    This was what the hype was all about, didn't they learn anything from Microsoft about over promising.

    But this is Sega, I'm used to them failing with Sonic, Sonic heroes was my favourite, I tolerate Christian Whitehead's 2 sonic but I'm not head over heels in to 2D sonic. Plus I disliked how they didn't have shadow the hedgehog in sonic mania.

    I'm even less hopeful for VF6, if we are lucky it'll be released 5 years later in the arcades in Japan

    I heard about the game gear micro news, last night on dreamcast talk. Despite the slight surprise, I'm glad to see that sega, is slowly trying to come back. Hopefully sega makes the micro a bit larger though. And hopefully, this is leading to something big, in the next few weeks, or months and we won't be disappointed.

    If sega has to take 5 years to make a good VF6 game, that isn't a watered down, nerfed, crappy game and doesn't suck, then I have no problem with them taking that long. But to be honest, they should be able to make that game, in less time than 5 years.

    The market reaction seems pretty good for those mini size retro consoles, such as PC Engine Mini recently. But releasing 4 different colors and adding "big screen" kit makes me wonder what kind of strategic SEGA is thinking about......

    1.15 inch screen. That's smaller than my smartwatch. This thing is tiny beyond functionality. Basically a novelty keychain accessory/collectors item. Hilarious.

    I would honestly be a huge fan of this if they all had the full 16-game lineup, and the different color models were just for fun and to add some personality. Splitting the games up across four color variations of the same device seems a little bit greedy to me, personally. It's especially disappointing to see this regression after the Genesis Mini offered a much larger lineup of 40+ quality titles at the same price as the other competing mini consoles. It would be great if they changed their minds and gave users a bigger bang for their buck (and included the magnifying screen replica with every purchase, since that seems like the huge complaint for many prospective players, so far). The game lineup is honestly pretty good, though! The Game Gear is another underrated console.

    As a novelty item, I think this a fun one, though. I've personally always enjoyed the miniature model consoles, though, ever since I bought one of the Yujin Sega History Collection capsule toys from a really nice seller going by figuresmoon on eBay way back when! So, Having one of these mini model replicas being functional is a cool added bonus ;)

    I’m confused, I thought the major announcement was for “fog gaming?” We do have round1entertainment in America and if I’m not mistaken Japanese owned. This might be a good sign for America in the future? If fog does well In Japan we might get lucky? The news is definitely better than I expected.

    I think "fog computing" can only be implemented in Japan since they have arcade stores. Looking forward to see SEGA can disclose more info about this tech.

    Fuck that. I'm for Sega , I vote with my wallet. Im getting my Game Gear Micro. It's the first time Sega has made hardware in 20 years!!! This is like when the SDF-1 rose out of the bay it had been sitting in for 10 years. You millennial cucks just don't get it. I'm buying two: one for me and one to give away as a prize in the next NYG. And yes there WILL be a NYG this year even if we only have 5 people. VFWARLORD HAS SPOKEN!!!

    Blitzball Champ least it will be able to fit in my pocket. The original Game Gear was cool, but that thing was fat!

    I hope they make a larger one though. With more than 10 games on it.
