    Why in all my time at gbatemp have a never heard one person even so much as mention the gameboy camera.
    All I could find was the kooky german advertisment here its like everybody is treating it as a dirty little secret. The uk advertisment was way better anybody remember it?


    So who had one?

    I had a red one with a red GB pocket. NO printer [​IMG]

    OMG!!!! The gameboy camera, I had a blue one!!!!
    That brings back memories [​IMG]

    As to why noone talks about it.. Well it's been a while!
    And it's now useless, my phone can do better photos and more editing than the GBCam. (and in color [​IMG] Yeah I never had a GBColor.. Missed 2 Zeldas because of that :'( )

    I got a GBC for Christmas(I think it was in 2000) and I got Pokemon Yellow([​IMG] ) and a Red gameboy camera. The minigames were fun, I think one was a clone of a Game and Watch game [​IMG] (The game was juggling by the way).

    I had a clear-purple one and a yellow Pokemon printer. [​IMG] I love that thing, personal print club. [​IMG] The spaceship mini-game (too lazy to google) used to always crack me up when a random friend is the boss.

    I found out if you stayed in the middle on that game and just kept firing you could not lose.

    Gotta cam and printer. Printer doesn't work so hot, I guess the thermal paper is old or something. Anybody know of a cheap paper source? The kids would love the stickers, even though they never were very dark as I remember.

    I always wanted one of these, but my mom would never buy one for me. I think I saw some of these used at GameStop the other day.

    Wasn't the American Gameboy Camera commercial a Candid Camera spoof?
    "Smile! You're on Gameboy Camera!" or something like that.
