A NEW GAMEBOY CONSOLIZER EXPERIENCE
No emulation. All original hardware. All original feels.
GBHD Color offers users a completely custom and unique way to experience their favorite classic games or create a workstation to produce chip tune music. The Gameboy Color signals from original hardware are fed into our custom engineered PCB and processed for digital HDMI out with SNES or Wii classic controller input. The sleek 3D printed enclosure is the cherry on top to make the consolizer a perfect center piece for any gaming or creation setup.
NO CONTROL ISSUES
Say goodbye to being stuck with one controller type. GBHD supports any SNES controller or Wii classic controllers through a controller breakout PCB. This future-proofing solution can be connected and replaced at any time. Whether you want to switch controller types or if a port is worn out over time, the breakout controller PCB can be swapped at any given point in time.
3.5MM Headphone Jack Out
Need Headphone support for your gaming or creative work flow? GBHD Color has you covered with it’s 3.5mm headphone jack.
LOW POWER, HIGH FUN
No weird proprietary power connectors needed. Only a micro-USB cable is required for power. GBHD Color also sips power, maxing out at roughly 350mA-400mA. The low power consumption allows for the consolizer to be powered via any USB port such as a computer USB.
SLEEK MODERN ENCLOSURE
We have worked and reworked the 3D printed enclosure for GBHD Color repeatedly for form and functionality. With the “EZ” case option, the original back case of the Gameboy Color is preserved to give GBHD Color a nostalgic feel. If a new look is desired, the “Full” Case replacement option replaces the entire case with a brand new enclosure for a completely new and contemporary feel.
COMPLETE CONTROL WITH OSD
Control your consolizer experience by accessing the on screen display to adjust to your hearts content.
ALL DIGITAL HDMI OUTPUT
Utilizing the proprietary Gamebox HDMI core, the GBHD Retro consolizer has the ability to output both 480p (720×480) and 720p (1280×720) for maximum compatibility with HDMI enabled televisions and monitors. Resolutions are configurable via options in the OSD menu.
SCALE IT UP
With the additional screen real estate, GBHD scales the tiny 160×144 original Gameboy resolution! By default, the processed image is linearly upscaled 3x in 480p and 5x in 720p with customizable border colors. Don’t want borders around the image? Not a problem! The image can be stretched to full screen with an overscan option to make it work with the many HDMI enabled televisions and monitors commercially available.
SCANNING FOR SCANLINES
Give your consolizer experience a retro CRT feel with 4 adjustable scanline modes. Scanlines range in size, and progressively get wider to simulate the feeling of sitting in front an old tube television.
