THE GGHD CONSOLIZER KITS HAVE LANDED!
Compatibility is limited to VA0/VA1 Game Gear motherboards for the first batch. VA4/VA5/Majestico models will be supported in the next batch. Please ensure your Game Gear is compatible before purchasing.

EXPERIENCE YOUR GAME GEAR IN A WHOLE NEW WAY
No emulation. All original hardware. All original feels.
GGHD offers users a completely custom and unique way to experience their favorite classic games. The Sega Game Gear signals from original hardware are fed into our custom engineered PCB and processed for digital HDMI out with Sega Genesis 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
GGHD supports any Sega Genesis controller controllers. Whether it be an OEM controller or 3rd party controller, plug it in and start gaming!
LOW POWER, HIGH FUN
No weird proprietary power connectors needed. Only a USB-C cable is required for power (*optional gold-plated power cable provided). GGHD also sips power, maxing out at roughly 400mA. The low power consumption allows for the consolizer to be powered via any USB port such as a computer USB.
SLEEK MODERN ENCLOSURE
Thanks to Dennis Van Den Broek (@PointerFunction on Twitter), we have an enclosure that is refined and beautiful. Want to print the case on your own? No problem! Case files will be available for download under Creative Commons non-commercial license.
We will add a link for case files here and on our resources page once they are available for download.
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 digital video core, the GGHD consolizer has the ability to output both 480p (720×480 progressive), 720p (1280×720 progressive), and *1080i (1920×1080 interlaced) for maximum compatibility with HDMI enabled televisions and monitors. Resolutions are configurable via options in the OSD menu.
*1080i picture quality depends on the TV/monitor built in deinterlacer and quality will vary between devices in 1080i mode.
**We STRONGLY recommend a high quality gold plated HDMI cable for maximum screen compatibility!
SCALE IT UP
With the additional screen real estate, GGHD scales the tiny 160×144 original Game Gear resolution! By default, the processed image is linearly upscaled 4x in 480p, 5x in 720p, and 7x in 1080i 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.
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.
GGHD comes equipped with pixel filtering featuring sharpening, smoothing, enhancement, brightness control, and gamma correction options for the maximum enjoyment of the games. These filters add a whole new dimension to your Game Gear games!
