I remember years ago wanting to buy music and games imported from Britain, and basically having to double the price to get a rough idea of what it was going to cost me in US dollars before shipping fees.

I don’t remember exactly where I got this beat to hell Gameboy Advance SP. Most likely at a garage sale, but I do remember not knowing if it worked since the battery was dead.

The case was cracked and had a small hole on top, but still worked just fine. Recently I dug it back out to play Metroid Fusion and saw from the separating top part of the shell it was finally giving up the ghost.
