Nintendo Gameboy Light

One of the rarest versions of the GameBoy, also happens to be its very best. What am I talking about? Why the Game Boy Light of course. The 1998 back-lit Game Boy, that runs on two AA batteries and produces a stunningly crisp image. As it's highly collectible, you should be ready to spend around $200 when bidding on it via this Game Boy Light auction. The seller ships worldwide and is selling a complete, boxed console in great condition.

  1. Cool - I didn't even know that a backlit version existed. I've never been a big Game Boy guy but you're right that sure looks like the definitive one to own for the original line.

  2. A definitive version indeed, albeit a tad too expensive for my humble gnomic self. Still, I do suggest you give the Gameboy a, err, go. It's got some truly fantastic and innovative games.

  3. If I could only locate where online I saw that old Game Boy flash card for sale I might just get this thing even at its lofty price tag. Somehow it seems wrong to try and play them on a GBA.

  5. Is it a new retro purchase already? Shall I celebrate?

    Mind you, my friend, I quite enjoy GB games on the backlit GBA too. And GBC games too.

  6. yeah GBA is the only platform I ever play GB or GBC games on. I'd like to play them on my original GB/GBC like god intended but the screens are just so dark. And those little clip-on lights are annoying.

    On second thought I could probably finally get a Vectrex for what that GB Light is going for so... perhaps I should reconsider.

  7. Perhaps you should. regardless of how fond I am of the GB, the Vectrex, well, the Vectrex is something else entirely. It's a beautiful little arcade cabinet with a fantastic vector display.

    I thus vote for the Vectrex.

    There.

    (casts Vectrex vote)

  8. sigh - a good nights sleep to clear the head and it's up over $170 now. Guess I'll just stick with my old LightBoy steampunk magnifier glass thingamabob after all...

  9. A wise decision. Besides, the Vectrex wont just buy itself.
