Game Boy Micro

Not for the first time, I find myself marveling at Nintendo’s Reality Distortion Field. Those Nintendo fanboys put Apple fanatics to shame.

Take the new Game Boy Micro. It’s a Game Boy Advance SP, except it’s wider and rectangular rather than square, it doesn’t fold up, and the screen is half the size.

Were there really people saying “Man, I love the GBA SP, but I wish it was a more awkward shape to fit in a pocket, and could you make the screen a lot smaller and easier to scratch?”?

Apparently, because everyone seems to want one.
