GameSpite Quarterly #1, part 10.5

Game Boy Camera
Hey, well howsabout that. This week’s Monday update is finally finished. And only five days late! We wrap this thinly-spread chunklet with Calorie Mate’s really great look back at the Game Boy Camera. For something that sticks in my mind as such an iconic element of Game Boy history, it’s weird to think it was released as late as 1998. Zany.

  1. I had no idea this was a must-have item in the U.S. at one point. Luckily, Nintendo had no presence in Argentina at the time, so we were all spared their marketing campaigns and happily skipped the camera altogether.

  2. I was fortunate enough to pick up a gold camera recently. While it’s not the best camera, per se, you can still take some great snapshots of objects with it. And some of the error screens were good for a laugh.

  3. Huh. That article sounds a lot more negative than I’d originally intended. Yes, it’s hard to actively love the activities contained within the GB Camera, but I love that thing with all my heart.

  4. Oh, and you’re not alone on the 1998 thing. I triple-checked that date and ended up pulling out my own just to be sure. I really, truly thought it was out closer to, say, 1995.
