Although I realise it came out around a year before the colour...

Am I the only one that wishes Nintendo had released the game boy light around the globe and not just Japan..

I'd love one, but they're pricey unless your in Japan on holiday or something and find one!

But I own 2 different game boy's, a grey one (original) and a yellow one.

Loved the system still do, just wish i had the patience to play them without a light...like other people do.

Though I don't agree putting an sp light in the original...it messes with the originality of the system!

I never had a GameBoy back in the day.  I got an Atari Lynx instead but I did play with my aunt's GB.  Primarily, I played Tetris which was the killer app for the handheld.  :)

See i got the Atari lynx with about 16 games (14 of which were boxed might I add :p haha) and I really like it, though I can understand why it didn't break through over the game boy with its size and battery consumption (hell I play it on a power cord while watching tv) even though looking back it may not have seemed like a serious competitor it really could have been.

I recently found my old Gameboy Advance which i had modded back in the day to run NES roms.
It has about 50 nes games on one cart! Love that thing!
When the original Gameboy came out I was too poor to afford one

I have a Gameboy pocket from when I was younger. Recently I managed to find my pokemon games again (including yellow!).
