Re: Should I?

Alright, so I found this. Cheaper (used) than the Micro. I do really hate the color, but I'm willing to sacrifice to get the SP.

Should I go for it or what? There's a Graphite on there, but it's $44.95 plus shipping, so yeah.

edit: I forgot that I could basically talk down the pawn shop to sell me the Micro for at least $35, if not $30. I'm probably just gonna end up buying that, unless I can find a cheap SP. It looks like all the better backlit ones are kinda steep, at least in comparison to what I could get for the Micro.

Please refrain from using "gay" as an adjective. It suggests that you're immature.

I have a GBA SP2 in the pearl blue and it's worth it. The lighting is equivalent to an NDS or a GBM.

The Game Boy Micros are $35 and the GBA SPs are $40 at Gamestop right now. Personally, I got 2 game boy micros off ebay for less than $30, both came with games and cases for the system. Did not realize the backlit SPs were going for $50 these days.

I have both and use both regularly. I take the Micro to work and play it during lunch. When I get home, I opt for the bigger screen and play the SP 101.

The Gamestops near me have Micros for $30, at least last time I was there.

The majority of the time gay is used, it's used as an adjective. Otherwise it's used as a noun, and then it sounds about ten times more offensive. Either way, it was a great adjective to describe it. Gay is a word, whether people like it or not. Also, come to think of it, it could probably be used as a verb.

It is offensive to use it in that pejorative manner because it implies that all things gay are bad. Unless you are using it to describe something as cheerful or a person as homosexual, then don't.

Didn't we already have this discussion about using words like that?
Also, get a gamecube gameboy player. I prefer it over anything else.

My first thread with an argument in it! I feel so... proud. *sniff*

Anyways, I'm actually headin' back to my hometown on Wednesday, and the Gamestops we have in the mall there both carry GBA SPs (according to the website). Should I wait 'til then to get an SP or should I buy online?

Well, the GBA SPs are $40 at both Gamestops. It also doesn't tell you which color you're gonna get and whether or not it'll be the 101 or not. :(
