    This is too cute for me. I'll love it, feed it, walk it everyday, I promise, just gimme. I'll also play on it for like a half an hour than let it collect dust.

    Nice novelty, definitely. Just hope they're hackable to add more games.

    I think that video said 4980 yen, which is like 36 quid. Wonder how much more it'll cost if it gets released over here.

    E: fwiw I just got a Game Boy Micro and it's a lot more playable at that size than you'd think. Admittedly this one looks EVEN SMALLER.

    Wow this is something I won't buy lol. My thumb's bigger than that thing.

    Completely pointless and in my case, probably useless.

    1/10 for nostalgia only.

    The Sega Dreamcast wasn terrible. Sure the memory cards were expensive but it had a lot of great games!

    To think, I thought Nintendo was going to be the first to release a mini handheld console(Yes, I know the Gameboy Micro is a thing). I guess maybe in a few years, we'll get a Gameboy mini, lol.

    Also, honestly, the Game Gear's library is pretty bad.

    Don't get me wrong I absolutely love the game gear. But like 40bucks or so for amini console with a tiny screen that is uncomfortable to play one. And with only just 4 games? No just no. You are paying for a gimmic/toy/novelty item. And an overpriced one at that.

    Even if you could mod it in the end to add any game you want the screen itself is way to tiny. It looks smaller than the gameboy micro screen and even that screen was uncomfortable to play on for longer then 15min (I got one).

    Now if it just was a bit larger like I dunno a gba screen or so. And it had more games then ofcourse an instant buy. Now? Avoid...

    I had the original handheld with a TV tuner, external battery pack (most important item), 2 x 16 in 1 carts from the night market with GG and Master System games. I would love to have the mini, but 4 games??? naaaah

    Maybe use an LCD screen that makes everything turn green when being viewed at an angle.
    Who ever owned an actual Game Gear remembers those days?

    Sega, this sounds like a real good idea, BUT why oh why you do it like this? The Game Gear Mini is way too small, they should have at least increased the size of the screen and break the original ratio to a "as I remember it". And when I look at the D-Pad, i get a real bad feeling. For 10-20 Dollar, I would say it is a good idea, but they sell each one for 50 USD - no thanks!

    As a GBA Micro fan who, despite all the protests about it being too small to play, is playing it more than any other console - I can't help but be fascinated by this bloody ridiculous idea. That screen is a LOT smaller than the GBA micro screen and that 'buy all four for 16 games' is absolutely mental. SEGA - you're mad as a banana tree, and I might have to get a black one and hope the other games are unlock-able.

    This would be a nice charm or keychain, but it's too expensive for that.

    I'm sure Sega will sell some separate accessories which will allow us to play the darn thing.

    This looks like it should have been a gashapon
    Its so tiny and the game selection is way too limited

    It would have been fun if they messed around with the proportions and the screen was gba sized like the adapter by default.
