  New tiny GameBoy is unveiled
Updated 07 January 2003, 15.23
The new GameBoy Advance SP
A new GameBoy not much bigger than your mobile has been unveiled by Nintendo.

The GameBoy Advance SP is tiny and it opens and shuts like a little laptop computer.

To keep up with the ever-increasing gaming wars, the new one's got a 10-hour battery life and can be recharged like a mobile phone.

Three colours

This latest version's better lit than the original GameBoy Advance, so it's easier to play in the dark.

The original GameBoy Advance
Some gamers moaned that the older version had a short battery life and poor lighting.

And it comes in three colours - silver, blue and black.

The GameBoy Advance SP goes on sale in Japan on 14 February, but should be on sale in the UK around 28 March.

Nintendo aren't saying how much it'll cost but it's thought to be about 90.
