Yes, please. A Gameboy with a proper backlit screen would be fantastic.

If it's backlit, I'm in. Plus, I've already had some of my old cartridges die on me.

The GBA Micro was a thing you know.

Every Gameboy only ever took two batteries(this includes the Advance). I think you're confusing it for the Sega Game Gear, which still only needed six(per day).

The original Gameboy required 4 AA batteries. Subsequent models required less or AAA batteries instead (in the case of the Pocket).

If this new, modern-day Game Boy includes an option of having a lit screen, I'm all for it. Smile

Never hopped onto the whole NES/SNES Classic fad because I could easily emulate just about any game from those consoles on PC. This definitely has me intrigued though since I don't have any handhelds at the moment and I can use physical buttons unlike a mobile emulator. Depending on the price I may buy one.

ah the gameboy, when mobile gaming was still short enough to enjoy on the fly, before the deluge of text messaging was added in.

How long until Tumblr attacks Nintendo for reviving that name? Laughing
