A bit too wide maybe.
You're also missing the ports on the side and bottom.

Yeah, the proportions are pretty off. Also I feel like you could model in something for the curve in the bottom right and maybe even the slant at the speaker.

Otherwise the texture is quite cute.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

I think maybe the title 'gameboy pixel' is referring to a deliberately square 'pixel shaped' machine; if you're looking right at the original to ref everything else it seems like an unusual oversight to make.

It's not intended to be accurate, made my own take on the Gameboy, if you'd even call it that. I called it a Gameboy just for convenience, it's pretty much inspired by some of those rip off models of consoles you see. I appreciate all the feedback  :)

I meant to post this earlier, but time passed too quickly I guess.

I just edited the front panel. I tried to make it look like a real gameboy, but I think you could still take some parts for your own version. The main things I focused on and that I think would make your own work look more interesting: the indention around the buttons, the select & start buttons, and the speaker area.

Just thought about it.
The power light is on but there's nothing on the screen!
Could be cool to put something there.

Considering how simple the model is, I think it'd be interesting if you tried to replicate the effect of the depth of the screen. I mean, cut out the screen portion from the model and then insert a single quad inside.

Err... this is hard to explain, so like this:


There is no shadow effect in place, I just used a very simple texture like so:


You may also be able to simplify it and extrude the screen into it, but I'm not sure if it would accurately replicate the effect.
