I recently found these 2 GBA Gamesharks at a yard sale, it seems like some of these are pretty rare while others aren't. Anyone know what the difference between these two are? I'll probably keep one and trade the other, anyone know which one I should keep?

Another question, can the Game Genie for original gameboy be used on the GBA?

I don't have a clue. The one I used to have doesn't look like either of those.

Not sure why so many different kinds were made.

yeah I just noticed the clear one has a usb port on the side. It looks like they are all pretty expensive too. If I remember correctly on the gamecube action replay there was one version where you could input and save your own codes and a later version that only let you use what codes were already built in....maybe that is the deal with these?

There's usually different revisions, the one on the left looks older and was probably made for the original GBA (there is some Action Replays out there with the same shape and mold) while the one on the right was made for the GBA SP.

The clear one is pretty outdated. Hardware wise, it's exactly the same as the clear Action Replays (with USB). You can actually use the Action Replay PC software (link below) to turn it into an Action Replay (v3.3). The software can also be used to update the code list and backup save files from some GBA games.

Software wise, the black one is pretty much the same as the one pujolsfan linked to. It can handle more complex codes than the clear model, so it would be the better cheating device, but it can't be used to backup save files. Also, the software on the black model is easily corruptible. If you activate too many codes at once, it may not boot up anymore.

If you don't plan on turning the clear one into an Action Replay, or don't care about backing up your save files, I'd keep the black one.

Thanks for the info, it seemed impossible to find any info about specific models anywhere on the web. Is there any advantage to turning the clear one into an Action Replay 3.3?

Codes would be easier to find for the v3.3, and it comes with a much bigger code list than the GameShark has now. If you just wanted to backup save files, you could use the GameShark PC software.
