I reckon it's a great idea to get customers perspective view on the experience...mine is simply one of a disappointed 'near' customer! :lol:

The sad thing about all this is even if its a complete failure in the community, the units are so cheap they will most likely end up in Argos. Dropping on poor unsespecting shoppers.

A nice little article which outlines the GG story so far...

There are some quotes (new????) attributed to a GameGadget spokeperson at the very bottom that address the current situation.

My review didnt get published.

Really must stop overusing the word "arse"
Still I dont think they liked the phrase "Arse biscuit"

Another ludicrously positive 5 star review has now gone up, wonder which Blaze/Xploder employee it is this time.

Lol I did laugh with their open tweet to 'Lord Sugar' asking where they can licence Amstrad and Spectrum games from!? Who's running this project, two 19 year graduates off The Apprentice!?

The sooner this thing is wiped from our collective consciousness the better.

'GG' will forever mean Game Gear alone, not this piece of tat! :D *

* not that Game Gear wasn't tat too, mind. :lol:

I loved my old GG! Had a ****ing sight more better games than the GG...okay this is getting confusing...

Been popping onto the GG forum to have a look...yeah I need a life... :lol: , but I noticed someone giving a 'softly softly' criticism, thinking it would be nice to 'have some new games...freeware Doom is good, but the UNABILITY TO CHANGE WEAPONS IS A BIT OF A DOWNER!'
This is a joke, surely? :?

A suitable epitaph for the gg, yes? :lol:

N.B. GG = Game Gear, gg = Game Gadget. That's what I'll be sticking to anyways! :wink: :mrgreen:
