Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

To celebrate the best year in the 14-year history of the Game Boy video game system, Nintendo announced a new, limited-edition, two-tone version of the popular Game Boy Advance SP. These special models, available starting Feb. 9 at an MSRP of USD 99.99, will have Platinum bases with Onyx lids, for a silver-and-black look that's sleek and unique.

With more than 40 per cent of Game Boy Advance SP players over the age of 18, the system is enjoying an expansion toward an older demographic, said George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. It's easy to see how these celebratory silver-and-black versions will appeal to an older audience. And with a limited supply, they're likely to become collector's items.

November proved to be another very good month for the Game Boy Advance. The Toy Retail Sales Tracking Service (TRSTS) reports that the Game Boy Advance sold more than 1.3 million units. To put that in perspective, that's more than 50 per cent more Game Boy Advance units sold in November than PlayStation 2. As the hottest-selling game system in the world, total U.S. sales for Game Boy Advance in 2003 are expected to top 8 million.

fun poker, YOUR A WANKER. 3rd year. Righttttt. Your just some geek wanna-be welfare case with a 4 year old PC. Your whore crack head mommy had to f**k and suck 50 johns to buy that PC for you, so be greatful to her and pop and squeeze those puss sores on your mommies pussy lips with your teeth. She loves you.And who in their f**king right mind would put your dumb ass in a co-op program? Maybe a program that specializes in ass licking and reach arounds. The same co-op program your mommy receive her degree in. That seems to be your expertise. And i would assume if you DID go to University(which you don't because you're a f**king WANKER) it's some community university inwhich all the text books are written in crayon. And someone like you would not have to pay tution at all. Not because of your brains. You have none, but for the fact that you suck c**ks and lick dirty shitty male assholes at the faculity.1 more year to go. Then you get your degree in corn holing' 101 from a division 4 university you sucked off your father to send you to.

First off, I'm Canadian. Second, I live in Toronto, so guess which University I'm at. Lastly, I don't blame you, cause you have a good reason to be jealous/envious. There are always people like you two who love nothing more than to start an argument just to piss people off. Trash from trash doesn't mean anything to me, your a bunch of nobodies (xxxtr, HAJI).

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

fun poker you must go to the University of Toronto then or York. You must be some PC geek then with no life and no G.F.'s to speak of. HAJI and that other guy is right. You will just get a degree in ass licking and sucking. And no where not jealous of your wide asshole, your just a d**k head. Go to a real university pal.

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

Anonymousat 7:50 22/12/2003I didn't know that UofT offered such a degree, did you take it before, in the ass?you called me a geek, is that a complement? stop it, stop raving about my high intelligence, it's embarrassing and makes you look less intelligent in front of the others.no life? Gee, I wonder if being well educated, obtaining a prosperous career with a lot of money, enjoying the field of work I do means "no life". Have you been to university? There are girls there and rather attractive ones too. I'm more of a lady killer than you'll ever be cause you have "no life".

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

this is hilarious, you f**ken retards are blasting the shit out of eachother over a f**king gameboy. why cant you all just drop the 'but thats just your bias opinion' bullshit already and realise that yes, it is their opinion, thats why they said it, and thats why this forum is here. to share opinions! if you dont like the 2-tone SPs, then dont buy one, if you do like it, then get one! f**king simple!why the f**k you are wasting time arguing and flaming eachother over stupid shit like this is beyond even the most intelligent of you, because you all still f**king do it, and do it poorly. so f**king what if the PSP is better, or if Ngage sells less to a certain demogrpahic, if you want one, buy one, and quit f**king whinging that someone disagrees with your uneducated, prepubescent bullshit opinion. heres a thought, if you want to have an HONEST opinion, base it on what YOU think, not what demographics and advertising tell you. MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND. then, maybe, just maybe, you will realise that you dont need to bitch that you were proven wrong, because its just your personal preference. you didnt leave out the features we all wanted, you didnt choose a shitty 2-tone color scheme, so let it go, the lot of you, finish f**ken high school and enjoy your life instead of working on that monitor tan.

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

fun poker you think your a lady killer? Plastic blow up dolls do not count. So listen carefully Bud Bundy. GET A LIFE. And the girls you refer to as attractive more or less stay clear of your zit faced pimple ass. Wake up out of your fantasy dreams.AND GO TO A REAL UNIVERSITY BUDDY. Not that pathetic house of learning you call a "school"

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

Anonymousat 9:42 24/12/2003Plastic blow up dolls are all that you can afford."GET A LIFE" *wine wine wine* will u shuddup already. what do you have that compares to mine? go on, spell it out. whats that? you have a basket of flowers, rainbow coloured shirts, tinted sunglasses, and some weed, your dam hippy cool brother. but seriously, tell me what you have, what is your meaning of life *laugh*.the only zits i have are on YOUR face.what university are you planning to attend? whats that, how did i know your not in university already? simple, your clearly a idiot that base his "entire" knowledge on what he sees on TV. geeks = not cool, look a certain way and not social. TV is okay, but it seems you specifically can’t handle it in the head, makes you no better than those retards who can’t tell fact from fiction when playing a videogame, as if looking at a monitor and using a mouse and keyboard wasn’t enough. you can't attend any university until you get a brain first friend. Then again, that’s okay, cause you wouldn't want to attend in the first place cause your a moron who doesn't see the value of education.fun pokerat 22:18 24/12/2003thats great just great, but if you want to stay clean, you should do what i do, shower. i don't take baths.

Do yourselve a favor and live forever under your mommas skirt or shot yourselve in the head cause thats whats the world its about.Thank fukkin God we have other systems that put shit like manhunt and are aware of what shit is happening.f**k you all

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

It fascinates me how out of control things can get when someone tries to poke fun at me (look far below for my original post that seems to have started intense hatred towards 'fun poker'). And oddly enough, I haven't seen him use any of the lame terminology that clutters up these forums so much. Why he would take offense to it, I have no idea... and hmmm, it seems that no one since then has really used ROFL, LOL, WTF, or any of that other unintelligible garbage. In any of 'fun poker's' real posts, I dunno, he seems not so bad... I wouldn't say he's gay, but the fact that some people might think so makes them quick to judgment, and therefore quick to retardism. Get a clue before you try to insult someone.

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

Any posts directed towards me, I have the decency to reply back, to acknowledge that I’ve read their posts. Mike, you need to be more tolerant. I personally don’t mind the phrases you mentioned, they are used all over the place. I find it a little overboard when people use “L33t” and other letter-number substitutions but that doesn’t mean I flame them. There are no hard set rules, unless explicitly stated. Don’t like “LOL”? No problem, go to the no “LOL” section of the internet. :Pthats right Mike, i'm not gay.note: you poked me first

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

Yeah, it's easy to be tolerant, but only to an extent. When people start to overuse phrases needlessly, then it gets weird. LOL, wow I bet they aren't actually laughing, and no one cares if they are or not. WTF... don't hide it behind letters, just say it!!! Tolerance is hard when so many ignorant people clog up the internet, but I digress. People can do or say what they want, I firmly believe in that, but it would be nice if ten year old kids actually said things that were relevant to topics. In this case, Nintendo... I have a gamecube, but my GB Advance got stolen by some bastards at work. Woo, the end.

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

"When people start to overuse phrases needlessly, then it gets weird"thats true"don't hide it behind letters, just say it!!!"letters are just letters, its the meaning thats important. letters are just a medium for communication. if the point gets through, it's ok by me."People can do or say what they want, I firmly believe in that, but it would be nice if ten year old kids actually said things that were relevant to topics."yes, context is important. this being a gaming forum, i thought it was appropriate to use terms found in multiplayer games, my original message had no relevance to the article, ill admit that. though, your original response was about my terminology.sorry about your GBA.i don't have a GBA myself, only console system i have is an old snes which i don't play anymore. you can still play GBA games without the real thing on the computer. perhaps you know what i'm refering to. if not, i can tell you how.

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

I think something we can all agree on: wankers who use pose as other people on forums should be taken out and beaten with a stick or soemthing. Damn, seriously..."if the point gets through, it's ok by me."It's only okay to me if they actually have a relevant point to make, like you might, fun poker. Anyone else, they go off somewhere to something that has no importance... and it's disturbing, and it ruins these forums that were once coo.Yeah, I miss my GBA, but I'll survive. Yeah I know aboot emulators, but still, nothing beats being able to have something to entertain yourself with at a boring day at work than a video game. *Sigh* I miss it terribly...But yeah, I dunno, this forum has become irrelevant, at least to nintendo and nintendo related things. So I'm going to stop replying... I hope you do the same, fun poker. Maybe we'll post in another forum one day. Later y'all.

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

First off,fun pokerat 1:43 28/12/2003""don't hide it behind letters, just say it!!!"letters are just letters, its the meaning thats important. letters are just a medium for communication. if the point gets through, it's ok by me."Let me say that lol, rofl, omg, wtf, roflmgdao, rolfmgdaotid, 2tm, 2tl and so forth are the most lame things one can ever abuse their keyboard into typing! Yes, as long as a meaning is being conveyed it is okay, but the aforementionened abbreviations have lost all meaning! When talking on microphones, people just say "looool" in a low, indifferent voice... So they have lost all meaning, which means they ought to be outlawed!Sorry to comment, maybe revitalizing this discussion once more, but I feel that fun poker is a pompous, snobbish prick, and I would like to know if his views on how life should be lead are caused by his aggravation in the situation he was put in. The quotation I mean to discuss is:fun pokerat 11:21 22/12/2003"no life? Gee, I wonder if being well educated, obtaining a prosperous career with a lot of money,[...] means "no life"."The aforementioned quote is the thinking of someone indoctrinated by family and government. I have naught but doubt that those thoughts are your own, for those are popular symbols of status! One, who rests in himself, will not need lady killing to make a name for himself! You just lowered yourself to the attackers' level! You only acquire an education, all the while attempting to bag ladies, so as to proclaim yourself a man with status, one that has "a life".That's idiotic, imo (a brilliant abbreviation btw(yet another one!)!).I would enjoy a reply!

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

“roflmgdao, rolfmgdaotid, 2tm, 2tl”, never seen those in usage. Perhaps you’re a fan of counterstrike, I know of no other major game with usual mic usage. I prefer tactical ops (UT mod), though I normally just play UT(played for around 5years I think, got hooked on unreal series since unreal 1).*laugh*, saying "looool" literally into a mic is pretty stupid. Again, context is important, anything used too often falls into redundancy. Or they were redundant to start with.Your right, those are values indoctrinated by society. As such, those are the guidelines which society uses to judge others with. If society judges me with those guides, I see nothing wrong with judging back with the same guides. As for the true meaning of life, there is none. This is why society created their own. Like me, hate me, you made me. :PYou are mistaken, I have not lowered myself. The meaning I intended to convey was that the girls flock to me, I don’t chase after them. The logic is as follows, if the women had a choice between a handsome man (ex. Average fellow) or a handsome man with greater status (ex. doctor), chances are, the doctor wins. There is nothing that an average man can offer that the doctor can’t, in both materialistic and non-materialistic terms. So the intended humor was that I get more girls even when I’m not trying.The only snobs are those that judge others unfairly, I have not done so.Anonymousat 17:19 30/12/2003i'm still waiting for that reply about whats so great in your life. you repetitive vegetable. *laugh*

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

Firstly, in Canada a political party exists, once called Canadian Reform A(some word beginning with an 'a') Party... abbreviated: CRAP . Am I correct? I wonder if you could tell me what the A-word was?Yes, Counter-Strike is one of the games I play... Knights of the Old Republic I've finished (Dark side of course! You oughta do it, you can do some sweeeet things as an evil player!!), so I'm slowly returning to Counter-Strike...fun pokerat 20:20 30/12/2003Your post at the aforementioned time I enjoyed! It gave me answers to all my questions. Thank you!However:"If society judges me with those guides, I see nothing wrong with judging back with the same guides."You see nothing wrong in judging back? Justifying what you do by arguing that others do it too is retarded, I feel. BTW do you not see the idiocy of these values? Especially when being from a country with so little help to people who cannot help themselves! Social services on the continent of North America are close to non-existent, and education is something you have to pay for, is it not? Therefore one cannot judge others on their level of education, for you do not know the person's background! Whether this person is poor or has a disease, which in almost any case would have ruined the person financially (no medicare), thereby rendering the person ineligible for an education, is something that could happen to any North American...Of course, what I would have you do rather than discussing this with me is the following:Study tax systems in European countries, Denmark first and foremost, and learn the lesson!Then you should go into politics, joining the left-wing party (I assume you only have one REAL left-wing party) and use some of that intelligence you are hoarding at your university...Another thing I would like you to do, though it is not your country, is the following:OVERTHROW BUSH!! Move to the US and write letters to every elected official, telling them how bad you feel about

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

Continuing from the last post...Bush being "elected" president!Have you ever read Michael Moores book "Stupid White Men" (the subtitle is "... and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation") ? Brilliant book, explaining the fraud and deceit performed by world-wide idiot George Bush! A quote from the book, regarding George Bush's alcohol abuse (it WAS an abuse... maybe it is now...):"George Bush said he didn't reveal the drunk driving charge because of what his dauthers might think of them. He had preferred they think of him as a man with numerous failed bussiness ventures who now executes people."

Gameboys will always sell more then anyother portable or console because of it's wide range appeal and gazillion games and most important..PRICE! All these new portable gaming systems coming out are more powerful and give more features but as history has shown and proven, systems like those never sell well. They cost as much as a console system! And still the biggest sales percentage of buyers of these hand-held systems are still parents. And as history has shown, parents will not spend $300+ on a hand-held when a console system cost less and a gameboy cost 80% less. Have you seen the sales for the N-GAGE? Brutal. And it will continue to do so. Adults will not spend that kind of cash for a novelity portable game system. PSP? Too expensive also when it comes out. Sell it for $99 bucks and then Nintendo will have a fight on it's hand. Otherwise, Gameboys will still dominate the market

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

Its the Game boy (Gay Boy)??? Hmmmm =P Its been out for longer than some of the Kids that post in the fourms here and has more game than X-box and Ps2 combined Its also Hand held How mank Kids do you see takeing there X-box or Ps2 for a walk down the parkAs for PS2 is getting old and blocky and pixelated so is The X-box and Game cube Pc rule. Dont belive me Than take a look at this[url removed]

Nintendo Flirting with GBA SP Adults

Price drives portable units. Period."ill buy myself a psp. Why would i make my parents buy it"That's you. Good for you. However as history has shown through thousands of thousands of Demographic research, parents purchase more game consoles, especially portables then all other age groups combined. And because of this, the cheaper hand-held always wins the sales.Remeber TurboGraphix16 hand-held? Best resolution. Best graphics. Great games. Played all the games from the big system also. It used the same cartridges or game chips. Very convenient. EXCELLANT T.V. tuner hook up. Easy hook up to a V.C.R if needed. FAILED. Why? Too expensive.Remember Sega handheld...it failed too...cost killed it...all more costly then the GameBoy. ALL WERE BETTER..BUT COST MORE........
