    The DS can't play GB and GBC games, can it?

    I saw that vid. I'd buy one. My only issue is the screen overhangs when folded just a bit.

    its hideously... cool

    So I got a grip for my SP, and I really like it but I *still* think I prefer my modded AGB with 101 screen. something about the design just keeps resonating with me

    and Im always tempted to be on the lookout for a cheap micro, but cheap micros dont exist and I'm afraid I'll levitate back towards my AGB

    The micro is cool just for the portability and the super sharp screen, but it really isn't the most practical, it's way too small and not designed for adult hands. I used to want one, but I realized the AGB is a much better form factor, it's perfect in terms of comfort.

    afaik there is a gbc emulator for gba so if you buy an gba advance flashcard you can just insert the emulator ans rooms into it :P, but yeah no physical original cartridges gb/gbc games can be played but you can with an R4/gba flashcard.

    Well then you can't play GB and GBC games with a DS or DSlite, nor can you link up for multiplayer or connect to the Gamecube for games that made use of that feature. There are genuine good reasons why that looks appealing and practical.

    That's an incredible mod. He didn't even divert too much from OEM parts! :D

    It's a great mod, but it should definitely now get an lithium ion battery mod. And, it'd be really cool if there is extra space in the back now to store a usb charging cable.

    Completely different feel in the hands than the AGB-001.

    They don't have any native gb or gbc support, but with Goomba it ain't bad.

    gomba or just a random gbc emulator on an r4 and more on dslite is the way to go imo, the only thing you miss is link cable and gc-gba connection, and the titles that use things like this that people would use nowadays is a very small thing.
