Here's a bright idea for those who are looking to purchase one of these great 'lil Nintendo portable gaming systems. This particular Onyx Black Game Boy SP happened to be the earlier Model No. AGS-001 When purchasing either new or used gameboy SP game system be aware & keep in mind that the 101 Model os the Game Boy SP features the same solid design as it's previous 001 model however the 101 model features a much brighter screen for greater viewing & provides an overall better gaming experience compared to the earlier SP model. Model 001 is great but the 101 Model is by far the greatest of the SP consoles Nintendo has released. Definitely worth double checking & looking into & asking the seller which model SP is for sale if the seller hasn't already stated specifically which actual model# Game Boy SP is for sale. If it's a Model No. AGS-001 you have stumbled upon while shopping around for an SP. I would definitely hold off until you can find a Model No. 101 which is the model of choice.
This system is great to have. There's light in the screen so see better in the dark, but you can turn it off with a button. This system uses it's own special battery that you need to charge, that's good so you save on normal batteries. I bought this in Onyx black but I bought the shell for pearl blue, this is also a plus for this system so you can have it any color you want. It was a bit hard to change the shell but it works great still. Plays in wide screen, normal Gameboy games have the black on the sides, or you can stretch it out by pushing the L or R buttons. Great system to have for any gamers who like hand held games.
This is a great little gaming system that I picked up for my nephew's birthday. All the Gameboys are nice, and he had a Gameboy Color that he enjoyed, but the Gamboy Advance SP is the one that steps up to a self-illuminated screen... no more lights needed for playing in dim/dark light. The unit is very small and compact, folds up to protect itself, and isn't nearly as big as the original Gameboy Advance, nor the one with dual screens. My nephew was ecstatic with the gift, but the GBA-SP is back-compatible and will play all his Gameboy Color games as well as others. He's pretty much in heaven with this gift and I bought it from an excellent seller. The seller described it to a "T", had great feedback, and went the extra mile on the purchase. It came in a bundle with a game and a backpack. You know, purchases like this is what eBay is all about!!
After playing with this for a few months, how could I possibly go back to a console system, restricting my fun to a chair and television set?
I can take this portable anywhere (yes, including the bathroom) and it just delivers amazing gameplay, sound, etc.
The volume control is very precise and you can lower it to whisper level when you are playing (I played it while waiting for my car (having an oil change) in the waiting room).
This unit actually fits inside my pocket (some of the other, more advanced systems are too large).
The screen size is the same as the more advanced Nintendo DS and about 1 inch larger than the Nintendo Gameboy Micro.
The rechargeable battery is locked in with a tiny screw that requires a screwdriver when it's time to replace it.
However, since that probably won't happen in a few years, it does not affect the performance, quality or portability of this game system.
When I bought mine, I had a choice of colors (graphite -versus- metallic blue).
I chose the metallic blue color.
The brighter display works when you press a tiny button on the top center of the lower half of the unit.
When playing in a brighter setting, keep in mind that this will drain the battery a bit faster, so I often choose when to go for the extra brightness.
The power button is located on the outer right side - I turn the system on before I flip the unit open - the best design!
I won't be accidently pressing the power button when in the mist of action.
The weight, size and balance all feel just perfect.
I can hold this unit with one hand if I need to answer the phone or something.
As Nintendo continues to provide newer, more advanced game systems, I am pleased to know that they have decided to support this amazing little unit.
For a more technical perspective; The Gamboy Advance SP = The Super Nintendo (without the 'X' and 'Y' buttons).
This unit has a directional four way keypad, Brightness, Start, Select, B & A buttons are on the top.
The left side has the volume slider.
The right side has the power button.
The front has the cartridge slot.
The rear has the L & R buttons, power adapter, gamelink adapter & slots for the neck strap.
In conclusion, I can play anywhere, store it in my pocket and simply enjoy life.
In such a hectic life, it's good to know that it is possible to find some free time to enjoy video games.
This is a learning experience for me. Occassionally I go to the box deer stand with my husband and needless to say I was bored to death. He has a gameboy that I gave him several years ago when he had back surgery and he would play Tetris (sp)to pass the time. I decided to get one for myself and unfortunately you cannot buy these in the store, only something really fancy that you can get on the internet with and I don't know what else. So I checked e-bay and here they are. I really like this one because it folds up and you can easily slip it in a pocket. Has color, a good screen that even someone like me with horrible eyesight can easily see and is very easy to use. I just have to find games that I will like beside Tetris. One thing you need to be aware of is when you buy games be sure to buy ones with instruction books or if you buy a gameboy and games come with it but no books you can buy them elsewhere. Maybe you can figure out how to play without the books but I am 72+ and need the books. I highly recommend this Gameboy. Oh one last thing. I gave one to my Granddaughter 3 or 4 years ago, her older brother was using it and left it in his pants pocket. His other grandmother washed the pants without checking pockets so the gameboy went through the washer and dryer. Needless to say it would not work at first but I put it on the kitchen counter to see what would happen when it really did dry out completely. End of story, after a couple of days it came back to life as good as new and is still working. I don't recommend washing one but I do know of one that was none the worse for the trip in washer and dryer.
Gameboy advance can play games made for the older Gameboy so that is a real advantage if you know someone that has that type games. The older GB's cannot play games for GBA or sometimes called Game Boy Advance Special. You can go backwards as far as using games with GBA but with the first or second generation Game Boys you cannot play the newer type games.
Well this is far more than you ever wanted to know but if you have a lot of waiting, doctors office, hospital waiting room, deer stand, in the car on a long trip anything where you need to pass the time - this is for you. Also they tell me playing with these games will keep your mind sharp. Must say I'm still waiting for that to happen but then maybe mine is too far gone to be helped. cjwd
