    why get a GBA if you already have a DS lite? I don't see any point [​IMG].

    less buttons, smaller, more comfortable
    im thinking of getting a micro soon but i the screen puts me off somewhat
    it seems smaller than a regular gba screen.
    the sp seems really nice too.

    micro. i had to buy 3. i traded in my ds phat for one wayyy back and i loved it. had that for a while... i ended up losing it one night drinking. didn't buy one until i went on house arrest (i was going to go for a ds but ended up going back to my micro). loved it and ended up giving it to my gf (at the time). got another one but now i'm waiting to buy an m3 lite because i don't wanna blow all my cash, yet.

    micro's are extra portable. they've got great games (and lots of them, too). girls digg it. they're stylish. you don't look like a big idiot playing a big brick on the subway. what more could you ask for?

    if you don't play old gameboy games and gameboy colour games then get a micro, otherwise just get a gba sp backlit.

    I recommend an SP. That way you will have compatibility with GB and GBC games too.

    If GB/GBC games don't matter to you , get the Micro.

    Otherwise, just stay with your DS to play GBA games.

    You can always choose to emulate them (if you are posting here, I am assuming you are a pirate, so emulation is possible [​IMG])

    Depends how you use it; if you're one of those people who gets stuff gets covered in scratches get an SP for the extra screen protection (I know you can replace faceplates on the Micro but they are somewhat hard to get hold of), otherwise go for the Micro.

    Personally I've never liked the SP, but it comes down to how you use it as to which one is better for you. I love the Micro; so small, so shiney and stops me looking like a total idiot on the bus. [​IMG] The shoulder buttons aren't as hard to use as everyone makes out, and the screen size isn't a problem at all.

    [Edit] Oh, and the Micro's probably cheaper if you know where to look

    yes it's true, but you can always do the same thing on the gba sp, and i was talking about owning legit old gameboy & colour cartridges anyway, i doubt i will own a micro, those things are way too small, i already get cramps when playing my DS lite for long periods, just imagine playing on a gb micro :S
