    Let me start off by saying that I am not a video game fanatic. However, I have pre-ordered a Game Boy Advance SP on the web. This unit is supposed to hit the streets on March 23rd, which happens to be a Sunday. Is it reasonable to expect this unit to be available on a Sunday? I am used to new DVDs and CDs hitting stores on Tuesdays. Do video game systems hit the stores on Sundays? It just seems odd to me for some reason.

    Nintendo have a habit of picking strange days for their system releases. A Sunday release wouldn't suprise me too much.

    EB is taking back original GBAs for $40 off an SP. My roomate recently turned his in for a Platinum pre-order, but was told that they were only pre-ordering Cobalt from here on out.

    Glad I wanted Blue! [​IMG]

    Nintendo released the GameCube on November 18, 2001, which was a Sunday, IIRC, and I believe the release date for the first GBA was June 11, 2001, also a Sunday, again, IIRC.

    It's so they don't miss the part of their audience that still needs to go to school... that way they can play with their games all day long on release day! [​IMG]

    Amazon lists the release as the 25th instead.

    EB says that they are shipping on the 22nd, so that means they will have it on Sunday. They even said that they are sold out of the Platinums for the 1st shippment... looks to be the "hot" system to get your hands on. Fortunate for me i already have my GBA: SP and i love it. They did a wonderful job with it, the light is awesome! it lights the whole screen, and the buttons and everything are great! Looks like an easy winner! So Sunday it is!
