UPDATE: Analogue's Game Boy-Inspired Console, the Pocket, Sells Out Within Minutes

“We will be producing more and do our best to meet demand.”

UPDATE (August 5, 2020): Pre-orders for retro gaming company Analogue‘s the Pocket officially went live earlier this week. However, due to its increased popularity, the modern take on Nintendo‘s iconic Game Boy sold out in eight minutes on its launch date. The brand took to Twitter to announce: “Pocket pre-orders are sold out. We will be producing more and do our best to meet demand during this unfortunate global state of affairs.”

For those who weren’t able to get their hands on the Pocket, be sure to sign up to Analogue’s mailing list to be notified once it restocks the device and other accessories.


ORIGINAL STORY (July 29, 2020): Last year, retro gaming company Analogue unveiled a modern take on Nintendo’s iconic Game Boy dubbed the Pocket. Described as “a multi-video-game-system portable handheld,” the console will finally be available for pre-order next week.

The Pocket is compatible with more than 2,780 games from the cartridge library of the original Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Game Gear, Neo Geo Pocket Color, Atari Lynx and more. The design of the upcoming device features an updated 3.5-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 1600×1440. Powered by a 4,300mAh lithium-ion battery, the console can last up to 10 hours per charge. Rounding out the Pocket is the micro-SD slow, a USB-C charging port, a 3.5-millimeter audio port and a special Dock, which allows you to connect it to your TV.

The Analogue Port retails for $200 USD and will be available for pre-order on August 3 at 8 a.m. PST (11 a.m. EST) via the company’s website.
