It's Official: Pokemon love the Micro!
Entertainment , Technology

    "Game Boy micro measures just 4 inches wide, 2 inches long and 0.7 inches thin. It weighs 2.8 ounces, about the weight of 80 paper clips." - Nintendo Press Release

    Nintendo released more information today about its creepy, premie-birth handheld the Game Boy Micro (apparently named after Nintendo's latest console market share). After years of trying, they have finally gotten the Game Boy to weigh the same as 80 paper clips, which resulted in Microsoft buying the copyright on things that weigh more than 80 paper clips but less than 97 thumbtacks. Sony basically ignored the news and opted to buy a portion of Saturn with its PSP returns.

    Along with an MSRP of $99.99 (the same price as the Gamecube, mind you) Nintendo also states that:

    The edgy hardware will come in both silver and black versions, each with three removable, fun faceplates so users can personalize their Micro depending on their mood.

    WAIT!!.OMGZ!!1!!1 Please make one with FLAMES (and/or skulls)!!!

    The black Game Boy micro will include one faceplate with a "Flame" design...

    !!!!!!! GGGGGGAALAKJLJKL!!! Now only if it had sick, like totally l337 blue neon lig...

    ...and Start/Select buttons that glow with the cool, neon-like blue found on many cell phones.

    BLLLARRRGG!!1!!1!SHIFT+1!! Oh thank you Nintendo GODS. I've finally found something to replace that gaping void since calculator watches went out of style. Man, Nintendo you truly are GAMERZ! ROxXoR! Crap, be right back, my Nintendog is wiping his ass all over the screen.
