Is it true? Is the GBA on the decline? According to Electronic gaming Monthly, its all downhill from here. When will the next gen Game Boy come? Will it? The micro is nothing big, or is the Game Boy nothing big? Last game I bought on GBA was WarioWare: Twisted. (Very fun, BTW) I guess we'll just wait for the Revolition come out, right?

It wouldn't surprise me, to be honest. The GBA has been out for awhile now, with three different versions (standard, SP, and Micro). Nintendo might be shifting more towards games for the DS, and they expect strong sales when they cut the price for it a bit.

I dont see the point in buying a GBA when you can get a DS which does all that plus more. The micro might revive the GBA but I somewhat doubt it. Also I think the PSP would have helped a lot with the GBA decline too. Nintendo had no competition for years now they do.

Not for a while... well at least I think not for a while. If they make a new one eventually, I think it will be like the Gamecube in a pocket form... that would be sweet. Its a safe thing to say, I know, as you look at the way Nintendo has been bringing their handhelds out... GBY = Nintendo GBA = Super Nintendo DS = N64 Next??? Cube handheld... eh? I hope so. Zelda on the go.... Whoot!

Nintendo just isn't trying anymore. The Gamecube sucked, the GBA Micro is just gay, and the Revolution is hopeless.

Gamecube doesn't suck. GBA... hrmm never really liked it all that much however Advance Wars and Goldensun made it worth while. And I dont see how you can even say the Revolution sucks. Have a look on http://www.gamerankings.com check out "the rankings" section and you will see a few Nintendo games there, 1st for instance and 3rd, 4th and 5th. And thats ratings based off a lot of websites.

Yeah thats cool. But not official, still mad though. My only question with this whole concept is battery life. I couldnt see anything about that.
