The Average Gamer

Nintendo news

The GameBoy Micro was released throughout Europe yesterday and is available in silver, blue, pink and green. It costs £69.99 and has interchangable faceplates that can be bought individually for £14.99.
It’s basically a really tiny Nintendo GameBoy Advance SP and takes standard GBA cartridges. It also takes standard headphones, which is a nice advantage over the SP.

Nintendo also announced yesterday that they will be setting up free Nintendo wireless networks all around the country for Nintendo DS players to challenge one another. From their website:

1) Gamers will be able to visit any one of over 7,500 Wi-Fi hotspots at locations across the UK. These include McDonalds restaurants, Coffee Republic coffee houses, Hilton and Ramada Jarvis hotels, Road Chef and Welcome Break service stations, First Great Western railway stations, over 25 student unions and city centre BT Payphones and airports, football stadiums and even the British Library and Canary Wharf. By logging onto or and entering your town or postcode; you can find the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection hotspots closest to you.

2) Nintendo UK will also be installing BT Openzone Wi-Fi hotspots into major video games retailers and other key outlets across the UK, meaning it really is possible to game anywhere!

The service should be launched on 25th November, just a couple of days before my birthday. Yay!
