More info

The GAMEBOY (DMG-01) is a 8-bits 4th generation console, released in 1989 with black & white screen display.

It is the first handheld console in the Game Boy line, and was created by Gunpei Yokoi and "Nintendo Research & Development 1" : the same staff who had designed the Game & Watch series as well as several popular games for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Redesigned versions were released in 1996 and 1998, in the form of Game Boy Pocket, and Game Boy Light (Japan only), respectively.

The Game Boy is Nintendo's second handheld system following the Game & Watch series introduced in 1980, and it combined features from both the Nintendo Entertainment System and Game & Watch. It was originally bundled with the puzzle game Tetris.
The right-side of the device offers a port which allows a user to connect to another Game Boy system via a link cable, provided both users are playing the same game. The port can also be used to connect a Game Boy Printer. The link cable was originally designed for players to play head-to-head two-player games such as in Tetris. However, game developer Satoshi Tajiri would later use the link cable technology as a method of communication and networking in the popular Pokémon video game series.

It can read all kind of cartridges (DMG).
It is REGION FREE (EUROPE / USA / JAPAN) with all DMG games (B&W or Colors).
However, it won't read the specific Color Games (CGB cartridge type, without the notch).


The system requires 4 LR6 (AA) batteries or an AC adapter to play (not included).
