I've just been to Comet in High Wycombe to look for a Gameboy Micro and got one for £19.99.

Mine is Silver, but they also had Pink at the same price. For some reason the Green One was £34.99.

While I was there I got the accessory pack for 99p, the Star Wars 3 game for £2.99 and the same price for the combined Finding Nemo and Incredibles games. The games were priced on the box at £14.99 and £12.99 respectively, but went though the checkout at £2.99 each.

I know they definitely had the pink gameboy in stock but not sure about the silver one as they got them from out the back!

    This is indeed country-wide. Bolton had them marked up at £39.99 but they were £19.99 on the system. I was tempted to get one but I decided to save my money and when I get a new phone, to get one that can emulate NES games and play video and so forth. Also, poundland does some sturdy crystal Micro cases that protect the screen and so forth.

    Got a silver one on Thurs for £19.99 from Comet Cambridge. Was going to leave it boxed for present, sell on eBay, etc., but yesterday the child inside me got the better of me and I opened it and had a quick play (much to the disgust of the wife)! Much better screen than the SP, smaller size but I think higher resolution. Now I've put it on eBay. Thanks to OP.

    I popped into Comet in Norwich yesterday and picked up two silver Micros. They had a few of those left and also some pink ones.
  • Which version of Gameboy is it? UK, USA or European?
