    Who's looking to get that new GBA SP?

    The one done up like an NES controller? I already have millions of reasons get it. This just pushed me over. I'll be getting it in a couple weeks.

    I was going to make a thread about the one I just bought but that would be bad since this one is already here, despite who started it. Anyway I just got one today. I can't test it until tomorrow. It is great looking so far.

    EDIT:Now I want the Zelda game to go with it.

    My regular GBA works just fine, and as long as it continues to do so I have no desire to get an SP.

    However, if I DO ever get an SP, I want one of these.

    Poke doesn't like seeing the screen much <_<

    I already have a SP, but I'll stop by my local gaming shop sometime this week to see if they offer a trade-in deal of sorts.

    I've already picked one up, myself. I got rid of my black one. I already picked up Zelda, Mario, Bomberman, and Xevious, too, which means I still need to get Ice Climber, Donkey Kong, Excitebike, and Pac-Man.

    I might, if I didn't already have my onyx/platinum. I just can't afford to save up a hundred bucks AGAIN. Especially now that I'm out of a job. :(

    I still won't trade my SP in, it's pretty sweet looking as it is. Only problem is the damn L button doesn't always push. Maybe I should pop in Fire Emblem and see if it only doesn't work for screen distortion on old games...

    I'm sure I'll be very happy keeping my black SP.

    What's the deal with charging $20 each for the classics games? I'm not trying to be a pennypincher about it, but that amount for a game like Donkey Kong, while it is a fun game, is a bit ridiculous.

    $20 is a bit much, but it's better than $30 a pop for Mario World, Mario 2, Mario 3, Zelda 3, and all the other warmed over left-overs Nintendo's served up on the GBA.

    I'd be perfectly happy just having my GBA if I could find it. Of course even if I did find it, I'd have to figure out where I put my games...

    I think I've said it before, but nothing in the collection is for sale, unfortunately. Occasionally, I come across some extras (boxes to games I've already got boxes for, extra rare strat guides, occasionally even extra games), and I'll start putting them up for bid on here first.

    I'm happy with my GBA. I don't need to spend any extra money on it, just because they added a minor detail to it.

    Sat's got everything. Seriously, I've rattled shit off before and he's had it all.
    Still, to adorn his humble youth,
    Nor wealth nor birth their treasures yield;
    But he who seeks the flowers of truth,
    Must quit the garden for the field.
