    Hi, they have just reduced the price of these in the USA to $79.99. So apart from the battery charger for built in battery does anyone know if there are any other differences between the US and UK ones? I think you can get new UK chargers for about a fiver, has anyone got one and can recommend a retailer?

    My kids still use my original Gameboy and think its great!!!

    Thanks

    Dave

    No differeneces at all as far as I'm aware and all 3 Eur / Asia / USA can use each others games. I'm pretty sure Game do one of their own branded chargers it too.

    I bought a US SP when i was in the US in April. I bought the USB charger for a fiver from Game to charge my SP up, no problems at all.

    Really cool piece of Kit

    Ta, will get one there soon. I see you can now get them for around £64 over here. I guess they have reduced the price because the Nintendo Gambot DS is released soon in the US.

    Cheers

    I believe the relase date for the UK is sometime in November.

    I couldn't wait, however, and picked up a GBA SP for quite a reasonable price. I've been very happy with it. The commute just flies by.

    Off topic, but is there a soft reset on the GBA? I know there's no reset button, but can you reset with some button combination?
