The Wide-Boy64 is a rather obscure Nintendo 64 accessory that was unreleased to the public. A device similar to the Super Game Boy and Game Boy Player, the Wide-Boy 64 allows videogame developers to play Game Boy Color games on the television screen. It also allowed the gaming press to capture screenshots more easily.
The Wideboy was not a consumer product as only developers and magazines could purchase one from Nintendo at a cost of $1400 USD a piece.
Like the Super Game Boy and Game Boy Player, the game screen itself is surrounded by a template mimicking the appearance of the portable system.
