Product Description
The Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP is a handheld video game system that combines innovative gameplay options with a comfortable and stylish platform. The handheld video game system is designed to look like a stylish alarm clock, but it opens to reveal a sleek 2.9-inch reflective TFT screen. Unlike some other Nintendo handheld devices, it has an optional backlight to illuminate the screen in dark places, activated with a small button underneath the screen. With the backlight on, the Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP boasts an 11-hour battery life, taking about four hours to fully charge afterward. Ergonomics have played an important part in designing this handheld video game system, which is small enough to hold. The screen naturally positions itself at about 150 degrees to provide a comfortable viewing angle. The console is compatible with older Nintendo handheld games, and it weighs approximately 5 oz with a cartridge, making it light enough to carry around in a pocket or bag. For those who love gaming on the go, the Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP will not disappoint.

Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood

  • THE GOOD

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

  • THE BAD

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

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

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

Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP - Handheld game system - o

Review For: Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP Onyx Black Handheld System

I love this handheld system. It is a thousand times brighter than the regular gameboy advance. With it's neat color it looks cool for any child of yours.
With the ability to fold, it takes up less space than the game boy advance.
Go to www.amazon. com for fantastic reviews. They have a lot more information, there, than Ebay.
I woul definately reccomend this other than the regular advance. Pay a little more for this for a BIG difference.
You can only buy game boy advance and Gameboy Advance Sp games for this Nintendo Ds games DO NOT WORK. I repeat NINTENDO DS GAMES DO NOT WORK!!! Don't even try! The slot is too, big.
I also reccomend getting a Ds because you can play both kinds of games!!!
Comes in diiferent colors, so if you have a daughter who prefers pink I reccomend buying the pink one (or you can buy this one cheaper and then buying a pink face plate! MUCH CHEAPER!!!!)

Features
Dimensions (WxDxH): 8.1 cm x 8.3 cm x 2.4 cm

Game Boy Advance SP - Great System & Great Games

Review For: Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP Onyx Black Handheld System

The Game Boy Advance SP is my pick for the best handheld system on the market. Sure - the PSP is cooler. But its more expensive. The Nintendo DS is awesome - but its much bigger.

The Game Boy Advance SP represents value and great gaming - the games are affordable and there are 100s of great titles and releases. Also, the system fits in your pocket easily. Best of all - its on the Nintendo platform - meaning you can play Donkey Kong, Mario World, and others while on the subway. Additionally, this is a great time to buy the Game Boy Advance SP because its very affordable and the price is dropping as the other systems come at at lofty prices.

# Approximate Size (Closed): Height 3.33 inches, width 3.23 inches, depth 0.96 inches.
# CPU: 32-bit RISC CPU with embedded memory.
# Screen: 2.9-inch reflective TFT color LCD.
# Light Source: Front lights have been integrated with the existing reflective LCD.
# Display Size: 1.61 inches by 2.41 inches (identical to the Game Boy Advance).

Gameboy Advance SP Brighter Version (Onyx Color)

Review For: Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP Onyx Black Handheld System

This is a Gameboy Advance SP Brighter Version handheld video game system in Gray (Onyx) Color, produced and manufactured by Nintendo, this video game system is small enough to fit inside your pocket or bag for carrying anywhere to have some fun and joy playing it on, it recharges quickly and its battery holds enough energy for playing about 8 or 9 hours with screen light on and 15 hours with screen light off! This is the last Gameboy Advance SP version, with the "brighter screen" tecnology that illuminates its screen 15% more than the regular version (this game system can play with no screen illumination or with two types of screen illumination, the dimmer one and the new brighter one; you can just choose it pressing the small button under the screen), it plays cartridge games in 2D and some games in simple 3D with a simple way of playing video games, thus it has a gamepad, with 6 more buttons (a, b, l, r, start and select buttons)! Beyond playing its own Gameboy Advance games, it still plays Gameboy Color games and the Classic Gameboy games too! This video game system is available in many colors and versions like: Black, Gray (Onyx), Red, Blue (Cobalt), Pearl Blue, Pearl Pink, Silver, Black & Silver (Limited Edition), Yellow (Pokemon Pikachu Limited Edition), Lime & Orange (Swamp Limited Edition), Tribal (Special Limited Edition), Pearl White & Brown (Famicon Limited Edition), Yellow (Sponge Bob Limited Edition) Black/Silver/Red (Classic NES limited edition); this video game system is available also in two standards, such the PAL standard (for United Kingdon, Australia, New Zeland and part of Europe and Asia) and the NTSC standard (for USA, Canada, South America and the rest of America)!

Some Gameboy Advance classic and best games:

Super Mario Advance I, II, III
Mario Classic NES edition
Mario Kart Super Circuit
Metroid Fusion
Metroid Zero Mission
Metroid Classic NES edition
Final Fight
Final Fantasy I, II, III, IV and V

GameBoy Advanced SP: an oldie but goodie

Review For: Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP Onyx Black Handheld System

I'm not an game addicted, mostly I don't spend much time on it, even computer games does not really attract me. Anyway, I had a GB and latter a GB color which used to play from time to time, but got tired of a few annoying limitations: Size, color, lack of back-light etc.

When my son made his 4th birthday I gave my games to him, and he just love it. One day the sunlight was vanishing and I saw him holding too close to eyes. I decided to give a try on a Game Boy Advanced SP just because it had back-light, oh, well, it was cheap also. Anyway It arrived and my son just went mad. He grabbed it and played right away. I had to put up a schedule to prevent him to get his eyes too tired.

One day I was waiting him at school door and decide to play a little... guess what: it was a great console. The highlights:
- The back-light does make difference to the eyes;
- The size is perfect, it is fold-able to be even smaller;
- The sound is better and a little higher than the old GB and GB Color;
- It is back compatible with GB and GB Color;
- The GB Advanced own cartridges are better than GB and GB Color and much faster with better graphics;
- The internal rechargeable battery last a lot and if it dies, just buy a new one at ebay, its cheap, its parctical;
- One can play without battery, just plug the AC adapter;
- Can link-play with another GBAs;
- The cartridges are cheap;
- Very strong build: it's hard to see one to break. It survives my son's lack of ability and care. It's around for years and still theres a great market for used system and cartridges.
- etc

Unfortunately I had no time, but I assure it's a great system. I've already bought a second one to play with my son.

Nice system

Review For: Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP Onyx Black Handheld System

To be honest there's probably not much I can tell you about the GBA SP you don't already know. The screen is backlit, the battery life is excellent even for a backlit system(3-4 hours). The system is compatible with original game boy games, game boy color games, and game boy advance games. It plays beautifully and is nice, light and compact so its easy to carry around. Additionally, since the unit folds so the screen is not exposed when stored, the scratches done to your screen should be minimal. The design is elegant yet functional and fun to play. The GBA SP is an excellent purchase if you can get one for the right price. I also recommend this unit because they still sell for less than $60 typically, which is a good bargain for any versatile backlit hand held game system.
