THESE ARE RETRO POCKET GAMES AND YOU CAN CHOOSE WHICH YOU WANTDate: 2018-11-06
The latest creation from Love Hultén sees him put his 2015 Pixel Vision pocket gaming system on a strict diet and split it into two versions – one that folds like the original and a one-piece inspired by the Game Boy Pocket.
The retro pocket game takes inspiration from the Game Boy and is known as the clamshell Pixel Vision 2.0. When folded it measures in at 90 x 70 x 26 mm, while the one-piece edition has 90 x 130 x 14 mm dimensions. Both of the designs come wrapped in Hultén's signature wooden housing – in this case, American Walnut – and can store 10,000 games each. Personal game emulation libraries can be added to over Wi-Fi.
Both these retro games have a 480 x 320 resolution display panel, with a directional pad and buttons underneath. The pocket console is not confined to Game Boy emulations, but can also tap into the game archives of the SNES, Megadrive, NES, TurboGrafx-16 and others. The built-in battery is reported good for about 5 hours of play between charges.
Each variant is limited to just 50 units. The Pixel Vision 2.0 is on sale now for €349 (about US$400) a pop. Shipping is expected to start in December.
