    Toy and Television Games has listed their "flag ship product" on eBay for a whopping $399 buy-it-now. The product merges a GBA SP AGS-101 with arcade controls in an effort to make a true table top GBA SP experience. The creators of this product have put in over 300 hours worth of work. The design is intended for use on one's lap but will also work great on a desktop. The GBA SP is permanently fixed to the unit and can not be removed. For more information on this product be sure to check the auction page, linked below.

    I was thinking the same. You would be hunched over in the most awkward position as long as you were attempting to play it. Fantastic idea, but not ideal execution.

    The only way this would have been cool is if they put a 15 inch screen on it and totally hid the GBA.

    I wouldn't mind playing that one. Of course that's not for sale.

    Hmm - any1 read the reviews ... the first 4 all talk how great the Gameboy Advance SP is - but nothing about the actual arcade unit [​IMG]

    I thought GBA SP was a HANDHELD.
    Plus the price is outrageous.Its the same just playing it on a emulator.
    They could have atleast put a bigger screen not just gluing a GBA SP on arcade controls.

    ...wow, stunning! Except for the GBA part...>.<

    ...if it were something compatible for other handhelds available, it would be another story, but for GBA, I pass...

    I think it's pretty cool, they should sell cheaper kits minus the system so you can not only use your own system, but obviously make it so it's not fixed permanently. But if I had a gooder job, I'd spend $400 for it. Can't they pay me to invent words ?

    O_O Make for 3DS or something, why an outdated handheld?? This won't sell much, though we are forgetting that there are many mental people out there [​IMG] who would be willing to even sell their kidney to get their hands on this piece of crap. Looks stupid imo.

    I think I would do really good on Guilty Gear: Advance Edition if I had this.

    EDIT: Also, if they spent about 10 more hrs to install a TV out then it would be a lot more attractive.

    Meh, if that was a 360 or a PS3, I wouldn't even have thought twice, but a GBA for that price is just plain outrageous.
    I mean what the hell?
    They just put it on some arcade controls and increased the price ten fold.
    They didn't even bother to use a bigger screen. -_-'
