This guy is the Game Wave Entertainment System, made by Canadian company Zap-IT! Games in 2005 and cancelled in 2009. About 13 games came out for it and was also a DVD player. I have two, this one doesn't have a working DVD drive and a boxed one.

Funnily enough, I saw one of these things at a local used game store last week; I thought it was a Nuon at first.

Earlier this week I found a Game Gear Soft Check cart at a thrift store. Supposedly this cart can check/test various things in the Game Gear like the speakers, contrast, buttons, V-RAM, etc. However, I'm unable to get it to pass the first test which appears to be a COMM Port check since I don't have a Game Gear Link cable (I think Sega called them Gear-to-Gear cables). Not that I'm really in a rush to get one at this moment though; the Game Gear was never really a console I had much interest in due to its size, capacitor leaking issue, and that Sega never made a Super Game Boy equivalent for the Game Gear.

I kinda wonder how this cartridge got to my neck of the woods. Maybe someone in my area used to work at Sega or something? I'm not sure if it's just a coincidence or maybe from the same person, but the same thrift store had a Genesis 2 in box the other week too that was still in pretty good condition.

Those service carts are pretty neat. I'm sure Sega had a few authorized repair depots, so that could possibly explain why it got to your area.

Cool stuff!

Had some time to play NES on my micro TV. Ever play Duck Hunt on a 1.5" screen?

Not really as obscure as most items on here, but I finally was able to get a Satellaview. It was a satellite modem for the Super Famicom, which allowed for game broadcasts, magazine downloads, and other such things through the now defunct ST GIGA service. Supposedly there were over 100,000 sold but there was also a buyback after the service ended so the true number of units still out there is unkown, but it's a pretty neat item nonetheless.
