Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP (Pearl Pink)

 

Solid, compact design; extremely bright screen; removable long-lasting rechargeable battery; bargain price

Still no standard headphone jack; tiny shoulder buttons; most games are skewed toward kids

Now that it has a brighter screen, Nintendo's Game Boy Advance SP is the budget champ for portable gaming.

Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP (Platinum)

 

Pricing is currently unavailable.

Stylish, compact design; front-lit screen; removable lithium-ion battery; compatible with all current GBA games and most accessories

Can't swap in standard batteries in a pinch; no included headphone jack

By including an illuminated screen, Nintendo has finally fixed the original Game Boy Advance's biggest flaw.

Product Specifications

The Game Boy Advance SP is a redesigned version of the wildly popular Game Boy Advance. The system has a new illumination feature and sleek flip-screen design making it the most distinctively stylish, compact and portable Game Boy system ever. Building on the significant improvements and refinements already introduced in the current Game Boy Advance, the Game Boy Advance SP features a revolutionary Front Light Screen making game play easy in any lighting condition. The system is powered by a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery good for about 10 hours of game play and takes only three hours to recharge. Amazingly, the battery life increases to approximately 18 hours of continuous play when the Front Light Screen is turned off. All current and future Game Boy Advance games are compatible with the new system. And, similarly, Game Boy Advance SP is backward compatible, allowing use with virtually all games and accessories previously released in the Game Boy line.
