Be too expensive to put out a Dreamcast mini right now. They'd have to sell it for over 100. Considering Sony struggled with PS mini one could only assume most Sega could do would be 32X.

I'm going to assume it's a Dreamcast Classic Edition until further notice.

And just in case there's doubts about the lineup, here's what Sega can include from their own library:

  1. ChuChu Rocket
  2. Crazi Taxi
  3. Crazy Taxi 2
  4. Daytona USA 2001
  5. Fighting Vipers 2
  6. Jet Grind Radio
  7. Puyo Puyo 4
  8. Rez
  9. Samba de Amigo
  10. Seaman
  11. Sega Bass Fishing
  12. Shenmue
  13. Shenmue II
  14. Skies of Arcadia
  15. Sonic Adventure
  16. Sonic Adventure 2
  17. Sonic Shuffle
  18. Space Channel 5
  19. Virtua Fighter 3tb
  20. Virtua Striker 2
  21. Virtua Tennis

I like this list, I'm in.



No Power Stone 1 or 2...... Sega needs to contact Capcom

No they don't. SEGA does not even have a half the star power they did during their prime. They cant even make a above good Sonic game

They own Atlus.

Persona + Shin megami Tensei (SMT) + Etrian Oddesey + Catherine.

Sega itself..... is basically just Yakuza games atm.

Still they have enough IP, if they wanted to they could make a half decent attempt at a console.

Wow. No Sega could not make a console with first party software alone being the main drivers. That's like saying Nintendo would be fine if you limited them to only a handful of their IP, and for that handful you can't pick from Mario Kart, Smash, Zelda, Mario, Pokemon, Splatoon, or Animal Crossing.

32X? The core idea of a retro mini is that it's something people look back on fondly and would actually want to revisit. 😯

I will bet 1000vg$ on the fact salnax is right

You mean about it being a Dreamcast Classic?

I'll take that bet!

Sega will become closely affiliated with Nintendo, essentially a second party partner. Can't think of anything else that would rile up the games industry.

It'd be interesting to see, that's for sure.

Can the new raspberry pi with 8 gb ram emulate Dreamcast games?  Not sure if they put new processor in there also.  I'm just thinking about costs.  You can't release a mini more than 100 and expect to sell well.  Heck I got the Genesis mini and I believe that was 80 retail when it came out right.

Sony struggled with PS1 mini because nobody wanted to buy it. PS1 games have mostly aged badly and as popular as Playstation is each generation they don't have anything close to the nostalgic clout that Nintendo has nor the sense of their old games being timeless classics like how a lot of Nintendo games are considered. So replicating anything close to the success of the NES and SNES classics was never gonna happen for them. I mean Sega also doesn't have either of those things for the most part outside of the original Sonic games but at the very least Dreamcast has aged a lot better than PS1 games. PS1 games, being at the crude start of the 3D era and most of them looking pretty bad even at the time compared to N64 games, I imagine are pretty hard to play now.

If Sega is gonna come out with hardware it should be a handheld that plays all their consoles. Preload it with like 15 games, sell it for $100 but then have an online store where you can download Master System, Genesis, Saturn, and Dreamcast games for like $1, $3, $5, $7 respectively. I don't know if that'd sell but it would be cool and I can't imagine a hardware idea for them better than that.

The only thing that I can think is that Sega are getting into the handheld business/teaming up with a bigger player like Samsung etc to produce a Switch like tablet/gaming device.

This could be big.... but I dont see how SEGA has a chance in that battle.

I'm still betting on SEGA bringing arcade business home.

Why Samsung and not Nintendo?

Mod the Switch Lite to look like a Game Gear and start Sega Online for $9.99/year.
