HG-501 HG-503 Prison-Issued Game Console
Prison inmates are not able to get their hands on the latest video game consoles, like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S / X, but that doesn’t mean that gaming is out of the question for them. There are currently two options available to them, the HG-501 and HG-503, with the latter being the most popular since it comes pre-loaded with games, powered by simple AAA batteries.

Aside from the pre-loaded games, the HG-503 can also be hooked up to a TV for gaming on the somewhat larger screen. Who makes this game console? Clear Tunes, a company that specializes in making prison issue electronics, including AM/FM radios, an LCD TV, remote controls, and alarm clocks. Sometimes, you’ll even find some of these items on eBay, Craigslist, and Facebook Marketplace.
