    It's a black-and-white system similar to Game Boy. The screen is a bit bigger, the top half "bends" to a better viewing angle, and the games are actually pretty good for the most part. We have a complete list here:

    ... and I covered this topic in Tips & Tricks at some point, you can hunt for it here:

    If any of you have Digital Cable or Sat. and the channel "Nick Games and Sports", keep watching the show "Legends of the Hidden Temple" a show from the 90's and you will see in a couple of episodes that the awesome SuperVison is one of the prizes that could be won. The SuperVision that I have seen in the USA are all gray like the Gameboy, the one pictured in the first post is the Euro SuperVison which is why the color is different. This very cool, I love the SuperVision.

    A friend of my had a SuperVision, maybe he still has it. I think I played a soccer game on it for a few minutes, wasn't bad. Like DP said, some sort of watered-down Game Boy.

    Yo, what's up? The show you are thinking of is called "GUTS" which aired around the same time "Legends of the Hidden Temple". "LotHT" featured a huge talking Tiki head named "Olmac" that asked questions to the contestants, where as "GUTS" was like an olympics for kids all around the world to take place in. It is awesome to note that there is a Video Game on the Snes based off the Nick TV show "GUTS".

    Whoa...I actually remembered that! (didn't watch much TV back then same as today, but I do remember LotHT! Wasn't that a Nickelodeon show?) Anyhow, which show was it that had the Supervision as a prize again?

    Yo, Ed what's happening? The show that had the SuperVision as a prize was the Nickelodeon show "Legends of the Hidden Temple" the SuperVision could be won at the very end of the show when the contestants enter the temple and retrive an ancient artifact of some sort within 3 Min.

    I remember this thing advertised in the back of BOYS LIFE, the boyscout magazine that I use to get when I was younger. It always looked like crap and it still does, even if they colored the system red, c'mon guys. is this relaly something to be obsessing over? ^_^. They were even selling these on QVC (home shopping Network) for a while too.

    Out of all the "Legends of the Hidden Temple" episodes I have seen, I have only seen the SuperVision as a prize two or three times.

    I'm pretty sure they gave it away as a prize on a few episodes of The Price is Right, as well. Not the good TPIR, but those crappy primetime episodes with the different host.

    Well, thereīs an argentinian Supervision from Electrolab...i think very difficult to find in USA, itīs the same as the Watara, but with the Electrolab trademark.
