Do they STILL make games for it?!?! How is the game quality?! and also does it suck battery power fast like i heard the SONY PSP did?!?

Well the GBA SP is rechargeable. The New Brighter Screen ones are really nice. Games are still being produced for it but Nintendo is mainly concentrating on the DS and Wiiiiiiii now. Mike : )

Hmm so that SP one is that like have built in nicads?!?! cause i know evetuallyover time they do die..and need to replace.. and if they are built in thatwould make it harder to replace!.. Also i know the LCD screens are hard to see sometime... i have an old GAMEGEAR that it gets reallybright and you cant see it.. then you can turn the knob down.. and it gets darker.. and still hard to see.. that is one reason i never got into the Gamegear cause of that hard to read screen!

you knwo about that game like you say they make games for it but are concetrating on the DS and WII.. all the companys are doing that now... in the last issue of EGM i read that the XBOX original is now considered obsolete.. they make games for it still.. but the concetration is on the 360 now.

i guess thats why it is hard to find one now Sad

Yo.. you were saying the SP one has a better display?!?! and is rechargable.. .. i asked if that had nicads in it.. and are easily replaceable, should they die?

Is the SP the flip open GBA?!?!

Hello, Yes you can replace the rechargable battery in the SP & DS. The Screens have Great Visibility, especially the SP with the NEW Brighter Screen and the DS Lite. Game Gears frequently go bad to where the contrast is worthless no matter what you set it at and you have to play at an angle. I sold one of those Defective ones here for like $4.00. Poor Lame Gear. Yes, the SP is the Flip Open Version of the GBA. Mike : )

"Hello... this is a recording" hehe...

yeah yoru right about the gamegear doode.. it is lame gear... an old freind of nmnine got himself the sega nomad i think it was.. man i wish my son still had his sega carts hehe.. i would have gotten the nomad back then.. but the GBA looks killer.. for portable to bring around with me.. where ever i go.. tho i dont go hardly anywhere very much hee.. .. some of the screenshots looked kewl for some of the games.. i cant afford a DS.. just looking in to something ELCHEAPO.. but better then ALAMOGEAR hehe

Poor lame gear.... that is sad they could have been a nice system.. if it wasnt for the screen and well only game i have for it is the SONIC one.. that well just sitting in its plastic case.. cause i dont use the game gear anymore..

So doode your expertise opinion: :O)

if i was to get one in the future.. what one would you recommend? the regular one (which i kinda like better cause no movable parts on it) or the flip type(SP) one? (that one i am kinda learey about being movable parts on getting worn).. but it is the over quality and game play, i guess i am looking for?! hehe

it isnt like i am goign to get one any time soon.. so i have time to look around.. hehe i have a couple others things right now (if you know what i mean hehe) that i am in the middle of getting first!

Yeah man i am going to be rocking here soon!!! Smile

Well its all up to you really. At first the SP cramped my hands because the controls are so close together. The NEW Brighter Screen Version is a BIG Improvement though. For Cheap just pick up a reg GBA and play under a light. Mike : )

There are a lot of people in the hom-brew scene still making games for all of the GB games... Even the DS. Some are pretty good!!

Morning ... well if and when i was to ever getone,, the orginal ones (the non sp one) would be the one i would probly get.. i read whatyou said mike, about how the buttons are cramped on the flip top one... and i loooked at the pictures.. of them and yeah your right.. it kinda reminds me of playing one of them VMU games on the Dreamcast VMU hehehe.. one way to get carpeltunnel syndrome fastin the thumbs!

The reason i like the other older one.. (but that was before finding out that the screens arent that bright), we cause it seems to play kinda like how the game gear playes.. wiht a control and buttons on the side of the screen spread out more so you arent cramped... thats kinda whay i thought i would like the GameGear!

but now since you mentioned that the Original GBA is a darker screen .. which reminds me how the GameGEar is also hard to see.. i wonder if the video quality of both are the same becuase of the lcd they use?

Speaking of Third party games..the GBA is cartdrige based.. so the third party games are commerical?!

How about playing Donkey Kong on the Super Gameboy? Graphics look silly, but it is fun.
