I remember years ago at a press conference they were going on about the potential of eye tracking and their research into it. I'd be surprised if they made a new console (unless it's another retro one), so maybe they're releasing an eye tracking peripheral for various systems? Long shot, but who knows.

They could be partnering for PSVR2

I hope it’s a console or arcade tech.

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.

Not really, it was more due to the bad choice of games on it. The PS1 Classics certainly sell good enough to keep coming all the time and a lot of remakes of that era being made and sold with success.

Yet Sony was lazy and most their ports were EU ports of games that ran lazy.   Demolition derby and ridge racer 3 ran worse on PS Classic than original games.  Sony fucked uped.  Only thing good about PS Classic was mod community.



Mentioned PS5 far too much.
Sony bought Sega and Sega is making a PSP3 for them to compete with the Switch.
Thank me later.

I'd like new arcade tech. Arcades need to be given more love after the pandemic is over.

 The Sega announcement is probably a game launcher and store The Sega Store, Everyone seems to be doing that nowadays.

And I have a feeling all these online game stores opening up will lead to a disaster of E.T. Atari proportions.

Difficult to see how you lose money on a glorified emulator/ROM site. Especially when it's on hundreds of millions of devices at $5.99/year. It's money for old rope.



Nov 2016 - NES outsells PS1 (JP)

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

Hey now Sony found a way to lose money on PlayStation Classic.  They were practically giving them away at 20-30 dollars at end.



Would be pretty cool if Sega got back in the hardware game.



The hyperbole is strong with this one.

BUT...I'll go way out into left field for a guess that is absolutely not going to happen. A Sega branded 2 TB M.2 stick with every Sega PC game on it plus a Sega emulator for classics and game launcher pre-installed.

We don't know what it is yet so we can't say its hyberbole.

Something definitely is going to happen: https://www.gematsu.com/2020/03/sega-launches-60th-anniversary-website-sega-shiro-character

SEGA began the whole marketing for their 60th birthday back in March leading up to the actual day. 

The last bit, once again, is not big news. The only console announcement that we be shocking on a industry level is a new console from SEGA. Why in the world would anybody else care about a SEGA legacy console? SEGA's best console was the Genesis and that got a regular announcement! That is best SEGA has offered in terms of popularity then they announce another lesser mini/legacy console as a 60th anniversary?  Why would he interview tech specialist and executives about a glorified emulator? c'mon guys.

I'm thinking some new tech or service that is just not for use by SEGA exclusively.
