This year, sixty years will have passed since Nihon Goraku Bussan Co. Ltd., the predecessor of Sega, was established on June 3, 1960. We are indebted to everyone who has patronized the Sega Group for many years, and would like to express our deep gratitude to all of you.

We want to astonish the world with breath-taking experiences that no one in the world has ever imagined. We want to be a company that continues to provide inspirational experiences to everyone in the new world of the future.

That is why we must overcome all obstacles and keep taking on new challenges.

The key message of the 60th anniversary, “GO SEGA,” expresses such aspirations.

The Sega Group is planning a variety of special contents for this 60th anniversary. Through these special contents, we will deliver the passion of the Sega Group to the entire world.

Haruki Satomi

Sega Holdings Co., Ltd.
Chairman (Representative Director)

so for the 60th, are they releasing a Mini Master System with every game? Mini Saturn with every game? AND/OR mini Dreamcast with every game?

or can we be expecting another iteration of megadrive games to be re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-released?

I can't wait for Altered Beast to come out for the 100th time in 60 fucking years! WAIT. Altered beast is only 32 years old...

I literally just came here to post about that. It’s cool that it supports both systems, but I wish there was some kind of plug adapter so you could move it between consoles. With this setup, there is no easy way to use it on both consoles. And once again, you have to cannibalize the CD drive, which means you can never play the discs you own.

I don’t know, I may still buy it. $200 to run rare Saturn games that cost hundreds of dollars is definitely worth the asking price. It’s more of a matter of this or gamble by waiting for the Satiator.

I'm tempted to wait for the Chinese knockoffs. Then 2 can be bought.

That's $350 dollaredoos... For that price I may as well wait for the satiator.

True you can use it in the DC as well, but I could get a knockoff GDEMU AND a knockoff Phoebe for less than $350...

In 1994, Sega launched the Mega Role-Playing Project to compete with Nintendo's RPG lineup. The first game from the project was Crusader of Centy, a Zelda clone! Learn more about it's creation and legacy.

I don't know how to feel about that. I want one, but that size is simply not usable.

4 games per colour. There's a screen magnifier.
