My wife and I both have a GBA SP (front lit version). There are scratches on the screen on both of ours, and my wife wants the housing to be a different color (she wants a white one).

Anyone know where to get these items?

@pyrpmaniac123 There is a white gba housing. It came as the Final Fantasy Tactics console.

ebay has the screens covers which are what you need for 3 dollars a piece and they're real easy to install. I haven't seen a replacement white GBA SP housing though.

Can you buy the housing separately? I don't think so.

I know, which is exactly why I linked to a white/gray SP shell.

It's not even partially white, it's grey. You can't buy a white gba sp housing.

ah I see it now, my mistake. I'm not entirely sure if there's a site that sells custom white casing but as far as ebay goes you won't have any luck.

Your trying to argue out of this statement. You know what you meant, and I definitely know what you meant. In both cases you were wrong. Now own up to it like a man.

And both of you noobs need to learn how to edit your quotes.
you shouldn't edit quotes when someone has replied to them, it'll make the replier look like a jackass.

anyways we're getting out of subject here.

I was wrong about it not existing but I wasn't wrong in saying it isn't available for purchase as a separate item. You're acting as if I've wronged you in a very bad way.

edit : Own up to what? I didn't know that final fantasy console existed until you pointed it out. No need to act like an arrogant shit when someone makes a mistake.

It's not too hard to make one, though. The problem is that a molded white plastic will look a lot 'cleaner' than a coated one. Yeah, eachgame has tons of colors of GBA SP/NDS cases but not the one you want. Sorry, them's breaks.
