    The box design and price for the Game Boy Advance were announced recently, and here is a picture featuring 3 colours (Cobalt Blue, Jet Black and Platinum). The portable will be selling for 12,500 yen in Japan on February 14; and $99.99 in US on March 22.

    maybe it will not be that expensive in Europa, Nintendo just got bunged for having too high prices, they paid 300000000$ or something like that!

    don't import it guys if you import it you get the wrong AC adaptor because other countrys has other Viltage etc just buy it lokal and get the games via your flash linker eeprom (to save your $)

    I gonna get mine at the end of February from Lik-Sang.com for £78.98. Not bad, eh? Oh, and if you import it and the AC Adapter doesn't fit, use a plug adapter. (Like those things you take with you to plug english things in on holidays) [​IMG]

    has anyone noticed this or is it just me?
    why would people with out a ADVANCE system get the 100 dollar one
    when you can get the 60-50 dollar else where(walmart, funco, etc)
    i thinks sales will be low to strart

    The voltage difference is negligable. I've never heard of import GCN burning out because of the voltage difference, have you? Plus thats what the AC adapter does. It regulates the power going to the GBA to an acceptable level.

    not only that. On the back of the AC adapter it says "AC Adapter JPN/US"
