The GameGear was a great handheld - but the display quality and battery time wasn't the best at all.
Both can now be fixed! McWills LCD-Replacement kit gives your GameGear a brand new backlit LCD!
This massively increases the picture quality and also increases the battery time a lot.
This works with every GameGear EXCEPT for the Majesco-Version (which can easily be identified by having a white GameGear logo on the display cover, whereas the Sega GameGear has a colored one).
The modification supports different scalings as well as a scanline-emulation (which makes it look VERY authentic!)
Here is a video that shows the modification process as well as differences between the original GameGear and the modded one:
One small drawback: As the GameGear used rectangle pixels, the resolution of the new display can't be perfect. So games with scrolling have some small funky effects, games without scrolling still look great. The emulated scanlines minimizes that issue so that it's not really disturbing anymore.
We'll do the modification for you!
That's not a problem!
As soon as you place your order (incl. the modification), you'll receive an email with instructions how to ship the device to us.
Be aware that the GameGear HAS to be fully functional! We'll test it before doing the modification, and in case it doesn't work, we'll send it back (you'll get back your payment for the modification kit in that case, of course)
This offer includes all the needed hardware (McWills modification set). You only need to provide your own GameGar.
