Sega Game Gear (#2110)

The Sega Game Gear was released in 1991 and was an 8 bit backlit color handheld system. The pack-in game was Columns. It had a palette of 4,096 colors with 32 available onscreen. Not all models will work with the TV tuner adapter that was made for the system. If the serial number should start with a letter, then it won't work. If it starts with a number, you should have no problems. Here are a few different models of the Game Gear made:

Gray Game Gear Glass Screen - flat works with TV tuner
Gray Game Gear Plastic Screen - bubbled screen, will not work with TV tuner
Blue Game Gear - special sports edition that was released in 1993

Gray Game Gear 2000 - This is just like a normal Game Gear, but was reproduced by Majesco. The RGB ovals on the system were turned into gray ovals. Made of cheap plastic and the screen comes prescratched.

Virtua Game Gear is introduced in 2001-2002 for pocket PC devices. Some games include Baku Baku Animals and Sonic. Users probably won't see any sports games released as they don't intend to do any licensing. In the early 1990's Sega criticized Nintendo by comparing their superior Sega products to the older Nintendo products that were still on the market.
