  • Excerpt: "The Atari Lynx was released in it's initial form in 1989 and was in direct competition with Nintendos Gameboy.

  • Pros: Good graphics and sound .  Feels solid to use .
  • Cons: Bulkier than most people are used to .  Limited game supply .  Heavy battery drain .

Diese tragbare Spielekonsole für unterwegs hätte den Gb um weites vom markt drängen können aber durch verschiedene umstände die vor allem an ataris marktstrategie versaut wurden (wenig werbung usw..
  • Pros: sehr viel aber s . o .
