REDMOND, Wash., June 9, 2003 – Nintendo of America Inc. is reaffirming the status of its new Game Boy® Advance SP as the hottest selling video game system in the United States. More than 1.1 million units of the new self-lit, flip-top portable unit have sold in America less than 10 weeks after its introduction. The new model has sold at a rate of more than 10 per minute, non-stop, since launch.
That is some freaky sales figures, over a million units in 10 weeks !

Damn thats a lot of sales... Especially in 10 weeks. I wish I had the money for one. And yes that red one looks sweet. I hope I can get one before Megaman Battle Network 3 comes out.

Sorry to remove your link, Nintendo have a very tough stance on emulators and so on, and because of that I'm asking you not to link to them on here.
Can Websites and/or Internet Content Providers be Held Liable for Violation of Intellectual Property Rights if they are Only Providing Links to Illegal Software and/or Other Illegal Devices?
Yes. Personal Websites and/or Internet Content Providers sites That link to Nintendo ROMs, Nintendo emulators and/or illegal copying devices can be held liable for copyright and trademark violations, regardless of whether the illegal software and/or devices are on their site or whether they are linking to the sites where the illegal items are found.
Taken from Nintendo Corp legal notes.
So to prevent us from getting any grief here, please don't post any more emu links, thanks. :)

Where can i get a black GBAsp in America? I see them on forigen sites but not in American ones! I'm putting out for a black one.

Just wait until it hits the shelves... (unless it has already). I haven't been keeping up with it too much because I've already bought a Platinum GBAsp. :D I think I'm gonna buy either the black one or the red one sometime soon, too. ;)

Damn, I wanted to tell everyone about this great emu site (http://www.aea-emu.org/) :(

Emu burgers, nummmmmy :)
/to get back on track, I wish I'd held out for a coloured GBAsp, my local stockist only had the regular silver model in, I think in time the silver GBAsp will become as common as the regular old grey gameboy from all those years ago.
Course if anyone wants to swap me one, or perhaps even buy me one, it is my birthday in 2 days and all gifts will be greatly recieved :)
