am I the only one here that believes that nintendo will put out 193 more shovelware titles to bump this to 3000?
game looks cool,
There were only 3 releases in January, this is the second release of the month, and we're already mid-february.
With 3 games per month, if we need 193 games, it will take roughly 64 months, more than 5 years
I bet the DS will reach 3000 releases far before the GBA
I don't think the GBA will ever reach 3000....
All licensed games that are known to exist and that still appear to get a release sum up to a number lower than 20. And that already includes the rarest carts you might ever think of. Now taking the few kiosks (around 10) that haven't been checked (possibly there is something that doesn't match the retail one), unlicensed cheating-software and the unknown revisions that might be out there (there shouldn't bee too many though) we still won't even reach 2850.
There's also 3 or so currently undumpable GBA Videos. Known to exist, but no dumping utility yet made works on them.
[sarcasm]I MUST GET THIS SHOVELWARE IS AWSUM[/sarcasm]
Yes, 4 and I included these already. JPH claimed to have seen a few undumped games around - wonder what he's referring to.
Anyone else think this looks like Legacy of Goku?
I was about to say that...
Who knows? These last few games have been remarkably rare, Iron Kid in particular (which took over 6 months to dump).
I do believe so because look what happened with gameboy color, people still find misc. carts to dump. I have since lost track in numbering.
The title screen looks like a picture from a slot machine
This is because the same people who have constantly watched the GBA-output did the same research for the GBC - long after it's death. The GBC never got this treatment in it's lifetime. No chance for 3000, sorry.
I think you are taking things too seriously, I don't care if there is 3000 releases or not.
What ultimately killed GBA was the lack of Japanese development. Final Fantasy VI Advance is its last boxed game there, back in November 2006. A full year before the US releases trickled off.
yes, probably because in japan the GBA got much more replaced by the NDS. while westerners dont really buy as much NDS's (lack of good english releases)
Well imo a handheld still is mainly for kids so of course there's going to be a large install base of GBA in the US. There's plenty install base of DS too. But the reason for this shovelware is you can obviously tell from it that it is appealing to mothers of toddlers and the games are pretty G rated.
So... Was this game shipped to stores as usual, or by other means like online-only?
