Gameboy Advance SP

I know I'm a bit late on this, but what does everyone think about this (soon to be) new arrival?

http://news.gameplay.co.uk/news/1041954576

worth shelling out $/£100 for?....again?

imo, this is what the gameboy advance should have been in the first place. it looks good, sure, but I wouldn't have minded some money back from my original gameboy advance... seeing as nintendo made a few mistakes with it!

It will be a vast improvement if you can actually see the screen.

How about a frickin' backlight Nintendo? Is that too much to ask???

the new SP has a backlight. the new lithium battery will help it last longer.....

cant say i was too bothered about it to begin with (the lack of backlight). my original gameboy was just as bad...

Yep I have one and you have to angle the light so it hits the screen at about 45 degrees. I use mine in the decompression chamber for long runs.
