Game consoles have undoubtedly been a part of our lives, and we spent a good deal of our free time on them. Although modern game consoles and games are for them more advanced than they were a few years or decades ago, many feel that their games are not the best. This in no way applies to Nintendo’s legendary Game Boy handheld console, which experienced a real boom in video games in the 1990s.
The Nintendo Game Boy and Game Boy Color handheld game consoles were essentially the same, except that the latter offered a color screen for gaming. The Nintendo Game Boy saw the light of day in 1989, while the more advanced Game Boy Color was only available in 1998. A total of 154 million of these devices were sold, which was enough to make a portable console for the Nintendo Game Boy and Game Boy Color third place In terms of the number of devices sold worldwide. This, however, only indicates its popularity.
However, what is less well known is that the Game Boy Color console can have an internet connection. Nintendo engineers have prepared a special add-on for it, which would enable users to connect to the World Wide Web. This would, in effect, give users the ability to connect, read news, exchange instant messages, and even stream TV content. The intriguing unit was tested by enthusiasts for three years, and then the project was abandoned, as Nintendo stopped producing the Game Boy Color controller.
