  • Breakthrough
    In the late 1980’s, the Nintendo Game Boy was created and was a huge triumph for Nintendo, selling over 100 million devices.
    Nintendo was able to maximize its profits, selling the games separately from the game boy.

    Nintendo Game Boy (1989)
  • Since the Game Boy was such a hit, it created rivalry.
    Manufacturers like Atari’s Lynx, Sega’s Game Gear and Sega’s Nomad became rivals to the Game Boy.

  • Competition
    Atari’s Lynx
    This console had good sound with a full color screen
    Its most distinctive quality was that it had a "FLIP" option
    But it was much more costly and a lot bigger than Nintendo‘s reasonably priced unit.
    3
    Atari Lynx (1989)
  • Competition
    Sega’s Game Gear
    This also had a colour screen with a large battery pack.
    It was able to keep its price down to a more affordable cost at $149.
    3
    Sega Game Gear  (1991)
  • Competition
    Sega’s Nomad
    It was basically a handheld version of the Genesis console.
    But again, it could not top the Game Boy as it had short lasting battery life and was quite bulky.

  • Again, in 2003 Nintendo modernized the Game Boy and introduced the Game Boy SP which acts like a flip phone

  • Conclusion
    The development of handheld video game consoles began slowly but rapidly evolved due to new innovations and demand, becoming an extremely successful industry.
    The first hand-held gaming device was inadequate, but better than nothing. In order for companies to keep up with the demand, constant upgrading was required in order to stay alive. People were happy with them for a little while, but the gaming community was even more eager for newer and better qualities. From occasionally playing with these consoles, handheld video games has become an addictive hobby.
