Ah, the ninth generation, how much graphic power and ‘ray tracing’, that speed with which games load and all those that can be left frozen to apply multitasking even in this playful activity. Only users with 4K TVs can really get the most out of a next-gen console, but what’s so special about it that hasn’t already been seen?
This is where perhaps the most original and at the same time less practical way of playing with a PlayStation 5 console comes in: using the small but stylish screen of the Game Boy Micro.
The process, however, is not so easy if you do not have the necessary tools. As well exposed on the YouTube channel, The Retro Future
The Game Boy Micro is turned on, as well as the PlayStation 5 console and… voila!
It goes without saying that the buttons on the Game Boy Micro cannot be used, only the volume buttons and the screen. The rest of the PS5 is controlled equally with the DualSense, but otherwise, the notebook works perfectly as a receiver of the video signal. Anyone would say that the games look terrible, but it is not so, it can be said that the last son of the Game Boy family is defending itself.
When the Game Boy Micro was released in September 2005, the Nintendo DS had already been on the market for a few months with its new touch screen, so this last breath of life for GBA was somewhat overshadowed. Nowadays it has been appreciated thanks to the rise of retro consoles, but while some people with big hands do not appreciate the Game Boy Micro, it is the best example of true portability (fits in a pocket) and quality of software
Despite having a smaller screen than the original GBA model or GBA SP, this is precisely what provides pixel-perfect resolution and more vivid colors in Game Boy Advance games (Game Boy / Game Boy Color are not supported).
