    Game boy shape is ok

    but a Classic GBA might have been a better pick for the shape

    l and r are in the wrong place, making almost any gba game that uses l and r a chore to play

    I hate it when a company announces a new product but only give vague information about the specs that matter, like what is the frickin resolution of the screen and what type of panel technology is used? But no, they try to conceal those specs because they are afraid their products will be badly received. If you release crap, own frickin up to it!

    Lmao, if they did that it wouldn't even be able to play legit cartridges, just like the NES classic.

    I also fail to see the sense of this. Any GBA also plays GB and GBC. What's the use of this?

    Gimme the case and put a raspi in there with retropie, now that's something. But this? Nonsense.

    Nintendo just needs to re-release the gameboy micro but with a micro-usb/C charging port. It'll be as big as the miniNES

    If those upper buttons are the L and R buttons.....good God why didn't they just put L and R in the back?

    Though those could not be the L and R buttons so if so thats good.

    The screen and battery here are probably better than the screen and batteries in a GBA. But I kind of agree that's a very limited advantage compared to the drawbacks (price, no trigger buttons, still using cartridges...).

    Speaking of which is there already any MOD to make it play more than just the Installed games?
