The Super Vision get's no love, I really liked mine despite the terrible engrish translations on the games. I've been pestering RG to do a feature on it.

I just did a review of the machine and put it up on You Tube for those who might want to find out more!

I would happily write a SuperVision article for RG, same with the Systema 2000. The big problem is finding anyone you can interview about it!

Surely there's someone who used to work at Quickshot you could ask about it?

Probably, finding them is often the problem. I will do some research and see what I can find out.

I had a Systema 2000 for a bit, I sold it on this very forum. Here's a piccy of the box showing the extortionate price I paid.

Cool! It's nice to see what the box for it looks like, very similar in style to the game packaging.

It's me he sold it to!

Got a few more games for it since, it's a fun enough machine - easily as enjoyable as the SuperVision or the Gamate.

I have nearly all the games, did you watch the video?

I actually have a spare copy of Hyperspace too, do you have that?

I've got Bubble Boy, Continental Galaxy, Falling Block, Hyper-Space and Tennis... Turns out the folk who made the thing also made the TV Boy, remember that? Load of 2600 games with different names stuck on a standalone pad that plugs into the telly, fun stuff. Used to love playing its version of Keystone Kapers.

Haven't watched the video yet, as it was 2am when I saw this post... But I'll give it a watching today :D

Just watched the video, nice to (sort of) see what other games look like - the packaging's great!

Got excited when I saw there was a pinball game for it... Oh well :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yeah none of the games are worth getting excited about, filming it was a total censored!

Only handheld I've currently got is a white boxed PSP that I got for free out of a joblot.

This should interest handheld fans, a video series I did comparing the same/similar games (either by name, licence or style) from the Atari Lynx to the Sega Game Gear:
