The RandomWorks Nomad (not to be confused with the Genesis Nomad) is a handheld game console by RandomWorks released in June 2006. It was the first handheld console released by RandomWorks. Unique about the Nomad is its additional functionality as a home console through a video port designed to be used with a television set.
The Nomad does not have its own game library, but instead plays Homebrew, PC games and Game Boy Advance games loaded on the Memory Stick. At the time of its launch, the Nomad had over 500 games available for play. However, no pack-in title was included. The Nomad can boot unlicensed, homebrew, and bootleg games made for the Game Boy Advance. Some earlier third-party titles have compatibility issues when played on the Nomad, but can be successfully played through the use of a cheat system.
