Not to mention the Micro has much better screen quality, and a backlight. THE SMALL SCREEN DOES NOT HURT YOUR EYES. I've played my micro for 6 hours straigh with no effect to myeyes. I can't stand an SP for more than 2. Smaller screens don't urt your eyes as much as larger ones.
And The micro is, oh, 40% the size of an original GBA.
It' really nice that it has a rechargeable battery too. One day I was bored and I calculated that if you own an original GBA and play it 1/2 an hour each day for 5 years, you'll pay about 150-200 dollars for batteries. Isn't it sad when you pay more to keep a system running than you did for the system itself?
GBA's are cheaper out of the box, but in the long term no they aren't.
And the Micro's small screen is much better than the GBA's big one.
The only thing an original GBA has on the micro is playing older games and a bunch of accessories most people will never use. But those older games are two generations old, and if I want to play them I'll buy a GameBoy for $10.
Please, let's start a big mean argument!
