Product description

Nintendo GameBoy Color - Light Purple Console

Amazon.co.uk Review

The Game Boy is that small, colourful hand-held video game system clutched by folks playing it everywhere. Popular among a wide age group, including a good number of airport-lounging power executives, theGame Boy has a true hard-core fan base comprising millions (and millions) of kids around the globe.

Nintendo's Game Boy debuted in the late 1980s and has since sold over 60 million units world-wide, far outpacing other hand-held game systems. With a catalogue of over 1,000 games and dozens of add-on peripherals, Game Boy is a monster of a hand-held game system, and a remarkably affordable one at that. Early March 1998 brought the release of the Game Boy Colour system, an upgraded version of the original. It is equipped with an 8-bit CPU, doubling the original Game Boy's computing power. The small LCD screen can display up to 56 colours simultaneously (out of a 32,000-color palette), delivered via boosted video processing memory that provides remarkably sharp and vibrant graphics.

The hundreds of available games vary from tremendously compelling to instantly forgettable. Quality or not, the entire library of games designed for the original system is playable on Game Boy Colour, but buyers should note that not all Game Boy Colour games will work on the original Game Boy system.

The Game Boy Colour system is available in an exotic array of colours and special editions. Accessories and add-on peripherals abound, enhancing the playing experience with vibrating feedback to in-game bumps and crashes, extra battery power and even a clever camera package that allows players to capture, tweak and print images.
