The Resurgence of the Gameboy

Quite often in life, vintage items will come back into fashion. Whilst this is rarely the case with gaming – technology moves on and so much of it will age quite quickly – this has been happening in recent months with the Gameboy from Nintendo. People are beginning to dig out their old devices and play their old games; it really is a blast from the past.

Much of this is to do with the release of Pokémon Go. Whilst the game has been released for smartphone devices, it has served to make Pokémon in general popular once again. People are looking back to their old games as there is a renewed interest in the subject matter.

Interestingly, Pokémon games for the Gameboy have risen astronomically in price. There is now a limited number of these games available, so the ones that still work can be worth quite a lot of money. If you have any that you no longer use, this could be the time to sell them!

Gameboys in general have seen a rise in popularity as people begin to talk about them again. Try getting yours out from the back of the cupboard and see if it still has any appeal for you in this age of modern gaming.
