The gameboy, of course, ate up the handheld market and I bought one for the likes of mario and zelda.

Just found my Gamegear the other day.

Carrying case, 3-4 games, powerplug.

I still need to see if it works, but we didn't use it a ton back in the day. So many games I could get for it now.

I have my game gear. Works great but I recommend replacing the screen with LCD. Find parts on eBay. It's worth it and get's rid of the blur. Also works awesome for the Sega Nomad.
