With the popularity of the GBA, I don't get why there are reports of the handheld being difficult to make money off of. That and apparently GBA game development is at an all time low (since launch, that is).

Me either. Hell, Nintendo sold 4 million Pokemon games already, and from what I understand they've sold over a million Metroid Fusion units. Plus you consider the relative development costs to a home unit game and... geez.

I second that, if even 1/3rd of the GBA titles were on the GC - in some form or another - it would instantly make the GC a must-have.
