    I just got a GBA SP from a friend and thought I may as well pick up some games. Where can I find some online (except Ebay)?

    Why is eBay out of the question?

    No, GBA is region free. Also, you're more than likely going to find great deals on eBay or Craigslist from people just trying to make a few dollars. Alternatively, you could get a flashcart.

    There's an actual process you have to go through to get games on the device, play them etc etc, but this is the best one:

    Also, there's a new GBA SP clone coming out soon that should be better than the actual SP and comes with, AFAIK, 400+ games preinstalled.

    Don't want eBay?

    Well you can buy over-priced used GBA games via Gamestop.

    Games based off of failed Nickleodeon and Disney Shows that no one would want go from $5-$20. And games you might want to play are still $20-$30 most likely without box+Booklet. I mean does it make sense that a Zelda game is $20 and Dora the Explorer is $17? No.... But you don't want to do eBay so....

    (I'm just going to avoid reinforcing GBA flashcarts so my sarcasm can emphasize just how retarded it is to even consider buying used GBA games from an non-ebay source.)

    Its just I would pay 30 AUD for Zelda on Ebay... so I was wondering if there was anywhere else. I ordered Golden Sun from Ebay earlier today anyway for 25 AUD.

    Ebay is where I buy most of my CIB GBA games. Just be wary of counterfeit ones. The ones labeled Nintondo, Nintindo, ect. I have a few GBA flashcarts but I enjoy building a collection of boxed retail games.

    I don't actually buy gba games because they're all on my PSP, but when I was at Japan for vacation they had packs of 7 games for 1600¥! (20$) And the awesome thing is that they were GOOD games like mario and starfy.

    Yeah, buy from ebay or Amazon wait, 149$ for mario?
