    Default I dropped my import GBA :(

    This morning I was getting into the car with a handfull of things for Thanksgiving boredness and my dear dear Hello Kitty GBA with some other things in one of the only open topped purses I own. I beat Hamtaro so I thought I would try and play Broken Sword after turkey.

    Suddenly- horrible!- my GBA falls out onto the street and when I pick it up I see it has two big scuffs on it's pretty pearly pink front edges.
    Should I try and cover the scuffs with stickers? I've been so careful, I'm really sad about this!

    ouch.. About the only thing to do is buy a new one and sell that one.

    I'd be happy to take it off your hands for $10.

    Just purchase a new/mint one and store it away in a safe place. Then simply use the one you dropped to play your games. This way you are always assured that you have a perfect GBA stored away, and you won't worry too much if something like this ever happens again to the one you use. Pretty much the reason I keep a spare colecovision in a nice safe place that does not get touched...although the possibility of me dropping the one I use regularly on pavement is slim

    i dropped my old GBC, and the battery case compleatly snapped off. it sucked.
    Somebody once told me to get a life.

    I told them I sold it for money to buy video games.

    On the other hand, the GBC can be quite a sturdy little thing. It fell off the top of the fridge AND off the table in the same day. Still is fine.

    Now, if I could only remember where my GBA is...

    What's the problem? You bought it to play games not worship the thing. If you are concerned about it not being worth money now that it has a few nicks on it then buy a brand new one and don't open it. Otherwise if the sucker still works GAME ON and stop the crying. :cry:
