I will keep you guys updated if there is any news for a global release. What do you think about this Game Gear Micro?
I like the idea of a Game Gear Mini as it – and the Master System – has an underrated catalog. But…this is too small. I mean, how are you supposed to play the RPGs, for example? I think they’ve messed up with this. I hate to say that because I love SEGA, but the size is just too small IMO.
Yeah I agree. It’s nice they brought back this gem, but I don’t like the idea of it being small. I was looking at pictures and this will be the size of a Switch joy-con.
Aye, and I really wasn’t a fan of their size either. Only four games per Micro too seems like a poor choice for the price.
Yeah and each one is a different set of games. You would have to buy all four sets to get these games.
Yeah, it looks exceedingly small. A portable version of an already portable console is a weird idea anyway. This reminds me of the Game Boy Micro, which also had a screen that looked way too small to play on.
I remembered the Game Boy Micro. It was an interesting concept. It’s cool to be able to play your games on the go, but having it pocket sized will be difficult with a small screen.
