Gameboy Advance: Hello Kitty Version

Monday, July 14th, 2008

This is a really old Gameboy Advance model. Released December 25, 2001 in Japan. Hello Kitty fans will love this, whether they will use it or not. :)

Very hard to find, so most probably you’ll only find pre-owned units in online and specialty game shops.  So for those who missed this model or just starting with their Hello Kitty fandom better start looking for one before it’s gone for good!

Pikachu Gameboy Advance SP

Monday, February 11th, 2008

I couldn’t resist it…it was Pikachu afterall. @_@ I got this limited edition unit from the mall. Mall prices wasn’t so bad for this unit compared to specialty gaming shops. I also got some free games, accessories and 1 year warranty.

Rareness indeed, since this is an iQue unit. iQue is also owned by Nintendo but they only have units made exclusively for the China market. They even have a Mario edition, a Metroid version was also released but is hard to find now even in internet shops.

I think quality wise, iQue units are also good compared to their Japanese and American counterparts. But…but…almost everything is made in China now, right? Oh well, that doesn’t matter, just as long as it’s Pikachu! O_O Bzzzzt!
