"Tribal" GBA SP for Europe

Quote:
Nintendo has today announced it will release a limited edition "Tribal" Game Boy Advance SP console in Europe on June 18. The console will be available for a limited time only, and is expected to retail for the same price as other GBA SP models.

"We feel we have created a product in the Tribal Edition that reflects the sentiments of today's youth--rebellion, attractiveness and spirituality," said Tim Freystedt, European marketing manager for Game Boy Advance at Nintendo. "The new console allows gamers to express these emotions in a fun and interactive way, enabling them to communicate their individuality."

"The tattoo pattern on the console looks pretty cool," added Mister Cartoon, tattoo artist for celebrities such as 50 Cent, Eminem, Justin Timberlake, and Beyonce. "Tattoos are huge at the moment--everyone wants one. I think the console is great and will be a huge success with the more individual gamer."

No North American release for the "Tribal" GBA SP has been confirmed at this time, but we'll bring you more information as soon as it becomes available.

The most unimaginative way to boost sales...ever (open to argument of course ). Plain and simple, it's a GBA with a few stickers on that are no doubt eventually going to wear away anyhow. To me it looks tacky.

Bah, I'll wait for the Classic NES style GBAsp to get shipped... I'm sure that one will be worth a helluva lot more in the future.

looks pretty neat, but there's not very much to the decoration at all, just a few patches...

I think it would look better with a black base and a red tribal.
