    I'm looking to buy a Game Boy Advance SP. They're pretty cheap, and I'd like to play some of the classic original Game Boy games. But I heard that they've upgraded the screen to make it brighter at about the time of the release of the Game Boy Micro. I'm wondering, which colors sports this bright screen? I know Pearl Blue and Pearl Pink has the bright screens, but they're not my favorite colors... There's a Graphite available, but does that one have the brighter screen?

    Thanks in advance...

    If you buy it in store the box should say "Now with a BRIGHTER backlit screen"....wikipedia says that they still make Pearl Blue, Graphite, and Pearl Pink. Along with some Limited Editions

    I'm buying it online. So I can't look at the box. Suppose Graphite is safe, since they still make it...

    I just recently (within the past 3 weeks) purchased a Graphite SP from Walmart.com and it came with the brighter, backlit screen.

    And boy, let me tell you, that brighter screen makes a HUGE difference! It is what the SP should have been all along. You will see colors that you never knew existed, and textures and items that couldn't be seen before because it was too dark will now just pop out at you!

    Yup, just like on the Micro or DS Lite :p . They really do bring some games to life too, Streefighter for one!
