This? It's apparently some sort of wireless link cable. it says that Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf green will be the first games to be compatible with it. Nifty.

I have not heard of that. Sound like it will be a cool accessory for the GBA.

Since I can't merge this thread with the other one, here I might wait for it to be merged, but in the meantime here's an article I posted.


Game Boy Advance Users May Go Wireless
Nintendo unveils wireless device that allows users to play each other without cables.

September 26, 2003: 7:07 AM EDT MAKUHARI, Japan (Reuters) - Japanese video game company Nintendo Co. Ltd said Friday it plans early next year to offer a device that allows GameBoy Advance users to play games together without the use of cables.
The device will be included free of charge with the purchase of one of two "Pokemon" games, due to be released early next year, for Nintendo's hand-held game machine.
"We've had a lot of discussions about how to extend the networking capabilities for games such as 'Pokemon', to enhance head-to-head battles, exchange of information and communication with others," said Nintendo President Satoru Iwata in a speech on the opening day of the Tokyo Game Show.
The wireless module will be bundled with Nintendo's "Pokemon Fire Red" and "Pokemon Leaf Green" titles for GameBoy Advance that will go on sale in Japan early next year. The games will sell for 4,800, or $43.
Nintendo said it planned to roll out other titles for the GameBoy Advance compatible with the device in the future.
Motorola Inc (MOT :Research ,Estimates ). designed the chip that powers the device's wireless functions.
"It was designed primarily with the gaming experience in mind," Bridgette Cosentino, director of wireless connectivity at Motorola's semiconductor products group, told Reuters. She said the chip was customized to maximize battery life.
Iwata said the technology was similar to Bluetooth, which allows devices to communicate with each other without a physical wire connection. The wireless network extends for "several meters," Iwata said.
The most recent "Pokemon" title for GameBoy Advance sold over 10 million titles worldwide, Nintendo said.
Shares in Nintendo ended up 2.33 percent at 9,670 compared to a 0.08 percent rise in the Nikkei 225 average.

That thread was already merged once, so it's probably best just to repost it as you've done here. That one was old and not even in this section. ;

It doesn't appeal to me too much though, a cable is fine with me.

Remember, Nintendo already has a wireless product (The WaveBird Controller) on the market. If they can make one wireless peripheral, then they can make lots!

Of course, I have found this information and made mention of it in this thread:
Fire Red and Leaf Green Confirmed News
As it seems, you can only chat and all with people in distance of the Wireless Adaptor Link.
