Sega Announces New Portable? Jun. 13th, 2009 @ 07:06 PM Reply

Has our dreams came true? Is Sega returning to the console business? Well, kinda. The Sega Vision is coming in 2009.
Q: Is it a console?
A: No.
Q: Is it a portable?
A: Yes, no, kinda.
Q: WTF?
A: Think of it as a well...
Q: NOT AN ANSWER.
A: It's a PMP, a portable media player. Like an iPod, except not gay.
Q: NOOOOOOOOO!
A: Not a question.

Well it does play games, but not anything major. It can play java games, BUT WAIT! That means emulation possibilities! Brilliant Sega, a portable NES, SNES, and Genesis that can play music!

GOOD NEWS:
It's out this year! Only a couple months left to guess when it comes out!

BAD NEWS:
For anyone not in Europe, it's un-available. Maybe it's a test to see if it will succeed, let's hope for a world release soon.

Pfffft. The only reason the Dreamcast fell is because of the Saturn.

Looks like crap. No wonder why they are testing it on europeans first.

It's like medicine, you first test it on animals before humans.

How smoothly does a Dreamcast emulator run that is written in Java?

Why don't they take a serious shot at being a competitor to the PSP? They just have a Gamegear 2 with a digital tv tuner, a camera with more mega pixels than its current, wifi and a button config that makes video games playable.

There. I would buy that.

Nice try, say that to millions of people who love their ipods over the world, because it totally isn't the most sold music device.

I guess they're just trying to make enough money to make a comeback, or a secret ploy to invite hackers to make it into the next sega console.
