Wow... great collection! Sad to see that you're having to part with it. Good luck with the sale! Some niche collector is going to be very happy to have seen all this listed.

Thanks :P Yes, it's time to let it go. I don't even remember why I became so smitten with it, but it ended up becoming one of my favorite systems, and a true challenge to collect for.

Wow, this thing used cards? That, I was unaware of. Definitely a good idea for a portable console! :)

Yeah, I'm a sucker for the card-style cartridges. Love both the TG-16 and Sega Cards; I remember being blown away by how small they were back in the day. Still kind of amazing, especially when you consider the limitations of ROM chips back in the day. How are these structured, anyway? Some of the largest Hucards (SF2) are over 32mbit, aren't they? Can barely believe they managed to cram all that in the tiny card profile using the silicon manufacturing technologies available in the early to mid 90s.

A colleague cracked one open once. Not much inside there, internally. From what I can surmise, they're just a taiwanese variation of Hu Cards/sega cards.

Wow - I remember laughing my ass off in the mid 90's, seeing these faux Gameboys for $50 in an independent game store in Beloit, WI with the software going for $5-$10ea. I don't remember seeing as many games there though, so kind of thought it was one of those dead in the water type deals before it had a chance to take off in whatever countries they may have been popular in.

Cute system of sorts. Really "worth" this much though? Makes me wish I snagged 'em at the time. :lol:

Sure it's "worth" every penny. :) I only collected handheld systems, and of the say 40 odd platforms I had around this was one of my favorites. (and so it's the final brand I have to part with , as I've kept it longer than all the rest). In terms of priorities, it's not much different than paying good money for Amiga games (in 2012). Matter of taste is all :)

Sweet! The I sold my Gamate last year. I never saw any games for sale and I just couldn't see collecting it anymore. Very cool collection of games. I (see my avatar) have had more luck with the Watara Supervision and the Mega Duck (also crappy but fun to collect obscure handhelds!)

I just bought 8 games from this thread for $450, and that was a mildly discounted price from the listing. Yes they are worth it, but don't feel bad as I can at least empathize with passing up great Gamate stuff at flea-markets. When it comes to market value, It's sort of the "Neo-Geo AES" of handhelds. Not many people know it exists, and those that want it REALLY want it bad.
3rdman has very modest prices here, and he knows his Gamate stuff well.

You will never see a Gamate as pristine as this. Very well cared for example. Works perfectly. Screen/body 10/10.

Asking $270.

pm any questions
