Product Description

A cool blast back to the past, this retro Game Boy Advance SP Classic NES Limited Edition features a color scheme that matches the look of the original NES controller. But it will play any Game Boy, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance game. As a further salute to gaming history, Nintendo is also re-releasing versions of 8 classic games that accurately emulate the originals first released in the 1980s. The games (sold separately) include favorites like Donkey Kong, Pac Man, Super Mario Brothers, and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Nintendo, how I worship thee June 8, 2004
By A.L.F.
Being a child of the mid to late 80s, a Nintendo was my life for much of my youth. Fond memories of Mario and Zelda and Tetris abound. As the Nintendo (what everyone calls an NES these days, but back then it was just a "Nintendo," then the SNES was the "Super Nintendo") was a beautiful piece of work, so is this GBA SP.
I had been putting off getting an SP. I'd bought a GBA when it came out, and by golly it was good enough for me until the DS. But a chance meeting with a preview article of the Classic Series melted any reservations I had about re-buying a Gameboy.
As I write this, the beautiful, sensual GBA is sitting on my desk. I will not lie about my fervent Nintendo fangirlism, so the rest of this review will probably sound kinda weird to any of you new-generation Sony worshippers.
The sleek lines of this handheld blow me away every time I look at it. Surely it is superior to every previous iteration of the SP. The slightly shiny silver outside - complete with a row of lines representing the top of the NES console. A classic red and black Nintendo oval logo complete the top half. The bottom as you may expect remains true to its roots as well. But the real prize is inside the flip-top screen.
Open up this GBA SP and prepare to remember why Nintendo is your god. The original Nintendo controller represented in new, squareish glory. The D-pad and buttons are a bit different, sure, but everything else makes me want to dig up my old controllers and stare at them, then switch to the SP, then switch again. It's really beautiful.
The SP, even with the new improved backlight, does kinda sit a bit uncomfortably in your hands compared with the first GBA. Plus the headphones thing (where you need a special adapter, etc). BUT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia + SP Hardware = A MUST Buy! June 18, 2004
Every Game Boy I've owned (and I've owned them all - original, pocket, color and the original GBA) has left me disillusioned and disappointed. I was particularly crushed when the original GBA was almost impossible to play due to its unbearable lack of a backlight.
Now my hope in Nintendo and pocket gaming has been restored with the GBA sp. A movable screen to avoid those nasty reflections, a rechargeable battery pack and (praise the almighty Miyamoto) a backlight make this the most enjoyable piece of portable gaming hardware I've ever owned.
Even with all of these improvements I was still hesistant to buy in once again. That is, until the release of the classic NES edition. The new look is both sleek and retro - perfect for playing those 2D 8-bit and 16-bit games I loved in college.
Call me a sucker for a gimmick, but for once I'm not experiencing buyer's remorse. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars You know you want this... June 7, 2004
... if you're old enough to remember the NES, and remember it fondly. The Gameboy Advance SP has delighted casual and hardcore gamers alike for over a year as it saves them money on batteries and allows them to see GBA games at their full visual potential. It's portable, durable, comfortable to hold and fun to play games on.
The Classic NES Edition has all of these advantages in a slightly modified casing made to please the eyes and hands of older gamers. When closed, the system resembles a vintage NES in miniature, from the darker-grey lower portion to the mysterious rubbery streak along the right hand side.
When opened, players get the visual quality of an SP screen affixed to the look and feel of a classic NES controller, as the inner surface around the recessed D-pad and buttons has been coated with a textured black plastic that recreates the feel of original NES controllers, with the buttons restored to their rightful shade of red.
If you're a fan of retro video games or just Nintendo in general, you'll like the Classic NES Edition SP: it gives you the gaming power of a Playstation with the look of a vintange Nintendo in the size of a Klondike ice cream bar.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best GBA yet! August 22, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played my friends GBA's and had fun playing them. The only thing stopping me from buying one was how kiddish the system seemed. Once Nintendo released the NES Edition GBA, I went out and bought one. It's a modern console where us retro-gamers can show our retroness. The system is designed to look like the NES - It has the red-and-black logo on the top, the stripes, and the textured feel of the classic controller, which I love. needs more detailed pictures - the pics here do it no justice. If you played and loved the NES, get this system now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible nostalgia! June 16, 2004
The Limited Edition Gameboy Advance SP is a great way to rekindle the good 'ol days with your NES. The game pad of this GBA SP is similar to your original NES controller. If you were a gamer in the NES days this is the perfect nostalgia gift. The most grand of all the nostalgia.
This also makes for the perfect console for the "Classic NES Series". The buttons even feel like that of the original NES controller. The LCD fold down screen also has a reminder. Look at the LCD screen and it looks like the top of the original NES.
It also still contains all the GBA essentials. Those include an LCD screen fold down screen with a back light, an adaptor and the rechargable battery. As far as I know nothing has changed with how it all works.
Of course there is the one simple problem of already having a GBA SP and not wanting to pay 100 bucks for another one. The simple solution... if you don't want to pay another 100 dollars don't pay another 100 dollars! The only difference is the look of the SP. It still has all the same pros and cons of the original SP.
If you remember the original NES then yes, this is worth the buy to any old school gamer. If you don't want to shell out another 100 bucks just don't do it. The system is still great no matter which version you get. A great Classic look to play the 8 classic games.
