The Gameboy player arrived this morning and this has to be one of the coolest console accessories ever. It adds about an inch in height to the GameCube and looks a little out of place due to the colour difference, but this thing can play Gameboy, Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance games. In honesty, I'd probably never have played many of my Gameboy games again because it meant having to play them on a tiny little screen, but not any more. Playing them on the TV is much better and the graphics scale up well too. Plus, the sound is actually better since it's being played through the TV. Maybe worth pointing out that this isn't an emulator either, this thing basically has GBA hardware built into it.
I have one of those things as well, but I never made much use of it actually. I don't know why, but I just always preferred playing the games on their handheld.
It's a good buy if you don't own a GBA or Gameboy colour though.
Well chuffed with this. Just a shame my Pokemon Silver game save battery has run out because I'd love to play through it again. I should get around to replacing the battery some time.
It's really easy to do, trust me.
Just get one of those flat Lithium batteries, unscrew the back, carefully remove the old battery and replace it with the new one. Takes five minutes and I had a lot of fun replaying the game right after.
