In recent years, video game companies have released some of their classic consoles as small as 10 inches. SNES or SNES Mini, Sega Genesis or the classic PlayStation, the range is huge. Even though Sega was still releasing Genesis 2, the tiny version of the Sega Dreamcast never materialized. We learn why the cause is a video produced by YouTuber Adam Koralik, and the retro gaming fan: “You can’t see it here!”
Koralik was involved in Sega’s re-release of Shenmue. When the first games were released in 2018, he asked the video game company why they didn’t happen for a mini Dreamcast. Koralik asked him for a money question. For technical reasons, the desired console wouldn’t be sold in terms of more than 300 dollars on the market. What a great price would have raged fans, who would expect something closer to 100 o’clock, the reason why the project was cancelled.
