"Equipian"

..Equipment for Life.. since 2005.. Welcome to Equipian, our previews, views and reviews! enjoy!

it's a small world after all...

just on the heels of the nano, Nintendo comes out with another small wonder today. the gameboy micro! it was announced earlier this year, and released in japan today. the micro comes in 4 basic colors and a "famicom" original version. it basically looks like the Famicom controller (first generation nintendo) found in Asia. The micro has exchangeable faceplates and will allow many more variations in the future. it can play all the gameboy advance games, and has a tiny backlit screen. the controls include the basic D pad and an A+B button, L+R trigger buttons on top and the usual "Select + Start" buttons. there's a 3/4 inch headphone jack, and contrast adjustment as well. the micro looks great, but one problem... it's a gaming device. i think Sony was smart in making the PSP compact enough to take around and sport a large wide screen. the Micro on the other hand might make gaming difficult with such a small screen. perhaps light gamers will find it nice to have around, and most handheld games are not meant to be played for long periods anyway. the smartest thing nintendo did was to make all the games backwards compatible. this should be a hit this Christmas, especially at 99USD.
