Would you recommend this product?
I have so many old games this would work with! Does it add color to Gameboy Games, or do those stay grayscale?

@jessi_wil11 So, I was there when Gameboy Color first came out.. and Nintendo is like "Oh, by the way, you know all those black and white games you've been playing? Yeah... they were actually in colour the wholetime, the screen just didn't support it."

@jessi_wil11 @rossdcurrie Whoah, I didn't know that! I was trying to figure out how that worked for the longest time. Didn't realize that GameBoy games were just always color.

@jessi_wil11 the same question for makers!

Nice. Do you have any plans to sell cartridges as well?

@mildredalex4 fine print at the bottom says it explicitly supports legacy cartridges and doesn't play roms... so presumably you have to find old cartridges, but my guess is you could probably play roms using a flash cartridge (you know, for all those indie gameboy games)

Another example of nostalgia tech. Nokia 3310 and Playdate are a few other examples. Thoughts on Analogue Pocket? Would you buy it?
I'm definitely buying one for myself
I'll buy one as a gift
Ummm, not sure
No way

@rrhoover 100%, this looks amazing. Of all the retro consoles, GBA is the best ones to get imo, so this is perfect. Already looking up which games to buy and replay again

Feels very Teenage Engineering. And the price point is perfect.

I'm a nostalgic guy and I really like your product, but it is way too expensive for me ...

Love the product, hate the name. There's already a well-known bookmarking service called Pocket.

I wonder is Nintendo going to be cool about it?
