Too bad the Wii didn't come with a built-in GB player.
I keep these Nintendo Life threads updated: Missing 3DS VC and Wii U VC between regions, Full of list first party Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Gear games missing from the 3DS VC, and Full of list first party Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, and Wii games missing from the Wii U VC.

I wish you could get a gameboy player for the Wii
Me, too. That's why I can't sell my GameCube in case I want another console.BTW, congrats on the gold shield, Sean.

I agree, a GameBoy Player for the Wii would be awesome.

Definitely get a GB Player. The Super Game Boy offers special color palettes and banners for some games, but it can't play GBC -only or GBA games. And you're much more likely to find GBPs that are in good condition.

I got a GBP when it came out and was expecting the same quality as the SGB, but was disappointed. A lot of GBA games look washed out on tv screen. (especialy older games). I didn't like using the GC controller for GBA games either. SGB is much better imo. If you want to play 16-bit games on your tv, you're much better off with an SNES anyway.

Super Game Boy only plays original Game Boy games, albeit in color. Since the GBC, and especially the GBA, hadn't been released yet, you can't play those games on it. I'd definitely get the Game Boy Player, although it won't play original Game Boy games in color. You can either use the Game Cube controller or the GBA with a link cable, but I'd recommend the latter because it's less awkward.
I didn't realise you could use the GBA as the controller on the Gamecube. The back of the game case doesn't state that any where.
Well it makes playing F-ZERO Climax slightly easier now.

Super Gameboy Player is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better for playing GB games becuase you can change the colors and borders.
EXPERIENCE MORE.... Arcade-quality graphics, awesome sound, "turbo-charged" game play, exciting TurboChip games... It's the incredible Turbo Genesis 64 Entertainment SuperSystem Experience. There's more fun, more challenge, and more excitment ready for you today!

"There are 12 different color palettes that can be used with original monochrome Game Boy games." Quoted directly from the Game Boy Player manual, and since that's the same number of color palettes you had for Super Game Boy it seems like an even call.
There are also 20 different borders to choose from when using Game Boy Player. This isn't as many as the Super Game Boy, but still not too bad.
Where you do lose out is the special features that some games had for Super Game Boy. Custom borders, music, and gameplay modes are (I think) only triggered when using the Super Game Boy. That said, I think the abilty to play GBC and GBA games more than makes up for the loss.

Your SGB numbers are off. The Super Game Boy only has 9 default borders, although most SGB-enhanced games have a border (or sometimes more) of their own. Similarly, it has 32 default color palettes, plus the ability to make one yourself.
The GBC, GBA, and Game Boy Player have 12 built-in color palettes for GB games, plus almost every Nintendo-published GB game has its own default palette on those systems, which is sometimes different from the set of 12.

Out of curiosity, what games do people like to play on the big screen? I'm toying with the idea of getting a Gamecube and GB player to sit next to the Wii. I have Pinball of the Dead (which I'd love to see on a big screen) Iridion II, Gradius Galaxies, and Activision Anthology. I used to have Astro Boy, and would probably try to find that again, along with Metroid Fusion and Zero Mission.

Thanks for the corrections. I tried to track down the SGB numbers online (because I only have a Game Boy Player) and must have used a bad source.

I usually like to play RPGs on a bigger screen instead of a handheld - but Metroid Prime/Fusion sounds like a great idea too.
For me, it's less about the game than how I'm feeling. Sometimes sitting down on the couch looking at a big screen is just much more comfortable than having to hold a portable system.

I actually have both now, and I am going to say that Super Game Boy is better for regular GameBoy games, while the GameBoy Player is better if you have GameBoy and GameBoy Advance games, since the Super Game Boy doesn't play Advance games.

Super Game Boy add-on is the superior of the two. 'nuff said, adding borders and changing color schemes is fun. Not to mention, it's fun setting the Game Boy controls to match those of the SNES controls (Y = B, B = A).
