    Does anyone here know if the G6 Lite is compatible with the Gameboy Player (for Game Cube)??? [​IMG]

    Is there a compatibility list anywhere or do all GBA games work on it?

    Thanks!

    Huh...

    I was thinking about buying a Cube this weekend. So, I could play the GBA games on my EZ IV on the tube if I invested in the Gameboy Player along with it?

    Sure you can,
    but GBA games look much better on a GBA SP, possibly a backlit one.
    I have a GBA player and it was fun while my original - non lighted GBA lasted, but when I purchased the newest one I never felt like using it again(the player).

    the GBP is actually how I play my GBA games now.

    after getting a DS, the fact GBA games do stick out bugs me, and I like playing them on a TV, takes me back [​IMG]

    Well. That settles it. Playing Tactics Ogre and the old NES games I have on that cart alone sound like a worthwile investment.

    Guess there out of production.

    It topped out just under the cost of a Wii.

    Well I have one, in perfectly mint condition, along with a gamecube that I haven't touched at all since I got my Wii.
    Should I sell it, or wait until becomes a rare item and sell it on ebay ?

    Well, the used units were not so bloated in price, so you may want to hold onto it for a bit as they seemed to top out at around fifty bucks.

    Still, it seems as though gamestop is trying to unload gamecubes right now (got an e-mail cupon for one just a few days ago) so it may fetch a better price as its sure to spawn quite a few new owners of the system...
