The Vena Gear is the second console release by Vena, and their first and only portable release. It is based on the Game Gear by Sega. The console is meant to be a portable Master V system. It also has a full colour screen, unlike its main rival, the Gameling by Ninvento.

Despite being more technically advanced than the Gameling,(for example having a coloured screen and better engine power) the Vena Gear does not outsell it. It has a moderate launch and never has a more successful marketshare than the Gameling. The Gear is also taken off the market before the Gameling.

Industry NewsEdit

  • "Vena, creator of the Master V console, has announced the Vena Gear, a portable console to directly compete against the Gameling from Ninvento. A spokesperson for the company said, 'Unlike similar devices on the market which don't come close to gaming consoles the Vena Gear has basically the full power of the Master V, except that you can take it with you. The Vena Gear also has a full color screen'. Will this device topple the Gameling? We will see. The Vena Gear will debut in two months."
