Attention video game shoppers, for the next
few hours we've got the
GameBoy Micro on sale, over the US border, at Future Shop Canada. The price in Canadian dollars is $97.99;
which in US dollars amounts to something around $83 and in Euros about EU68. Unfortunately, the online store
reports being already out-of-stock claiming they will ship the units once available. These things were
selling like hotcakes in Japan, so why the price drop at
FutureShop, we'll try to find out. I particularly enjoy one of the selling points listed at FutureShop: "Fits
Easily Into Gamer's Back Pockets". As if our pockets were somehow different from other pockets. Hmmm.
Update: According to comments received, apparently Wal-Mart Canada was holding an anniversary sale. Therefore both FutureShopo and EBGames matched prices. Thanks swampdonkey.
