The Nintendo GameBoy pretty much sparked the handheld gaming genre. Though other handhelds like the Sega GameGear, Atari Lynx, and NEC TurboExpress were superior machines, the Nintendo GameBoy just dominated and outlasted them all. The GameBoy was released in North America in July 1989, with a release price of $90. The top selling GameBoy games were Tetris, selling over 30 million cartridges, and Pokemon Red & Blue, selling over 23 million copies. In it's lifespan, the GameBoy (both original and color version) have sold over 118 million units worldwide, 44 million in North America. In it's life, hardware was also designed for it, including a link cable and a printer. The GameBoy was discontinued in 2003 for the GameBoy Advanced SP. In 2009, the GameBoy was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame.
