Developer: ProTech
Release Date: 1998
Competitors: Game Boy
Generation: Fourth generation

The Pro 200 was a handheld game system made in 1998 by an unknown company going by the name ProTech (A.K.A. a bunch of guys at the company that Billy Mays worked at who threw millions of LCD and non-LCD video game consoles and handhelds and calculators into the world's biggest blender). It was distributed via mail-service and was advertised to have 256 games as well as being a full-functioning calculator and having state-of-the-art computer technology.

Why It Flopped

  1. Graphics are basically just a bunch of LCD blocks.
  2. In reality it was a huge scam, it actually had 16 games but were rounded out to 256 because of each individual difficulty and speed levels for the games.
  3. It was released around the same time as the Game Boy Color, but only had LCD graphics.
  4. Most of the games were Tetris clones and a few racing games.
  5. The screen was so small, it was hard to see what was happening.
  6. The advertising itself tried to make the system look good by throwing a Street Fighter II Super Nintendo cartridge into the trash.

I wonder why it's not available in stores? Maybe stores didn't want to sell this trash? Also, at the time this commercial was made, CDs were the format with Playstation, Sega Saturn, and the upcomming Sega Dreamcast and they show a SNES cartridge. This thing is bad. Imagine if this did become a success and every kid in america had it which these guys wished happened.

And this thing was sold in America? I would understand the early 90's, but this is in the fifth generation of video game consoles, and most handheld consoles at least have color!

Why does the Pro 200 look like a cell-phone?

It's just an E-Star E-23 Brick Game from mid-80s, but with more bulkier and awkward design.
