asia has a selection of colours available ... they are all around $69 USD.
Never mind...it was something else....delete this post...
Gameboy Micro is something I once had and it failed (but got it from someone who never used it but once but had no warranty and it failed...Fami one.)
I just re-bought one today after doing some research. It seems there is a gold mine price for the Micro at one of the usually most ripoff places around -- Gamestop. They sell them used for $35. ONLINE they'll go from like $50-70+ used and NEW is around the $90-100 mark and a bit more for the Famicom version.
I got lucky and called them on a whim after getting depressed over the pricing and got lucky, real lucky. I found a silver/black unit complete in the box that I just bagged and it's quite sweet. I formerly also had the NES style old SP but that front lit screen was such a hard on the eyes wash I got rid of it for another of the MICRO units and it's worth it. It's funny how even though the screen is like 2" that it's still so clear even the smallest details aren't hosed.
