    Default Gee.. another new Game Boy Advance SP color...


    http://www.lik-sang.com/news.php?artc=3390 (Scroll down)

    The "Gameboy Advance SP Donkey Kong Color Edition".

    I wonder what next week will bring. You can never have too many different colors of SP's. I can't wait for the day when the Advance is so outdated and you can get them for $20-$30 used. I seriously wanna collect them all.

    Anyone keeping a list?

    It would be more impressive if they made it more like the Donkey Kong N64 and controllers.

    Well, I love the Banana Yellow case and the Ape Brown buttons.. But unless there's some kind of cool silkscreened image on the outside of the case, it's just another color scheme. Would be nice to have an image of DK and Diddy on the outside.

    What's funny is when the "Special Edition" Black/Silver version came out, I thought "What the heck? That's UGLY! Is that the best we get?"

    That was mere months before they unleashed the Famicom SP, the Famicom SP 2, the NES SP, the DK SP, ad infinum...

    Hmmm.....yay. More space on our basedecks to be taking up by yet another color SP. We just moved off the Cobalt to put the classics there. =\

    That looks like baby feces. Come on...you know you were thinking it too....

    Seriously tho, I LIKE the many available colors. It's a GOOD thing. Variety is good. I'm happy about it. I bought a blue one, now I've bought a NES one. I can give one to my wife and we don't get em mixed up, and people don't accidentally grab yours instead of theirs (it IS a concern sometimes!). Regardless, it allows you to tailor gaming a BIT more to your style. What's so bad about that?

    Agreed 100%.

    If only I had a lot of $100 dollar bills.

    I'd be willing to bet there will be a pink Kirby model soon too as well as a japan only (of course) Kid Icarus pack with game. Then Nintendo will decide, oh hell, lets make a super famicm theme too.

    Agreed!

    Donkey Kong Color edition?!? I assume that in some foreign land that's another term for plain old yellow

    Ive never been a fan of nintendo and its 100-colors for each system. I personally think its a cheap way to sqeeze money out of the collectors...

    If the DS ends up in that list, I think it's pretty safe to say they're out of the hardware business. Heh.

    But anyway, if they had actually made up an SP to look like a DK arcade cabinet, that would have been pretty damned sweet.

    Well, there is already a Pink SP out. It's a JP-only model and it's actually called Pearl Pink (it looks more lilac than bubblegum pink, tho). Its buttons are grey.

    Of course it is, but whatever. Glad I'm not a completist, that's all I have to say.

    Actually, Japan has just about every damn color you can imagine. I'm a REAL fan of the solid White "Final Fantasy Tactics" version. Damn.. that is sweet. And the orange one that has a Pokémon on it, but not with the picture on the cover. Just the orange.

    I would think that that would be something nifty for a modder to do. Use something similar to the Coleco arcade shells, but place a GBA inside.

    ...

    I have to admit that I'm all for different colors. Around here, we played something akin to "musical chairs" with our Game.com sytems until we started placing stickers & such on the backs to identify them clearly.

    But everyone's forgetting about the greatest GBA SP Color!
