    Where is the best place to buy a gameboy micro at? I want either the black one or the Famicom. I want it new and not over priced.


    What would be the best flash card to use for it. Not playing pokemon games just normal games like FFTA and Golden Sun 1 + 2.

    Regarding the flashcard, since you couldn't be bothered to read any of the several (dozen) threads below this one, the best one is the EZ Flash IV Deluxe.

    You can probably find a new one at Amazon, I'm assuming. Although I think Micros are harder to come by than GBA SD or the original version. I'd stick the SD, that's what I use.

    Off topic, but is it called an SD? My brain's been farting while writing this so I could be screwing up.

    If you just want the Micro for its screen, I'd go with the second (backlit) GBASP model, instead. Same screen as the Micro, only bigger.

    From a quick eBay search, it would seem the Famicom/20th Anniversary style is quite pricey, used or new... but especially new, heh. So glad I picked one of these up back when they were in stores; found mine at a Zellers for $50, lol. I love the 20th Anniversary GBMicro, personally... it has a great look to it.

    I got a black GBM practically new for 50AU! Plus an accessory kit off eBay. Was well worth it.

    I recently sold a new GBA Micro Famicom ed. on Ebay for US$100 (I bought a couple when they were cheap on PlayAsia). So if you are not willing to pay close to that, you might be priced out of the market... No one is going to give one away to you for less than the going rate...

    Few months ago I was lucky enough to find a pretty much as-new Pink GBMicro for £12 incl. P&P which I still play on. I Googled 'Gameboy Micro for sale forum' and found the bargain on a UK based electronics site. However my faceplate is a little scratched now and I cannot find ANYWHERE which has a replacement.

    At the time I purchased a Supercard Micro-SD from DX but unfortunately it broke after less than a day, it wasn't being recognised by anything.

    As a replacement I bought the EZ-Flash IV which takes Mini-SD's. I used a Micro -> Mini SD adapter and it is fantastic. Hard to fault. It is easy to use and skinnable.

    You can buy a charger for $4 from DealExtreme. That's what I did when I bought my first GBM for $20 when the seller didn't have a charger. The next one I got from GameStop for $30. You can still buy new face plates from Nintendo's website.

    bro. i just created an account to answer this haha.

    i live in California, USA.

    I got me a famicom gameboy micro at gamestop yesterday for 69.99 brand new.


    they had a used one for 29.99 black.

    i called hella gamestops and they all didnt have any. and they changed the SKU? for it because they dont carry it..so its harder for them to do a "Search" and tell u of nearby gamestops that might have em.

    they log them into their registry as just gameboy advances...or something.

    but yeha. i found mine just yesterday. have u had any luck? trust me. the famicom version is worth waiting for.

    the mother 3 version looks cool too.
