About this product
- Product DescriptionReleased in 2001, the Jasco edition of the Nintendo Game Boy Advance has a translucent, or glacier, light-purple finish, allowing some of the internal components to show through the case. Particularly visible are the components at the speaker and above the screen. The design also features the images of Luigi and Mario at the bottom left and right hand corners of the screen, respectively. Otherwise, this special edition of the popular handheld system matches the standard 32-bit Game Boy Advance in specifications, boasting a 2.9-inch reflective screen with a 240 x 160 pixel resolution. An integrated 4/8 MHz Z80 coprocessor allows users to play all of their old Game Boy and Game Boy Color games on the Game Boy Advance.

Nintendo Game Boy Advance (handheld gaming device) - Glacier style
Light-weight, small, convenient, easy-to-use, and an overall great gaming system! The perfect 'vintage collectible' purchase.

Great for a now-ancient gaming system - good for nostalgia or first-timers!
It's crazy to think that this system was released when I was a kid in elementary! Gameplay is fairly straight forward and easy to get the hang of. The connectivity aspect with the Gamecube is definitely a plus, particularly with the Pokémon games (hey, I love my fossil Pokémon). The one negative to handheld games from this era is the lack of a backlight, so you have to play in fairly direct light. Simple solutions are to use outside light or to find a lamp.

Even though these are a little out of date these days. I still love it especially for little kids. I recently bought one for my kids. I wanted something that was more durable. The gameboy is more durable and I think it's great for little ones. It is an easy simple game system to play. My youngest can play it and both of my kids love it because they can take it with them in the car, or wherever we go.Plus, you can get lots of games for a great price. There are tons of games on eBay for cheap. My kids enjoy playing this and it has a pretty good color picture too. However, the screen is small and glare can become a problem. You almost have to invest in a gameboy light, so you are able to see the picture in dark areas and more clearer.(which can be found on eBay as well) I still think it's great for kids.Read full review

90s Childhood Greatness
I loved the Gameboy Advance I had when I was a kid growing up in the 90s, and I was crestfallen when my neighbor accidentally broke it. Now, more than a decade later, I got a chance to get another one pretty cheap here on ebay! For ten bucks, I was extremely satisfied and the system was even better than I had remembered. Though it's true that the GBA isn't back-lit and doesn't really hold a candle to the graphics and functionality of such portable gaming systems as the PSP, it's integrity still remains wholly intact.
The screen, a step up in size from its predecessors, is a large part of the "special" features of the GBA, and its resolution is more than adequate in regards to the functionality and playability of the system as a whole. I love reliving my classic gaming conquests on this thing, and it really brings back memories of a much simpler, less chaotic time. Other than the sentimentality factor, however, I would assume it would be obvious to note that any games played on this system are bound to be a bit dated, so if you're looking for the "latest and greatest" technological marvel, this one probably isn't for you. But if you're like me, and you enjoy such classic titles as Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, etc, than I highly recommend that you invest in one of these beauties...unless the backlighting is an issue for you, in which case I might recommend the more current version of the GBA. However, the original GBA does have the advantage of being able to use a card-reader, so you'll have to weigh the pros and cons if that's a big tie-breaker for you.
Overall, though, the GBA is quite simply, if nothing else, a reminder of how much fun good 'ol cartidge games can be.Read full review

Quality outdated gaming system for collector
I bought this product for my 11 year old brother who likes to play older video games. I like this product because, unlike the newer handheld devices, it uses regular batteries and does not require a charger. Because gameboy is outdated, it's slightly harder to find compatible games. Overall, my brother is satisfied and is happy with this purchase.
