The '''[[wikipedia:Game Boy|Game Boy]]''' (GB) and '''[[wikipedia:Game Boy Color|Game Boy Color]]''' (GBC) are 8-bit, fourth-generation handheld consoles released by Nintendo on July 31, 1989 and November 18, 1998 respectively and retailed for <abbr title="($182.24 in 2018 money)">$89.95</abbr> . The Game Boy has a Sharp LR35902 core CPU at 4.19 MHz. It had a monochrome display that could only show only two colorsfour shades of grey, black and white (though albeit with a olive green tinge on the white was more green)original. The Game Boy Color has a Sharp LR35902 core CPU at 4.19 MHz and 8.38 MHz. It was named such from its color screen, but it also had a larger memory size and a double-clocked CPU. The hardware similarities allow cross-compatibility between the two platforms and they are often treated as one. They would both be succeeded by the backward-compatible [[Game Boy Advance emulators|Game Boy Advance]].
Nintendo re-released the console as the '''Game Boy Pocket''' in 1996, with a more compact body and a better screen. A front light was added to a special edition of the Pocket in Japan called the '''Game Boy Light''', a feature that wouldn't be seen outside of Japan until the Game Boy Advance SP.
