The Japanese game developer joins her compatriot and will offer the world to purchase Consoles-Retro small and cool
Somewhere in the merry XNUMXs, even before Sony and Microsoft thought about trying their luck in the field, Sega was much more than a modest game distributor - and was in fact considered Queen Nintendo's main competitor in the field. Consoles The home game, mostly thanks to a console called Mega Drive (or Sega Genesis) which has managed to sell over 30 million units throughout its life cycle.
Since then many things have changed for them, but the affection acquired by a significant number of veteran gamers for the lovable machine from Sega and the games it offered remains in place - and now the company hopes to take advantage of these nostalgic feelings except for new revenue, with the announcement of a modern miniature console. Mini.
The tiny console looks exactly like the original that was sold in Japan between 1988 and 1997, and like the retro consoles that Nintendo brought to the market, the NES Classic Edition and the Super NES Classic Edition, is probably also based on hardware ARM Modern, Operating System Basic graphics and emulator that will run a built-in selection of relevant classic titles.
All of these details are still not entirely clear, but this new console is expected to hit shelves in Japan in the coming months, and we hope to see its international launch of course, at a price that is as modest and winking and in a wide enough inventory to allow anyone interested to get their hands on one.
A sweet and positive memory from the past, or just another unnecessary method of emptying players' pockets? Feel free to tell us what you think in the comments - and at the same time we are already starting to wonder when we can see a relaunch of thePlaystation The original.
