Nintendo micro console to hit Europe in Nov

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 1:55 am

Nintendo Co. Ltd will launch its Game Boy Micro, a portable mobile phone-sized games console, in Europe on November 4 for a recommended price of 99 euros, it said on Wednesday.

The Japanese company hopes to attract women and so-called casual gamers — those unwilling or unable to spend hours playing games on a PC or console at home — with the new device, which is available in metallic pink, green, blue and silver.

Nintendo, which announced the European launch at Europe’s biggest computer games fair in Leipzig, said late on Tuesday the Game Boy Micro would be available from the end of September in the United States at $99.

The European price is the same as that for the Game Boy Advance SP, Nintendo’s current console model — which may surprise analysts who believed it should be priced lower.
