    anyone know where i can get a Gameboy Micro still?
    it may not have been much of a hit,
    but the design reminds me of the Original Gameboy but better xD .
    if only the GBA SP had a headphone jack ... then i wouldn't be asking for one of these would i [​IMG]

    and while im here,
    any recommended GBA flashcarts that are compatible with all models of the GBA series [GBA, GBA SP, GBA Micro]?
    and one with the best compatibility . i don't expect to use it with the NDS, so no worries about DS compatibility.

    EZ-Flash IV was recommended as a GBA Flashcart to me before, so I might go with that .
    the GameBoy Micro... hmm... i wonder if they ship to Canada...

    Why don't you buy the adapter for the SP?

    Because Nintendo Europe no longer has neither of these in stock to sell:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Nintendo North America only has the adapter on the bottom. You need both to connect a micro to a GBA/SP.

    Another recommendation for the EZ-Flash IV, I use a MiniSD to MicroSD adapter.

    I see your in canada, but if you have a GameStop it is the best choice. I picked up 2 Micro's for $35 a peice which beats ebays $50+

    how? i am puzzled by that, the original gameboy has a completely different design from the micro.

    ^that .
    the button layout looks better [my opinion], and it looks more portable .
