OVERVIEW

This 8-Bit power house was released nationwide on April 24th, 1991 in the United States. Sega Genesis was well established by then, and steadily gaining it's share of the gaming market. With Nintendo releasing it's first handheld gaming console a couple years prior, the Nintendo Game Boy, Sega wanted to answer that success with innovation of their own. Enter the Sega Game Gear. The first portable console under the Sega umbrella. While this handheld came with a more natural shape to hold, and a LCD screen that was also backlit, it had it's own set of hurdles to overcome. The console required six AA Batteries to run, and it would eat through those in a matter of 4-5 hours. Facing competitors such as the Turboexpress, the Atari Lynx, and the infamous Game Boy, Sega unfortunately was left with a mild financial success in the Game Gear. Sega discontinued the console in 1997. Majesco did build and release a second run of Game Gear consoles in the year 2000, with a Sega license of course. But it never could quite catch Nintendo's Game Boy. The innovation was there, but the limitations of the battery, and port heavy library, ultimately put a stop to the potential the handheld had.
