    I would assume the cart adaptor would send a signal to the system.

    Myself, I have all the Sonic GG games on the Mega and Gems Gamecube discs, so I don't need to buy the grand battery muncher.

    So is the only distinguishing characteristic of the Majesco version the white markings (as opposed to red, green, blue) above the words GAME GEAR on the left side of the screen? If it is, then I have one, and to be honest, I thought it was less valuable than the SEGA Game Gear. Anyway, a buddy and myself each got a Majesco Game Gear a few years ago, when we ordered them new through Amazon. We just assumed they were crappy knockoffs though.

    You wanna buy mine, Ace?

    I own three Game Gears, and they all have issues. I liked GG back in the day, but nowadays they're too unreliable.

    Speaking of the Game Gear.... browsing on Amazon... does anyone know what the HELL this thing is? I've never seen one, read about one,whatever.

    It's a yellow Game Gear

    Ok seriously, it's probably from Japan, as seen on this commercial. I remember seeing it on my Sonic Jam CD back in the day...

    What I think is more interesting is, if you look at the photo of the back of it, it says it takes battery type "LR 6 (AM 3) x 6". Is this some kind of weird Japanese battery? Mine takes 6 normal AAs.

    It's just a foreign designation for AA batteries. Japan doesn't use the standard letter designation system we use.

    I know they have bad caps in them and tons of people say they have bad GG systems. But here's the crazy part. I have had like 4 of them in the past few years and they all work! Luck of the draw I guess.

    All of mine still work, just not that well. Problems I have:

    -- Has difficulty reading cartridges
    -- The audio is shot on one of them
    -- Pressing Button 1 makes the screen "ripple"
    -- The screen is even blurrier than originally

    No, the Majesco versions also have a black case (instead of dark grey) and a purple start button (instead of blue) and they say mfd. by Majesco on the label on the back.

    I'll try to post some comparitive photos when I get home tonight.

    All but screen ripple are bad cap issues.

    You have no need to care about the TV tuner. With the digital TV transition in the U.S., the TV Tuner will not work!

    Actually some stations are still allowed to have analog broadcast. But you wouldn't get anything interesting.

    It has nothing to do with the Digital transition. I would NEVER watch TV on a screen as small as the Game Gear's. Hell, I wouldn't even get a TV Tuner if I bought a TurboExpress! I don't want to watch TV on those miniature screens. And besides, I've tried to tune a TurboExpress' TV Tuner without ever getting a signal, so what's the point of having it when I can barely use the thing?

    Lol, I got one of those tuners free with my Express when I bought it-- it's nearly completely useless trying to get a signal out of it. I can pick stuff up fine on my TVs that aren't plugged into the cable and analog signals are extremely strong here thanks to having Chicago nearby, but with the TE I have to go find a window to stand by to get anything. Even then it's fuzzy and impossible to watch. I really now just have it as a novelty.

    Here are some comparison photos of the Majesco and Sega versions. They are pretty self-explanitory.
