After searching around for a while I finally managed to find a good looking Game Boy Light on eBay and had it sent over from Japan. The Game Boy Light is considered to be a rare collectors item and rarest Game Boy variant available since it wasn’t released outside of Japan. Today I wanted to take a look at the handheld and see how it holds up.

  1. That reminds me of the battery pack i bought for my gameboy colour, which used 2 ni-mh batteries, and basically worked like the wii remote battery packs, and it still works, so it was definitely worth the purchase!

  2. Is Spawn Wave the monster that mommy and daddy consoles tell their children about, so they'll behave? "You'd better be good, or the Spawn Wave will open you up!"

  3. I worked at toys r us during the time Gameboys was out. We would always sell out on the worm light. I still have mine and it works perfectly fine to this day. It definitely was a necessity to play in darker areas.

  4. My parents gave my gold version away of the Game Boy Light when they were cleaning up the closets… .

  5. I've always loved the look of t hese, the shine, and the sleakness of the actualy model looks awesome. Was hoping to one up one day. Though its …kinda not needed based on all the other mathods of playing games.

  6. I keep forgetting these exist then suddenly i really want to buy one again!

  7. How much did you pay? I live in Japan and GBLs are not rare at all. I get them for around $10 usd.

  8. Actually rarest game Boy would be micro mother 3 edition

  9. These days people pay big bucks for the best controller. Back then, people paid for the best light for their Gameboy.

  10. The lack of any kind of screen illumination on Gameboys really sucked. Even back then. I wonder why Nintendo didn’t release this in the US?

  11. I remember really wanted one of these about 10 years ago

  12. Who remembers having the light with a Magnify glass

  13. It’s definitely not rare it’s just overpriced by idiots who decided to overprice them. There’s a reason why the handheld was never released outside one the main selling point to the Gameboy was its battery life which was about 40 hours with good batteries. Plus it was pretty stupid to have a backlit screen for a black and white (or green) console as opposed to a color system which would’ve made more sense. The Gameboy light was about 8 hours which wouldn’t have worked here in the states. I’ll stick with my much affordable Gameboy color with a worm light or my gba sp 001 or 101.

  14. There's something pretty magical about playing your authentic GBC in the morning light, though. Peak nostalgia, and I didn't even have one as a kid.

  15. I had a GB Light a few years back that had a VERY bright backlight. At least comparable to a new Casio watch backlight. Unfortunately it delveloped a pretty serious issue with the screen where it would randomly glitch out and sometimes it wouldn't display graphics at all. Too bad!

  16. Japanese gamers getting the best stuff since….forever?

  17. The rarest gameboy
    The gameboy that literally Caught on fire am I a joke to you

  18. I've been aware of this like 10 years ago.

  19. Ok, and why did you buy the rarest Game Boy on eBay?
