    EDIT:Made a mistake on the title. The box hasn't been opened at all, its still wrapped in plastic.

    On the city i live (which has the biggest market of America, according to the internet) i found a little video game shop. They're selling what i mentioned in the title. The thing is completely new (the box hasn't been opened, i made a mistake on the title), and they're selling it at that price ($70). They really don't know what they're selling, they just say "Oh, that's the old one. You should get the Nintendo DSi XL!! its much better!".

    I don't have a lot of money, but where i live, i could easily sell my PSP 2000 for more than $100 (They sell well here, don't know why). Do you think i should get that GBM as soon as possible?

    Depends. Those are pretty rare ( Not as much as the Mother 3 ones )
    BUT, I'd keep my PSP.

    Mmm...I dunno...I'd have to agree with AceWarHead, keep the PSP. The Famicon GBM may be rare but I mean...what are you gonna do with it?

    Keep the PSP. Find another way to come up with the money.

    In terms of capability, I'd keep the PSP, especially if it has CFW

    Having a micro is nice, and I'll admit I've been hunting for one with no success for a long while now. But it's not going to be of much use compared to a PSP even if you have a flashcart to support it

    Thank you all for your opinions. Yes, it (my PSP) has the most recent CFW (permanent) and i enjoy it a lot, Obviously, i can play GBA roms at full speed on it, which i love. I suppose i'll keep it and find another way to buy the GBM.

    Wow that sounds really cheap! Yeah I agree. Keep your PSP if you can still GBA games on it. Only get a GBM if you got money to burn.
    Besides why do you want a gameboy micro? Inspired by Todderbert? LOL

    Maybe because it'd be cool to have? :P I still have my Sega genesis in its box (opened), and though I never actually take it out to play with anymore, I sometimes just look at it, and compare it to some newer generation Consoles. When I move into my new house, I might set it somewhere as a decoration.

    Buy it. If you're a collector, then keep it. If you're not a collector, then flip it and make some money. There are collectors that will pay a premium for a sealed box.
