Encyclopedia > Game Boy Advance Video

Game Boy Advance Video is a format for putting video onto Game Boy Advance cartridges. The video is played using the game system's screen and sound hardware. These games are from Majesco Sales. The video cartridges are colored white for easy identification, similar to how the Classic NES Series games were a light gray. Because of the low capacity of GBA cartridges (ranging from 32Mb to 256Mb) and the length of the video content (feature length movies), video is heavily compressed. The image quality has the appearance similar to early Cinepak compression. Also, in the case of which the episode is available as a 45-minute two parter or a 22-minute edited version, the 22-minute version is used (this was noticable in the Strawberry Shortcake video, which when compared side-by-side to other formats on which the video is released, a noticable amount of missing scenes is apparent).

Criticism

Some fans have criticized the video paks as being inferior to DVDs of the shows in several ways. For example, the paks only contain two episodes; a single DVD can hold as much as thirteen. Additionally, there has been criticism on the limited amount of shows featured in the collection, all of which are popular kids' cartoons from the time the paks came out.


Also, many sites have weighed criticisms that GBA Video was only playable on a GBA and Nintendo DS, thus forcing consumers to pay twice for the same product to watch it on a full screen. (Once on DVD/VHS, once again on GBAV) This is similar to the complaints lodged against Sony's UMD media format for movies. This article or section is not written in the formal tone expected of an encyclopedia article. ...


It is noted that on the Strawberry Shortcake video, the episodes featured were versions edited down to 22 minutes each, while the release of the episodes in videos of other formats run for 45 minutes each. When compared side by side, scenes missing from the GBA video release becomes apparent.
