    Surely this is a collector's item only? Nobody who remembers having one as a child has hands small enough to actually use this.

    The boxes do look good, and I only just saw the special one where you actually get a display box with all 4 frames. The only problem with that is it probably won't be released outside Japan and will cost a fortune to try and import.

    So Sega put down the crack pipe for long enough to play to their nostalgia properties, however they saw either a Nintendo watch or a gameboy micro and said "hold my beer"?

    I'd probably buy it even knowing that it wasn't playable.

    What's the price ? Cuz that's too small and I don't want to buy 4 just to have all the games. I would have prefered to have all the games in one. Otherwise it looks cute and all, even tho it looks damn unplayable and come on ... A screen magnifier ? If you have to release a scren magnifier, MAYBE it's because the screen is way too small despite the "micro" concept.
    It's cool and all, but I think Sega should have made some compromise between the micro size and the screen being so small only an ant could play with it

    I'm sorry but, are they completely stupid wasting resources for such a finger braker?!
    Nobody plays with this longer than 30 minutes. Also why not at least putting more games on it?

    I love the Game Gear but if they want to re-release it, why not in the form factor of a GBA sort of thing and with 30 - 50 games on it?

    Well, I'm glad I can enjoy the games on my Switch (RetroArch).

    I don't know what was sega thinking. They basically produced a glorified rubbish with a very limited value.

    wow nice... but buying each system for the games does not seem like it's worth it. unless it's like 10 dollars each one.... (no sure how much 10 dollars is in yen but still)

    For me, I will not get it. I find that it is very inconvenient to look the smaller screen, but maybe that is just me? Go back and see if you can play on the Nintendo ds with its really small screen now a days, though the 3ds and 2ds XL consoles have a good screen size and are fine to use. This will sell fairly Id say,so many people will enjoy it.

    How the fuck is anyone with hands larger than those of a baby going to play this comfortably?

    People complained about only 20-30 games on mini consoles and now sega brings 4 for the same price. Nice.

    Clips... To make the screen larger. Is there also an accessory to shrink my hands with it? I'm pretty sure I'd break it after a second of use trying to find a comfortable position to play it.
