    GBA Sp

    If you want the best device in the entire world, its gonna be the Sony PSP. But until that hits shelves here (if ever) its gotta be the Nintendo GameBoy Advance SP. Its small enough, sound quality is OK, resolutions are good, pretty fun even at times. It's got a nice Li-ion batt that can deliver about 10 hours of gameplay on a 3 hour charge with the light on and about 18 hours without it. Its compatible with all Ninetendo Game Paks for the GameBoy, GB-Color and GBA can be used. Not to mention the HUGE collection of games that you can find starting from 300 bucks to almost 2000 bucks. I vote GBA-SP. I didn't like the NGage QD all that much, after playing Hero Commander on the NGage Mobile Buses here. I bought the GBA-SP for around 4.5k a long time back. Maybe prices have dropped now that the prices in the US have dropped to $75. As for links, Google it, you can find more info than from links we supply here. :D It remains to be seen whether Nintendo DS or the PSP garners more support. I guess it'd be the PSP. Big surprise there, huh? :D

    GBA is the best rite now I think but wait till the Sony PSP comes out, I think that will re-define hand-held gaming like the PS2 which re-defined console gaming

    GBA SP is the best right now....nintendo has een the best in the handheld market....sony PSP looks really good but it will b priced at around $350 and might not b a good option...i read somewhere that it has more power than the PS2....nintendo DS looks very promising too....but until then GBA SP is ur best option..it retails 4 $79.99 (before taxes) out here...

    Definitely the GBA SP for now. The psp is sure to capture the market when it is released. However sony has to do sumthng abt the price. Otherwise the Nintendo DS will give it a tough time !

    Dude i have a GBA and its rocks.... but since the time i've seen my friend nishant having a Sony PSP i feel like i'm playing with a old brick display video game.
    I think PSP is legally not available in india.You acn get it from your relatives from abroad or think of getting one from the grey market ( Only if you dare to ).

    Till the time you PSP is not available GBA is a good option.

    Ngage is the only one that lets you play multi player on-line games right now. With the built in phone using GPRS or blue tooth and your PC's Internet connection. Kids go for handheld. Which kid has $350 to spend? Thats why they price them under $100 and $200 max and then hook the kids up with it and they can bug the parents to pay $50 for the games for it.

    I am not sure the PSP will sell. Not @ $350 and no Internet connectivity. You have to be professional to afford to buy that and you would want to use it like a PDA. Adult pros are not going to be playing 1st person shoot em ups on the train ride to work, rather they would be looking to play RPG types and seeing what their opponents did during the night. They will sell a lot in the beginning just because people want the best gadgets but there will not be continuity like the GBA's.
