I didn't have a GBC when I was younger, so lol thought I'd ask. Thanks in advance! Sorry that this is an unconventional question, haha.
After repeated use it will start to loosen, it's nothing to worry about.

    Well, I have recently gotten back into obsessing over Pokemon, I was thinking of getting a GameBoy Advanced at Gamestop for like 20-30 dollars.
    I have a DSi XL that i love :) but sadly it doesnt come with a GameBoy game slot. (BOO!)
    SO I ask all of you if i should get one.
    Thanks :)
    (if this is in the wrong forum please tell me, I'm still figuring out where everything goes)

          "Buy" a Gameboy emulator? LOL

          Anyways, you can find a Gameboy for really cheap prices in Swap Meets or in Flea Markets. I've found plenty of them.
          That or you could just buy one online.

          As for your question, first answer this: "So I'm just gonna have game cartridges for nothing?"

          I would get a Game Boy SP. Hate to knock my most nostalgic handheld, but once you get something with a backlight, it's hard as hell to go back to old handheld consoles without one. So if you can get an SP, that would be the better option. Plays Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance games like a pro because it has a backlight. Only problem would be locating a charger.

          btw, I totally understand the feeling of wanting to play games on the real deal console. I am not a fan of emulators at all. There's something quite nice about holding the console or controller in your hand and playing it the way it's supposed to be played. :)

          I suggest you get an SP like Sydian said. I just got one back in December and remember first turning it on to play my Sapphire. I had a GBA but that broke on me and it took a while for me to adjust to how bright the backlight was. It's also not as bright as the DS's backlight which is also why it felt so different, but the GBA doesn't have a very bright screen and can't be played in the dark without a light accessory.
          I had one of the twisty kinds for my Game Boy Color.(also known as a worm light)
          Spoiler:


          It's a little less cheaper to buy a SP which was a backlight built in than buy a GBA and a light accessory IMO. Plus it can play Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advanced games just like the GBA.

          Even though the worm light is cheaper (I had two...I hate that I can't find them though!), I found it unhelpful and a bit of a nuisance, especially for GBA games which have a bigger screen. The worm light only illuminates a small spectrum (lol like Flash in RSE!) and gets a lot of glares. Granted, it's been years since I've used one.

          Anyway, if I bought an original Green Version, would it work on my American Game Boy? Or Color, Advance, SP, whichever I play it on, lol.

          And speaking of regional things, if I bought a French 3DS game from Quebec, would that still be in the same region as the USA? Or would the region lock get me when I play it on my 3DS? Thanks in advance!

            You can find SPs at local gaming stores if you have any, and possibly GameStop though I wouldn't bank on it. You might have luck online, though if you choose to buy one offline, Amazon would be your better choice.

              Well, I found a solution (if i don't get the GBA later) because i have a DS Lite that i had for about 4-5 years and the touch screen broke, i mean if you want to touch then it will take a while or won't happen. BUT as we all know GBA games had no touch screen (way to state the obvious -.-) and i can use it for GB games!! WOO! :D
              Although, i may get a GB or GBA SP cause the screen is all flimsy and such...
              Anywho, thanks for the help guys :) I wouldve bought anything...
              Now... What Pokemon game to get >:)

                If you do end up getting an SP, be sure to get an AGS-101, the screen on it is much better than the 001.

                  Isn't the Uncharted series playable in co-op, or is it online only?

                  And I second Little Big Planet 2. Just bought it for my brother today and it'd be a ton of fun to play with someone else I imagine.

                  You're right, Uncharted 3 has an offline co-op mode (but it's not story mode), but 2 is online only.

                  Is this the place to ask help with a system? I'm not sure what's up on my Xbox, I never use it. Someone help?

                  Sure! You can post in here about that if you wish and I am sure one of us will be able to, at least, give you advice.

                  Well my problems's solved but I'll ask anyway for future reference.

                  I download something for Kinect but ended up not liking it. I tried deleting it though, it my Xbox said "Can't perform action". Everytime I tried deleting it would give me the same message.

                  What was it and what was happening? How is it solvable?

                    Well... I have some trouble in deciding which should I do whether buying or downloading Elder Scroll V: Skyrim. What is your opinion about this?

                    If you are having trouble whether to buy it or download it and you would buy it, then I would advise download it, play it for a bit (but not complete it) and then decide whether it's good enough for purchase.
