So we were able to get our greedy little mitts on Nintendo's adorable little Game Boy Micro a few days in advance (no pun intended), and figured we'd share the joy of opening up a new toy with you in our grand tradition of gadget unpacking sessions. It's a little like sneaking downstairs to open your presents the night before Christmas, if you think about it, but a little more anticlimactic.

Thanks for the pouch, guys! That white thing (which we?re lovingly referring to as the Game Boy Micro Toilet Seat Cover) triggers the faceplate release mechanism.

Dark blue and black? What a faux pas!
