    I think there's zero chance of this leaving Japan. They love tiny things, but this won't appeal to western gamers. A true GG micro console with HDMI out, wireless control options, and a slew of games would, but not this.

    Maybe the Japanese will appreciate this? Dead in the water in the West I would say.

    Default Game gear micro just announced by sega japan!

    https://youtu.be/nvdhBkB_68k
    I was excited until i saw the size of it, a small game gear with 30 built in games would have been nice, but this is just pointless, its probably not playable because its too small, and only 4 games... weak

    This is a keychain novelty at best. If I can run CFW on it I would use it as a clock or watch.
    The screen looks to be proportionately the same size as the GBA Micro, only in the original GG aspect ratio. The screen should be at least ten times clearer than the original Game Gear, so text can only be easier to read.

    The body looks larger than GBA Micro, which lots of people like. I bought one new bitd and tried to keep playing it, but went back to my SP because of the screen quality alone.

    This was the big announcement? Oh dear. I'm not being funny but the Game Gear wasn't exactly a runaway success over here due to the shocking battery life. As advanced as it was in it's day it's not exactly something that people think of when you talk about Sega success stories.

    I actually thought this was a joke. But unfortunately it is not. This is absolute garbage. WTF is SEGA thinking??

    It would be pretty cool if they could pull off a handheld/home console hybrid. A lot of these console re-releases seem capitalize to nostalgia though, and the SMS and Game Gear didn't sell very well in North America when it was out. A product like that might work in Europe or Brazil though.

    Hey, Sega. My wallet is ready for a slim (not micro) Nomad. Please and thank you.

    garbage


    solution here: https://faq.sega.jp/hc/ja/requests/n...d=360000782393


    send them a message asking for fire those who suggested the idea of ​​making this product, tell them you wanted, a console. say that this product shames the company's history

    be polite and offer a solution, if 40 of us do this and keep repeating the message over and over, Sega will wake up, I'm doing it, do it too

    So this is the big SEGA news that's supposed to "rock the gaming world" or whatever? I might pick them up at a later date after this thing falls flat on it's face and the price goes way down.
