The Game Boy Advance SP has 32-bit processing power that offers the real gaming effect in advanced consoles. Your exciting game is accompanied with GBA technology that treats you with digitised stereo sound. This newly designed console conveniently suits the grip to kids of all ages. 

The Game Boy SP takes multiplayer gaming to a new level with the GBA SP’s link cable. Maximum 4 players can participate in the quivering action and some games require only one game pack. You have variety of games since GBA SP is backward compatible with all the Game Boy colour titles and Game Boy Advanced games.

How Game Boy Advance is Different?

The new Game Boy works similar to the other Game Boy Advance models, but it is enhanced with some unique features. The appealing feature is the built in lighting that allows playing in low light conditions. If you do not require light, you can save the power to get increased playing time.

Power Sources

SP is packed with rechargeable lithium – ion battery that lasts for10 hours to 18 hours of game play from a three-hour charge.


The Game Boy Advance dominates the market with ideal size, efficient power sources and affordable cost. However there are downsides such as missing head phone jack, which requires you to purchase the adapter separately. The L and R shoulder buttons are slightly harder to hit.

Overall, ignoring the minor drawbacks of GBA SP, no doubt it is the perfect game console for kids and elders alike.
