    Hi ppl
    Its good to be back
    My aunt is coming from US and i want her to get me a GBA Sp
    The problem lies here
    In india we get these systems for a very high price but the games in here r for say asround 4-5$( GBA catridges)
    But when i checked the rates of the games in US its around 30$
    Wat is the difference btw the games available in india and US y r the games in india so cheap??/
    And also if i get the system SP from US will the games available in india work on that system??
    Thanks
    ( sry for posting a non topic thread in here but this is the only forum site where i can get my answers)

    All gameboy systems from the original black and white, through gameboy colour to GBA are identical the world over, ie they are not region locked and any game from any country will play on any system and are backwards compatible - GBA will play GB and GBC carts too.
    Hope that helps.

    i had asked this same question from the nintendo team this is wat they replied

    Please note that Nintendo hardware and software is to be used only in
    the country in which it was intended to be sold. Nintendo products have
    notices printed on the box letting you know in which country the
    product is designed to be sold and used. For example, Nintendo products that
    are sold in the United States have "FOR SALE, RENTAL AND USE ONLY IN
    USA, CANADA, MEXICO AND LATIN AMERICA" printed on their packaging.

    Before the release of the Game Boy Advance SP, travelers could play
    their Game Boy systems all over the world, as the Game Boys are
    self-contained units that can work on standard batteries. However, because the
    Game Boy Advance SP does not use standard store-bought batteries, and
    instead uses a rechargeable battery that must be plugged into a wall
    outlet to charge, it is highly recommended you purchase your Game Boy
    Advance SP in the country you plan on playing it. Electrical standards vary
    throughout the world, and using an outlet with an incorrect voltage
    could damage your system.

    If you are intent upon using a North American Game Boy Advance SP and
    the Game Boy Advance SP AC Adapter in another country, you will need to
    use a "step-down transformer" to alter the voltage from 220 volts to
    120 volts. This device plugs into a 220 socket, and the AC
    adapter/Battery Pack, plugs into that. You can purchase a step-down transformer in
    most travel stores.

    While it is true that all Game Boy software will work with Game Boy
    systems of the same series in other countries (regardless of which country
    they're from), we highly recommend that you purchase games and other
    accessories designed for the same region that your system is intended for
    use in.

    As for the big difference in prices for Game Boy Advance games, that's
    something we are unable to specifically answer. However, I can tell
    you that although Nintendo may set prices for our games, retailers are
    free to set their own prices for our products.

    For future product information, please contact your authorized Nintendo
    distributor for your country. To find your distributor, please visit
    the Corporate area of our web site at www.nintendo.com. Click on
    Company Connections, and then International and National Distributors

    Aft6er reading this wat do u say shoulod i go with the system from US
    And also r there any so called pirated Carts???
    Thanks for sparing time

    Oh you are still online. Log into MSN. I do not have Yahoo. I still haven't installed a Chip. You know that my mom is not supporting me. I just need a credit card.
