Sounds interesting, but will depend on the quality of it.

It's only available for preoder now, so I guess we'll have to wait and see what people who get it think about it.

I got my Lynx out today and found an old Gameboy in a box next to it.. This is an original Gameboy, never knew i had this but it got in there somehow lol..

My lad could not believe the size of it, we had a bash on the few games i have including Tetris.. I have this at work now, might as well use it more and show my love of retro of lol..

In fact a few guys at work said "oh wow, not seen one of them for years" and a few said "what the hell is that" lol.

Nice find! It's primitive looking today for sure, but Tetris is still great on it :113:

Pokemon Go for Android and iPhone has reminded me of another classic in the Game Boy library: Pokemon Red and Blue. The game was truly a milestone in handheld RPGs. I still have my Game Boy Color, but the screen has faded over time and it's not quite as enjoyable to play. Luckily, I own a Super Game Boy and can play all my cartridges through my Super Nintendo to experience it on the big screen. The Super Game Boy really does open up the entire Game Boy library. Some of those indie games look pretty good, Trek. I wonder if they'd be compatible.

Many times the games are compatible for play through Super Game Boy so it may be worth a try.  :)
