This is exactly as I remembered, and has given me a new chance to play the games I loved. It's lightweight and simple and very easy to use. The games, which must be purchased separately, slip into the slot in the back. There is an earphone jack if the music or sound is bothersome to others around.Read full review...

Portable Durability

The best of the best. Portability without sacrificing quality. The MGB-001 is one of Nintendo's greatest inventions. The sole issue is that they did not update it with a backlit color screen.

However if you're handy with waay too much spare time you can use an old GBA:SP and "update" the MGB-001 with same said feature, the sole issue then becoming the lack of durability of the screen.

You really can throw these across a room, or drop them down a long flight of concrete stairs, pick them up and continue playing on them. Game will probably freeze, but compared to the gba:sp or any DS system (which would utterly shatter) I think a frozen game (power off then back on to fix) is the least of your worries.

Alternately you could backlight and bivert the MGB-001.. I hear nonfinite electronics will even do that for you for relatively cheap.

Congratulations on your purchase or if you haven't bought this yet, BUY IT!!!

Nintendo Game Boy Pocket

Any real gamer would love to own this collector's item. It is an old school gameboy that plays all of the original gameboy games. No collection is complete without it. It is also an excellent starter console for younger kids. I would rather have my nieces and nephews learn how to take care of an older, durable, game boy than a two or three hundred dollar Nintendo DS.Read full review...

A must for any serious collector

When decided to collect all of the Game-boy series, a little research told me I HAD to get the Japanese version of the Pocket.
Because it was the first of the revolution.

The original Gameboy was revolutionary to personal gaming, but it was bulky, heavy and cumbersome. The graphics made progress, but ore importantly was now SMALL! So small you could fit it in your pocket (I wonder how it got it's name?) and take it anywhere with you without the need for a huge man-purse.

As with all these early tech pieces, the home countries got them first; Japan. In this case there was uproar; they had removed the battery light!
That's how you spot a genuine ver.1 Pocket, it has no LED in the top left of the screen.
So around a year later the new version had the light added.

I ordered this from Japan. Why? Because these were primarily sold there and the global reach of EBay makes it far more viable to buy an item from a location where it's common.

Will I use this? Probably not.
Will I treasure it secretly and smugly because it's a bit rare in a subtle way? Apso-bloody-lutely.
