Any friends hearing i'm buying a new gameboy for nostalgic purposes thought i was buying too much on impulse, i already had an old gameboy advance -- yes, it was an impulse buy but not unwise.
Its fairly hard to judge from an internet picture, but once i got it i was relieved to find it was not a soft pink (which i have many critisms for) but just right. The face plates idea is genius, the dreaded feeling when you scatch your screen is gone for you can buy a new one.
The screen is great quality, and has made me enjoy game much more.
The only setbacks is its big incompatiablity with many things the old one was. For instance older games (though i knew that before i got it) and link cables etc.
But this is barely a setback considering i won't have to carry around a big one while getting as close to the window seat on trains as possible due to no backlight. Hoorah!
