Gameboy 1up a whole new take on a classic system

While browsing the net like we all do I run across something very interesting called Game Boy 1up. This Game boy has been re-imagined by German Designer Florian Renner, his redesign of our beloved Game boy is something all retro gamers would like to have.c811f031039385.563e3ec5b8d35In my opinion, it looks like a cross between the Game Boy and some of those JXD android systems, also the controls remind me of the SNES controller. If this was ever sold on ebay or any place like that, I think it would sell like hot cakes as I know I would definitely buy it.

Description:
A personal project of a handheld console as an homage to the original Game Boy of 1989. The project target was to keep the catchy elements of the original and adapt them to the functions and requirements of current games. Software: Cinema4d and Octane.46a8f531039385.563e3ec1702bd

  1. Nice concept but would there be any possibility of retro-compatibility, if not of course that retro-gamers like me won’t ruin themselves with a prototype like this when you can get the GBA SP for merely 40 USD…which would totally be a cheaper buy x)

    If yes I may consider it^^
