    Lit GBA in March
    Nintendo's set to reveal its advanced GBA system. Picture right here.

    January 06, 2003 - Nintendo today revealed a brand new version of the Game Boy Advance.

    The unit, called the Game Boy Advance SP, will be a foldable version of the GBA that, most importantly, features a lit LCD screen. The GBA SP will be released in Japan on February 14th for 12,500 yen. It is reported that the system will go on sale in the US this March 23rd, the two-year anniversary of the GBA system's Japanese release. The device will retail for $99 in the US, but it will not replace the current Game Boy Advance system.

    The Game Boy Advance SP system will feature a rechargeable, replaceable battery pack that gives the GBA SP system approximately 10 hours playtime with the light on, 18 hours with the light off. The unit will be sold in three colors: Platinum Silver, Indigo, and Jet Black. The unit can fully charge its battery in three hours through the AC adaptor.

    The screen size and hardware are virtually identical to the current Game Boy Advance system. The unit will not have a headphone jack; Nintendo has created a special adapter for the GBA SP that plugs into the link port which enables users to plug in standard headphones. Sold seperately, of course.

    Nintendo will likely demonstrate the Game Boy Advance SP system at the CES this week. We'll be there.

    It looks like it'll be hard to handle-like it's not as wide the normal one.
