Picked up a Gameboy advance for the little one, thinking games would be cheap, but Christ they go for a fair bit on Ebay, especially the Sonic and Mario Games.


Anywhere that sells cheap games?

Get yourself a flash cart like an EZFA II or better...

Nah, some go fairly cheap.

This lot went unsold.

That is just one game being sold. Not all of them.

A Cartridge that allows you to play Roms you download on your PC, it can also be used for an emulator but I dont quite know what could run on a GBA

Anything 8-bit basically.

There's also some astonishingly good homebrew like the REALLY excellent "Blast Arena Advance"

I got my "Dev kit" from here: http://www.jandaman.com/Merchant2/merch ... =GBADEVKIT

If I remember correctly, it is a canadian shop, but doesn't charge too much for postage. Seem to all be sold out now though, but its well worth getting one, there is some excellent homebrew games available for free too.

Don't really know why they call them a "Dev kit" though. Don't really think most people use them for "Developing" anything.

DealExtreme got the EFA Linker Simple for $22:

One of the best 'devkits' for GBA. The simple version is without the RTC clock chip though.

Is £35 good for a brand new - from the shop - GBA micro? (it's not pink...)

I use an EZ-flash 4, but I'm kinda wondering about getting one of these as well. Do you know how much save space there is on the cart? I can't seem to find anywhere that tells me on the interwebs.
