    I'm thinking about picking up a Game Boy Advance this week after reading about all the great games available over at ign.com. My one question is, what's the difference between a "cartridge save" and a "battery save"? Sometimes the reviews say one, sometimes the other and I find it a little confusing. I've never owned a handheld before, but I remember back in the old NES/Super NES days that saves were done on cartridges with a battery in them. Is this just two ways to say the same thing, or is there some sort of add on that I should plan on buying, like a memory card for the PS2?

    I'm pretty sure that both "battery save" and "cartridge save" refer to the same thing. All games are saved to the memory or battery in the cartridge itself.
