Sega / Tiger Electronics Afterburner

As far as extravagant, supposedly handheld games go, this Tiger version of Sega's Afteburner is easily among the most impressive. You can bid on a working version of the thing via this eBay auction. Seller ships only to Canada and the USA. Oh, and here's a lovely Tiger Electronics Afterburner ad.

  3. Hey now that's cool! I have never seen that before but that would have been awesome to have as a kid. I dont know why but after not hearing or seeing anything about Afterburner for years I have been bombarded by sightings of it in the last 6 months or so - original arcade versions, ports, this... not sure what that means but there is a sign in there somewhere I'm sure of it! The one for Outrun on the commercial was cool too.

  4. It's the Afterburner assault and its got its retro ads to crush us with. No, seriously, I think I've been spotting quite a few Afterburner references myself lately.
