I have some fond memories of my Game Gear. I loved that giant hunk of sexy black plastic so much that I forgave its terrible battery life and the other aspects that led to its financial failure.
The Wizard, a 1989 movie starring Fred Savage, was little more than a 100-minute commercial for Nintendo's Power Glove. Surf Ninjas, a 1993 movie starring Ernie Reyes, Jr., Rob Schneider, Leslie Nielsen (doing his best M. Bison impersonation) and Tone Loc, was much the same for Sega's Game Gear handheld. Only it was way better.
When I was young I had a Game Boy. An older boy on my street had the Game Gear. I was jealous. Games on the Game Gear always felt like they came from some distant, technologically advanced future. I begged and pleaded, but my parents never bought me one! Now, Nintendo has announced it's bringing Game Gear games to the 3DS as part of the virtual console: the Game Boy and the Game Gear, together at last!
And more. If this doesn't give you an idea of how big the PS Vita is, perhaps comparing it to Ultraman would help?
Game Gear and the Turbografx are coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop. According to Nintendo, here are the first Game Gear titles, all with a (northern) "summer" release window: Columns, Dragon Crystal, Shinobi, Sonic Drift, Sonic The Hedgehog: Triple Trouble.
Sega's answer to the NES will soon be making an appearance on the Nintendo Wii as Sega announces the impending release of Sega Master System titles for the Virtual Console. SMS games will be showing up in Japan first, with Fist of the North Star and Fantasy Zone at 600 and 500 Wii points, with European and US releases to follow later this year. Sega also plans on distributing Game Gear and Sega Mark III titles along with the SMS favs. I have to admit that I never actually owned a Master System, which didn't quite take off here in the states, so I am looking forward to filling a gap in my gaming knowledge with delicious Sega goodness from back in the day while I patiently wait for them to start releasing Sega Nomad* games.
Master System Meets Wii * - Yes, that was a joke.
