Video Game Fans Rejoice!
I broke my Gameboy Advance trying to install an Afterburner internal light kit. Actually it was mostly macklinr's fault. And to be fair, the light works rather well, but the d-pad is not responsive, and all the little screws are stripped to hell, which means it's hard to get into the chassis to make adjustments.

Plus I got furstrated with it and stomped on it a few times and threw it across the room.

Anywho, it looks like all my problems are solved now. The wonderful folks at Nintendo have announced a new version of the handheld console called the Game Boy Advance SP. It's smaller, it folds up, it has a rechargable battery and a built in light.



Wow, that thing looks cool. Too bad I can't get one until March 23rd.

Current Mood: excited excited

Maybe by March someone will decide to give me a much better job and I'll be able to afford one :P.

Hey, I'm at no fault here - I gave you a disclaimer before I started talking it apart and everything :P

But I do feel bad for the screw getting striped.

They should call that thing the iBoy.

I guess the built in light is actually a backlit display, much like the sega gamegear of ages ago. It's about time nintendo is finally catching up. I honestly think the GBA looks a bit better than this thing...
