The Game Boy (Game Boy) produced by the famous video game company Nintendo is a handheld video series game system with interchangeable ink cartridges. Since its first launch in 1989, the Game Boy series has maintained its top position among the most successful portable games. Many types are now considered retro collectibles, and many technological advancements have become major trends in the gaming world.
Game Boy (also known as Game Boy Classic or GB):
The great success of the first Game Boy shocked the entire home video game industry and ensured that handheld devices became the standard. Never before has there been a system that combines high-quality cassette-based games with high-tech liquid crystal display (LCD) graphics provided in brilliant black and green. GB is also the first port for multiplayer combat by connecting multiple systems, as well as a handheld system for multi-link games.
Game Boy Pocket (also known as GBP)
Seven years after Game Boy Classic innovated handheld game consoles, Nintendo introduced a more compact version with the popular Game Boy Pocket system. This smaller unit not only retains all the features of the original version, but also appears in a more pleasing black and white. Pocket was also the first product to use a smaller multi-link port until the Game Boy Micro, which became the standard for all future Game Boy models.
Game Boy Color (also known as GBC)
In order to keep up with the development of the game world, Nintendo released one of the most influential game boy colors in the GB series. This type has a faster processor and is the first backward compatible gaming system to play games designed for GB Classic with limited colors. GBC is also the first handheld device that allows wireless transmission of information between two systems through an infrared port.
Game Boy Advance (also known as GBA)
Twelve years after Nintendo used the original GB Classic to ignite the game world, it did it again with the Game Boy Advance, putting the graphics functions of the console system into a handheld device. The quality of these games is slightly better than that of the Super Nintendo console and, like GBC, is backward compatible. Because many games have been ported to the system, the powerful features of the system have also given many classic console games a new life on GBA.
Game Boy Advance SP (also known as GBA SP)
In response to consumers' complaints about the lack of original GBA screens, Nintendo released GBA SP. It has most of the same features as GBA, but it is foldable and protects the screen when not in use. The screen is also backlit and can be played in any lighting situation. Although not as comfortable as GBA, it has become the most popular among the current generation of Game Boys.
Game Boy Micro (also known as GB Micro)
Nowadays, smaller and more stylish portable devices are more popular than ever, so it is natural for Nintendo to meet this demand with Game Boy Micro. Micro is smaller than I-Pod and is the smallest cartridge-based gaming system ever. Micro can be used not only as a gaming system, but also as an accessory to equipment through its interchangeable panels. This machine can play all GBA games, but unlike its predecessors, it is not backward compatible.
