|You just gotta love the titles used for pirate systems, such as this "8 Bit Play Vision Portable" distributed Hamy. The device is manufactured by Shenzhen Qi Sheng Long Industrialist Company out of China, where else?|
The device is a portable Famicom clone, those were rather hard to find around 10 years back but during the last 3-4 years a lot of these Famicom handhelds have surfaced, a lot of times the same device re-branded.
The Hamy handheld is also known as FC Mobile and they even share the same part number, HG-828. What mostly differs these from each other is the number of games built-in, while the FC Mobile has an 88in1 built-in, the Hamy "only" has a 76in1, but as it's not all different games it's not really that important.
Screen wise the system has a 2.5" TFT which is nice and sharp, tho it seems like the scaling is off and colors are a bit washed out, there's no contrast switch or anything like that to fix it though, it is as it is.
Fortunately there's a volume switch and the obvious buttons needed for playing, duuh?. With that said the system features a A/V out and there's a special cable iincluded for that option.
The cable is a mere 1,5m and I don't know about you but I'd like to sit a little further away from my TV, and with newer TV's that do not have A/V jacks on the front, you'll most likely have your face a few inches from the screen. Are cables really that expensive that EVERY clone system out there must save on the cables/cords? Oh well!
To make things worse the video out on this thing is just horrible, the output is so washed out that it's nearly impossible to play some games.
On the back there's a cartridge port so you'll be able to play something else, but good luck removing the cartridge after playing, it's quite difficult to remove for some reason.
But with a pricetag of $25-35 the system is worth it really...
