Collection: Game Gear

The Game Gear is an 8-bit handheld game console released by Sega in 1991 throughout North America. It has a full-color 3.2" backlit screen with a landscape format, and is able to display up to 32 colors at a time from a total palette of 4096 colors.

It was the only handheld gaming system to have an add-on TV-Tuner. The TV-Tuner accessory for the Game Gear actually allowed players to watch television on their handheld system. It would plug into the system’s cartridge slot, and had mono A/V input. This meant that you actually could turn the Game Gear into a 1990s-spec television that you could use a VCR, camcorder, or another gaming console with.
