The Game Boy Micro is a smaller version of the Game Boy Advance that was released in 2005, and was the last Game Boy system by Nintendo. It functions the same, but this system cannot play Game Boy or Game Boy Color games (due to its small size) unlike the original GBA and SP. This system can only play Game Boy Advance games. Also, it is said that the release of the original Nintendo DS on November 21, 2004 shortly before the release of the Micro in September 2005 and six months before the release of the DS Lite (which could both play GBA games, but not DSi) put it at a disadvantage, simply sending the Micro into Nintendo history, much like the release of the Game Boy Light in Japan with the Game Boy Color. This system was discontinued in December 2009, like its predecessors.
