Game Boy® Advance--pick it up and feel the power of the most advanced handheld gaming system ever, in an eye-popping portable package. With a bigger screen, brighter colors, bolder graphics and digitized stereo sound, it's not just new--it's a new generation!

Both flavors of Game Boy Advance get you in on the portable fun revolution. The classic Game Boy Advance offers gaming on the go at a bargain price, while the sleek Game Boy Advance SP adds a beautiful front light screen and rechargeable batteries.

Game Compatibility
The Game Boy Advance SP plays every game that can also be played on the Game Boy Advance. And vice versa. That's hundreds and hundreds of Game Boy Advance-only games. Want to go retro? You can also play every Game Boy or Game Boy Color game ever made. We've lost count, but trust us -- that's plenty.

Developers have only begun to tap the possibilities of the Nintendo GameCube Game Boy Advance Cable. Exchange data. Unlock secret characters, items and levels. Use the GBA SP as a secret game screen. The possibilities are endless.

GBA Multiplayer
Swap items. School your pals. Simply connect any combination of GBA SP and classic GBA systems. Some games even let you share a single Game Pak. Now that's spreading the joy.

GBA Screen
Hey, Good-Looking. Screens for both the GBA SP and classic GBA are big, sharp and vivid, displaying hundreds of colors at once in crisp, clear hi-res graphics. Your peepers will be dazzled.

Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery
Only in the GBA SP. Delivers hours of nonstop gameplay. Fast recharges get you back in the game quicker than you can say "Take that, you lousy minion."

GBA Sound
One speaker and a headphone jack deliver first-rate music, audio effects, even voice. Sounds great.
