Consoleation 012: The One About The GxTV
Greetings once again, friends, and welcome to another installment of Consoleation here at Retroware. This time around, I’m turning the calendar back to 1997, and talking about one of the best video game-related purchases that I ever made. It’s not a game, and it’s not a console. It’s a purchase that I still use today, 18 years and thousands of hours later.
What I’m referring to is the GxTV, manufactured by Samsung.
Prior to the release of the GxTV in 1997, I was in a bit of a bind when it came to how I was playing my PlayStation games. The television that I had been using was manufactured by Zenith, and early-model PlayStation units had compatibility issues with some Zenith sets. I ultimately wound up relocating the PlayStation out of my bedroom– which was where my NES and SNES consoles were set up– and putting it in the living room. As I was living with my grandmother at the time, this led to occasional conflicts when it came to using the living room TV… which meant that there were plenty of times when I had to work around my grandmother’s TV-watching schedule.
In short… it wasn’t convenient for either of us.
When I spotted the GxTV at my local Electronics Boutique, it seemed almost too good to be true. What sorcery was this for $300? Audio features like a built-in sub-woofer and simulated surround sound options were nice. The compact size of the GxTV made it perfect for putting on my desk and playing games on. Having a cable-ready TV was a nice bonus at the time, too. Admittedly, I was most drawn in by the fact that it seemed to be marketed at me– a television set for video game players. I bought the GxTV the same day and brought it home.
As you can see, the GxTV screen isn’t very big. It’s got a 13″ screen, and it’s accompanied by two hinged adjustable speakers that swing out from the screen. It’s very much a personal TV, rather than a set that you could put in a...Source: Retroware TV
