Game Boy Player?

By 

from USA

Comments about Nintendo - Game Boy Player Jet for GameCube:

The gameboy player is AMAZING. A good solution for those parents who didn't like the gameboy Color/Advance/SP handheld systems. This device, the Game boy player jet attaches onto the bottom of your Nintendo Gamecube. Just take off the cover, attach it, (screws attached to the player are optional, just for tightening onto the system) put in the gameboy player disc, and you're ready to play! This accessory is a good alternative to those small handheld device screens. It goes on your TV! It can read gameboy color, and gameboy advance games. It's also a good alternative to needing 2 gameboys to trade or connect and play games as well.
The format and design of the OS for gameboy player is very easy to learn. There are customizable screens, screen size, some button configuration, and even a reset. This accessory, overall, is a very great one, especially if you only have a gamecube, and want to get into gameboy games

Must-have for all-around Nintendo fans

By 

from Berkeley, CA

Comments about Nintendo - Game Boy Player Jet for GameCube:

In 1994, something really amazing was released for the Super Nintendo. No, not Donkey Kong Country, in fact, it wasn't even a game per se. It was the Super Game Boy.

This towering cartridge had a slot right down the middle for Game Boy games, which when used in conjunction with the Super Nintendo system, could display and play the games on a regular TV. No longer did kids (and adults) have to squint at their greenish screens and huddle under a light source at home. It was a great idea from Nintendo, proving a hit with consumers and critics alike.

This idea was revived on the Gamecube with the Game Boy Player, and much like its predecessor, is a solid accessory. This time around, support for Game Boy Advance games were the focal point, as evidenced by the size of the game slot. Your larger, regular Game Boy games also work, looking a bit funny sticking halfway out.

What can you say? Whether you're playing Pokemon Blue or Sapphire, it's just great to have a large screen to play it on. There are a lot of worthwhile games on the Game Boy format, and hopefully more people will appreciate them with this great accessory.

Play GBA/GB games on your TV

By 

from Marion, AR

Comments about Nintendo - Game Boy Player Jet for GameCube:

The Nintendo GameBoy Player for the Nintendo GameCube is something every GameBoy Advance fan should have.  This device plugs into the bottom of your GameCube and allows you to project GBA and GB games on your TV.  One downside to doing this is the games were not meant to be blown up so big, so they can get a little pixely sometimes.  Other than that there really are no cons to this device.  You can play with either the GameCube controller or by plugging your GameBoy Advance to the GameCube through a connection cable.  If you play a lot of GBA games then this is a must so you can stop looking at that tiny screen and see something bigger.  The original GBA did not have a backlit screen, so eye strain can happen a lot and it can be hard to see the screen.  When hooked up to the GameBoy Player you'll never have those problems again.  Because it plugs into the bottom of the GCN it doesn't need it's own power source and it can be left attached when not in use.  The downside is you must put in a GameBoy Player disc when ever you want to use it so the GCN knows what to boot up.

Now, what happens, when you bring the past to the future?

Ultimate fun happens.

Now, everytime, you run out of batteries for your Gameboys, Gameboy Colors, and Gameboy Advances, what would you normally do?  Go to the store to buy more batteries, take them out of your remote....  Why not just plug in your Gamecube to play those good ol' fashion games?

Just run to the store, and go buy a the Nintendo GB Player Jet for the Gamecube, it will play all those Gameboy games for you, that you always play...

Now, with the Nintendo GB Player Jet, you can play all your games for Gameboy, on the TV screen!  Now how fantastic is that?  Just imagine, instead of that little screen, you get a big beautiful, glorious screen! 

Couldn't you just imagine, all your video games from the past, played like the present and future video games?

That's what this Gameboy Player does, it does the best thing ever, It brings the past to the future and present. 

 

                                 And it creates, the ultimate fun!

Game boy player is fun to have.

By 

from Bronx, NY

Comments about Nintendo - Game Boy Player Jet for GameCube:

***Game boy player (GB Player) is an attachment that you can attache to Game cube to play your favorite game boy games and advance. You just need to attach it on the bottom of the console pop in your come in the bottom and play. Yes you do need to use a CD that goes with it but it would let you play your game. The best part of using the game player is that you don't need to add in codes to play the game that you want to play just pop the CD in and play your game. ***
