    Wow, you think the practices of these companies can't get any lower but this is disgusting.

    Biggest issue is making people buy 4 separate devices to play all the games, its not like there is enough waste being shat out by large companies just to make a quick buck.

    And the "big window"?! if it needs a bigger screen, just include one. I guess one more piece of land fill waste wont matter at this point.

    It's a great device in principle, must admit I was also more than a bit I insulted by them milking for as many additions.

    Nothing wrong with the variety, but restricting the games to make you rebuy several is a joke.

    Who would buy something with a less than 3cm screen? The graphics may be primitive but that's too small!

    Anyone who bought one of them Tamagotchi things, I presume...

    It's a cute little novelty. Nothing more.
    It looks way too small to hold comfortably, perhaps even for a child. It would have been better served by just charging £150 for one model that has all the games, or perhaps even putting out some kind of proprietary micro-SD like the old game carts. I expect anyone seriously interested in the games will already have them, though, if not on an original Game Gear then on some kind of emulator.

    Japanese people love novelty items like this. But I doubt it will sell much outside of Japan.

    Re: Sega announces the Game Gear Micro handheld console

    These will be a bit of fun Shame they are only available pre-build, i'd love to build a kit for these!

    Reminds me of the Pocket Sprite (https://pocketsprite.com/) which I really enjoyed putting together. Thats smaller than one of these, and its VERY playable - much more so than you would ever think...and I don't have small hands by any means.

    I hope they make it out of japan for a reasonable price - i'd be keen to pick one up.

    I don't mind the idea but honestly the price is a little too high imo (it would likely be £50 by the time it gets here imo)and it is insulting that it's restricted to just 4 games (wouldn't be shocked if it's the same board with a jumper like on the nes, I think, mini console)
