On 4th March, 2013 I bought a Game Boy Color in really good condition, so this became my very first game console (at age 27, huh).
On this day I heard the welcome notes for the first time – it felt great, hehe.
It says “© 1998 Nintendo” on the back, so this is a 15 years old platform (actually mostly a 24 years old with some improvements, as the original Game Boy was released back in 1989), but still great! I’m in love with it.
I’ve also checked out the Game Boy Advance (GBA) before I bought decided to go with GB/GBC line – the GBA has a 32-bit CPU at 16 MHz and 288 kB RAM + 96 kB of VRAM, this spec is just ridiculously high, who needs this much anyways? I’m sticking with the lower specs.
So I am now very happy with this little Game Boy Color – next thing on my TODO list to buy a programmable cartridge and start to test my developments outside the emulator.
