    Ever wonder what would happen if you connected a generation-1 Gameboy to a NES cart? The RetroVision does just that, allowing Gameboy games to be played on a NES or NES Clone (FC Twin, NEX, and Retro Duo clones). All of the peripheral ports are still accessible, meaning you can hook up the Gameboy printer and camera as well as use the headphone jack. The cart features a Ciclone multi region lockout chip thus providing support for NTSC, PAL A/B, and Asian Systems. If you haven't heard of this before head over to the source page and check it out.

    Now all I need is an NES...even though I already have a gameboy...

    I still need an NES, the retro gamer in me is dying of impatience.

    I really want one of these now even though I have a gameboy and GBC readily available I still want to buy one, even considering the price of it.

    I don't really see the point. Game Boy emulation is on everything, it's perfect on my PS3. What I'd love to see is a drag on drop mico sd Game Boy cart. If they really wanted to do something cool that would be it.

    Interesting from a "cool device bro" kinda way, but utterly pointless in a world that already has Gameboy Players out there. Not to mention Super Gameboy.

    There was some available two weeks ago, but he produce them only in very small batches, like 5-10 per batch then it's sold out for a little while.

    Ahhh, Gameboy Printer Support and GameBoy Camera [​IMG]

    I have both, should be fun to use, the only problem is, GB Printer paper is very hard to find today :/ (still have a few rolls spare)

    No it's not.

    This thing still doesn't support sound directly to the television, right?

    Remember when I said I did know when there was some in stock? That's because I was here at the right time, and I bought one! [​IMG]

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Yes this thing is made of pure electronic pr0n, and the back look scary with all those wire going everywhere (well actually it's just the rewiring of the video signal mostly).

    It works on FC Mobile II, yes it's stupid to play gameboy on an handheld nes playing gameboy... but still great.
