  1. $60 is excessive considering the Bill of Materials of the board. It is a very neat PCB indeed. But it is basically just a bare PCB with a battery charging module and an audio amplifier. The display would be the most expensive part on the board.

  2. Mr. Prime, I'm sure you have already answered this in a previous video about the Pi Zero… but how fast does it boot? This might be the primary reason I wouldn't trade a real Gameboy for something like this.
    Great video by the way!

  3. Just got a raspberry pi zero yesterday, trying to build something similar out of a Chinese Handheld that doesn't work anymore but I want to use the controls of the PCB but I'd have to cut it up. Never done this before, know of any good tutorials on chopping up a PCB and rewiring the controls to the zero or pi 3?

  4. Not bad! Good price point too. I can swing $55 to $60, but the $250 region is a bit steep for the DMG version. It is quality work though no doubt.

  5. I've learned so much through watching your channel. Thank you for making these cool videos.

  6. can this be done with a gameboy color? I would love to do this with a toxic purple case and pokemon silver to remember my childhood and my days of playing pokemon silver

  7. I wish there was a way to use a pi3 cm3 board in a project like this so we could play some ps1 games!

  8. Looks cool, but don't like the spaces you see next to the screen. Any solution to that ?

  9. Not to mention since its a Pi, you can install one of the many builds for it, then connect a Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse combo and have a literal pocket computer.

  10. Hey dude spaming u pros for some help, off subject but, when adding new roms to image (vman128), how do i get the box art and everything loaded properly on the newly added roms? I know the image has all the snaps and box art for the total collection, assume i need to update gameslist o something but dont know how… please help this simpleton! Thanks brotha, keep up the good work!

  11. this is cool & sleek; only thing I don't like is how underpowered the pi zero is.. though I suppose it is fine for NES and Gameboy emulation. actually it could also do non-action GBA games decently like Pokemon Green Leaf (I build a Pi Zero from a DMG shell)

  12. can i do emulator in this like
    snes nintendo gameboy gamboy advance etc?
    or 3ds games?
    how many games u can hold in this system?

  13. adventure island 2 still the best and still my fav.

  14. 60 bucks for some plastic and a few cheap components and it doesn't even include a raspberry. that's a total ripoff
    I'd rather order all the parts separately and make it on a test brick or something. you could probably get everything including the raspberry for around 60 bucks..

  15. If I pay you could you make me one and send it

  16. Would you sell one of these and if you would, how much? I just don't have the spare time to build one but would like one to own. A four button preferably.

  17. I’ve got a limited edition ice blue game boy pocket I’ll do this to! It’d be great if he came out with a cm3 model!

  18. If the battery compartment was removed, you could put a larger battery along the entire back side. Just make new bottom screw mounts…like a perfboard bridge with screw holes to hold it together

  19. You need to check out river city ransom on steam. I know you love beatem ups

  20. I greatly disagree with mutilating a pokemon yellow cart for this build. But it looks good.

  21. cool, there's even some room in the old battery compartment to hide my… broccoli. yeah.

  22. Why do they sell these not fully built? That's like selling a half eaten box of pizza.

  23. Most importantly which image do you use for pi zero w configured for this board? is there a link? which image of retropie did you use for yours? Was is the official Gaboze Pocaio image off the creators website? Tindie has not mentioned if the Pi 0 W is compatible with his official Image. This info is very important my friend as some have flashed retropie only to find out that its not supported on pi 0 w.

  24. Just ordered one! Thanks for your detailed video, it was super helpful in making the purchase.

  25. Game Boy Pocket Raspberry Pi Zero W Gaboze Pocaio or Odroid Go? which one do you like more ignoring the price difference. which one performs better and overall feels better while gaming?

  26. Would it be feasible to buy the PCB and put in a larger display? I'm hoping to custom make a panel cover and up the display size to 3 or 3.5 inches.

  27. Adventure Island 2 is so underrated
    awesome game

  28. Having trouble booting up the raspberry pi after soldering to the pins. I have a white screen and nothing else loads. Was wondering if anyone had the same problem.

  29. I hate that I’m late to this project, I definitely would have gotten one

  30. May I request for the gaboze pocaio round 1image?

  31. Do you know if it works with raspberry pi 3?

  32. Could you do this inside a gameboy color case?

  33. Great video! I would love to build one using the original, unlit screen though. That way the batteries last much longer.
