Classic Nintendo Gameboy for Sale

Original Nintendo Gameboy for saleNintendo debuted the original Game Boy in 1989, becoming the first hand-held video game console since the failure of Microvision 10 years previously. Gunpei Yokoi headed a design team who was responsible for the Game & Watch systems. Tetris, a popular puzzle game, was initially included with the GameBoy package. Following the success of Nintendo, several competing game companies also released hand-held portables around that time. Nintendo's major gaming competitors were the Sega Game Gear and Atari Lynx which had the first color LCD display for a portable. Although these competing systems contained more advanced technology, video game buyers did not like their faster battery consumption and lack of third-party developer support. As a result, Game Boy remained the highest seller of handheld portables into the early 90's throughout its lifespan.

Then in 1998, Nintendo updated its portable console and launched Game Boy Color in Japan that eventually sold over 11 million units in Japan and an astounding 49 million worldwide. The major advantage of the Color version was its backward compatibility with original non-color GameBoy cartridges, allowing it to debut with a large library of game cartridges already on the market. This capability became one of the main selling point of the new Game Boy line since Nintendo dominated its competitor with its vast gaming library. The top selling games during this handheld's lifespan were Tetris, the Pokemon game series, Super Mario Land, and The Legend of Zelda series.
