    Hi people

    Wandering around a local forum for selling second hand items I found an AGS-101 light blue for 60 USD, console and charger only. It's badly scratched on the outside, but the inside looks new, the screen doesn't have any marks. Is it worth it? I'd have to get a new battery (the current one should be pretty worn) and a new casing. Nintendo (Japan at least) still sold GBA-SP batteries some time ago, but just now their stupid online shop servers are under maintenance so I can't check (multi-billion dolar company doesn't have backup ones to keep running? :wtf:)

    Anyway, what do you say? Should I go for it? EZ Flash IV is back on sale (I found at RealHotStuff) for 40 and Pokemon Emerald carts are amazingly still being sold for 40 new, unopened box. That would be the one game I care most and has RTC.

    Any recommendations for sites selling AGS-101 casings? Any color would do, but pink is preferable :3

    I got my AGS-101 SP for less than $50 on eBay so if you looked there you could probably find not only a pink one that already has the casing, but probably less scratches too for cheaper.

    PS I would be cautious when purchasing Pokemon Emerald especially if they're unopened boxes and being sold online, that game is the most bootlegged game I have ever seen on the internet. Pokemon Emerald will also not run correctly on EZF4 for whatever reason.
