Game Gear Micro

In celebration of its 60th anniversary, Sega has just announced a tiny $50 Game Gear Micro handheld console which is going to be available this year in October. The console is so tiny it will dwarf in the on the palm of your hand. However, don’t be fooled by its small size, as it contains several classic games pre-installed inside it.

The Game Gear Micro’s tiny size makes it just 80 mm wide and 43mm tall in height. From the announcement video, you can clearly see how small it is and how it sits on the far ends of your fingertips. The screen, on the other hand, is just an inch wide, but Sega is also giving a magnifying glass attachment which was also previously available for the original console back in the day. The magnifying glass attachment will provide a better view of the screen and the games running on the console.

The console will launch this year on October 6 for ¥4,980, which is about $46 US dollars. From the reveal, we can understand that the console will launch in Japan for now on the launch date set for October.
