    Hi, I just received my gb micro and I was wondering what cases do you guys have or use. The sleeve that comes with it doesn't seem to offer much protection for transport... I just bought from eBay a case that is said to be rare and limited and given to the few who preordered the gbmicro. Image below:

    it's kinda dull, I was wondering if there were prettier cases out there, or any 20th anniversary special edition case that could match with my gbmicro.

    Thank you for your feedback!

    The KeysFactory one's look pretty sweet as far as cases for the micro go.

    I like the black pouch that comes with it though [​IMG]

    I ended up gettng a DS case. It is a small aluminum case with a clear window. I am able to fit my GBA micro, the charger, and a couple of games in the case. Very protective and nothing slides around.

    It looks similiar to this one, but mine has a window. Got it at gamestop for $8 USD.

    i got a hori one off playasia, its black nylon, with a zipper and a carrabeener (Sp?) its a great case, that only fits a gbm and an extra game/battery. i still prefer the sock though.

    I've tried quite a few pouches/cases, but they're all too bulky so I just use the little gbm socks.

    i use the socks too. with the interchangeable faceplates its more than enough to keep it looking nice and unscratched.

    Well everybody seems to like the sock better, I'll tell you which I prefer when I receive my case...

    In the meantime I think I'll try to make a 20th anniversary sock, shouldn't be too hard to do (with the help of my wife [​IMG])

    I thought the included sock was kind of lame and oversized, and at about $40 for the system, I don't really mind it getting a bit banged up in my pocket. I think those iPod sock cases look nice though... They stretch to fit and are just aesthetically pleasing. Gotta find a knockoff brand to get one, unless you feel like paying some huge premium for Apple branded ones.

    They're not that expensive since you're actually getting a couple of them [​IMG]

    It's a sock, so I'm not seeing how it can be oversized... What is the material too thick?
    unless you're thinking of the bag that comes with micro. that's pretty lame and oversized.

    The thing that comes with the micro isn't really a sock.
    It's like a drawstring pouch, so the inside is all loose. The material isn't exactly thick or thin, but it does the job just fine.
    The "sock" that he's talking about is the bag that you're thinking of

    Yeah, I figured that's what everyone was talking about. Was there some official GBM sock? All I got with mine was that uggo bag that I quickly put to use for other purposes. I did get the package that came out later with no extra faceplates, though.
