Anyone Want a Game Gear?

Post by DaMadFiddler » Tue Jan 05, 2010 4:16 pm

The thrift store I frequent downtown has a Game Gear in their electronics bin. It's just the unit and a cartridge (I think it's Mean Bean Machine), no batteries or manuals or AC adapter. If anyone here wants it, I can go back for it on my way home from work and send it to you for around $15 plus shipping.

Yeah, it's true that Game Gears are a dime a dozen at cheapo places. I bought a Game Gear, 5 games, a battery pack, AC adapter for it, and external handler thing for $10 at my local Good Will a couple months ago.

[shrugs] I just saw it, and thought I might want it. This topic can be locked now; I was back at the store yesterday to grab a couple of things, and the Game Gear was gone.

If they were still doing analog TV signals over the air and it was a game-gear that was compatible with the TV Tuner, I'd take you up on it.

Same. It's pretty damn disappointing that a lot of analog-only technology has become obsolete.

My understanding is some of the local UHF stations are still around. So you might be able to pick up local analog signals still.
