Portable Monopoly's Afterburner approaches the pre-ordering phase

Afterburner is the inauspicious name given to a US-made GameBoy Advance lighting modification, which is finally approaching fruition and as of tomorrow, is available to pre-order inside the United States. The hubbub surrounding the mod stems from the "prototype pics" on show at the project's website, Portable Monopoly. These clearly depict a strongly lit GBA unit displaying Advance Wars, and according to the team, this substantial improvement comes at the expense of a modicum of battery life. Pre-order details for our American readers can be found at the Portable Monopoly website, and we fully expect to find Afterburner modifications available through the usual grey market channels in due course.
