    Analogue Co announces Analogue Pocket w/ NGPC support

    This is a leak about 2 hours early...

    https://www.wallpaper.com/lifestyle/...dheld-game-boy

    GB/GBC/GBA plus NGPC, Game Gear, Lynx.

    Edit official site: https://www.analogue.co/pocket/

    $200... 1600x1440 screen?!?! Built in synthesizer?!?!?! Extra FPGA for modders to add more cores?!?!?! HDMI out via dock?!? This is unbelievable.

    Very cool. I don’t own a game gear or lynx so I may pick one up just to play those titles

    This is pretty sweet! I have a number of Lynx games, and despite having two of the consoles, it really isn't practical to play (I used to play it connected to an AC adapter, since it would eat through batteries like crazy). Even when not plugged in, it isn't very portable for a portable console. Plus, I could play all my NGPC games, and my whopping two GameBoy Color titles.

    I'd for sure buy that if the price is right. Nice it covers so many platforms

    Analogue finally makes a console I'm interested in. Wish they'd make one in the Game Gear form factor, that said Gameboy Pocket is one of my all-time favorite handhelds.

    I'm more excited at the potential for NGPC games via an adapter. I won't have to mod my NGPC with a weird screen or anything, it would be much easier. I wonder if the buttons can be mapped z as it has 4 face buttons but the GB line only has 2 of them.

    definitely in, honestly sad I sold all my Lynx shit after seeing this. But hopefully, it will follow previous releases and be jailbroke for teh romz. This is definitely something I'll go ahead and pay bloated shipping costs for.

    Now that would really make this thing perfect. I recently bought one of those portable PCE’s and it is absolutely horrible.

    I hope that they will at least add the core, so that it can play PCE roms.

    Whatever comes of it, this is definitely a buy for me

    I want this just for the dock. If people port other cores to it, awesome. But just having a nice HD piece of hardware to play my handheld titles is worth it.

    My MegaSG jail broken replaced my Genesis/MasterSystem/Game Gear. Iím at a point where Iíd like To simplify my consoles as much as possible. And avoid using my OSSC so I donít have to fuss with scaling settings as much either.

    This. This is exactly where I am at in my life. I am sick of all the wires and gadgets, but I also don't want shit visuals or emulation if possible.

    Really cool idea but I hate the form factor of the GB and wish they had made different form factor models.

    Same here, this whole FPGA thing makes things so much easier. If this gets a SNES core it’ll be awesome, if it gets a PC Engine core then that would be the icing.

    This is overblown. As long as your original hardware still works, there's no issue keeping your original SNES, Genesis etc tucked neatly in a drawer with its respective cables, ready to connect to the OSSC or what have you.

    These new FPGA' systems are great to have available as an alternative to real hardware, but let's not pretend it means everyone should throw their old consoles out and replace them with new ones because they're too much trouble.

    One thing that's bugging me about this is that the buttons look like they are really close together. If they are about the size of the buttons on a Switch joycon or 3DS the tip of your thumb could cover all four buttons and would make something like holding run while jumping in Mario quite difficult. On a handheld ergonomics are everything, if it's annoying to use you simply won't use it.
