The Sega Game Gear is a handheld 8-bit gaming system introduced in 1992. Its primary competitors were the Atari Lynx and Nintendo Game Boy. While the Game Gear offered gamers color and back lit handheld gaming at an affordable price, the short battery life and lack of software support and original titles held it back. It sold only 11 million units worldwide. Visit http://www.Sega-16.com, the best Classic SEGA resource and community on the net!
