    I'm getting one for my Birthday on Saturday, god that sounds sad.
    I'll try and give a comprehensive review sometinme next week, probably based around Mario Kart Advance.

    Graphics wise I think its along the lines af slightly better than a SNES, Super Famicon, whatever it was called in you're geographical region, not as good as the N64 or anything more complicated.

    I've heard complaints that since the screen isn't backlit you can only play it at midday with the sun directly above you.

    Check out nintendo's site, I should imagine the have some screenshots or footage.
    Lead me not into temptation... I can find it myself.

    I have one, and plan on getting another one soon.

    The only game I have right now is Rayman Advance.
    The graphics are great. The only problem I have
    with the GBA is that the screen is hard to see.
    It's not the size, it's the fact that you need to
    be directly under a light. They have lamps
    available though. I'll get one, eventually.

    It doesn't have territorial lock-out, so you can
    play imported games without any sort of mod. It
    also plays regular Gameboy games, and Gameboy
    Color games. It will also be used with the
    Gamecube for certain games... (like Sonic
    Adventure 2).

    Ooh, some of the games only require 1 cartridge to
    play linked. You can link 2-4 GBAs together,
    everyone can play, but you only need 1 copy of
    the game...

    Not to mention, DOOM is coming out next month.
    Yay! Linkable Deathmatch. Could there be anything
    more exciting? Especially while waiting for a bus.

    It's really cool. You should get one...

    By the way, you can get a GameCube and a GBA for
    the same price as an Xbox

    Please excuse spelling/grammar. I forgot to
    preview, and fixing the errors isn't as easy
    with 'edit.'
