Do you miss the days when a home console was nothing more than a slot for cartridges, a device that immediately played games as soon as they turned on? Well, someone is trying to make those days come back.
If he gets RoadBlaster, I'm in.

i have been following their progress via their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/pa...
Sounds very cool. If it gets supported then I'm definitely in.
I miss them nostalgically but I wouldn't want to move back that way, unless it was a new side console or my old ones for a bit. I love the new systems.
You know, after reading the article, I want this. However, I believe they don't plan on having Internet support yet he talks about Fighting games. I shouldn't have to point out that Fighting games are one of the genres which NEED online. Sure, the hardcore pro gamer scene is offline, the tournaments that matter are offline, there's a whole offline community, but online is absolutely huge and not everyone has access to a thriving offline community and sometimes you just want to play online. Sorry but the thing needs basic online features. Internet isn't a PS4 thing, it dates way back to Saturn with games like Duke Nukem and Bomberman, even further back in Japan. There's no excuse that old systems did not have it, some did, many which did not planned it, and it was desired but hard to implement.If the Internet features were as easy to include and the Internet wasn't so new then they would have been there online since the Atari. TL;DR: Include basic Internet functionality.
It looks like an Atari Jaguar.
They got the original molds for both the system and the carts. but it wont be a jaguar under the hood.
I'm in and I'll be hooking this up to my sony pvm via that s-video output.
So this is new console made for new original games, retro style? If so, I'm in.
This sounds really cool. I'd buy one for sure if they get it done.
I'd love for them to make it as powerful & capable as PS2 or Xbox original, GC, possible even as powerful as PS3... It would be beyond unbelievable to fire up games like a new 3D Contra, that also had the older games in the collection, on the cart, & be able to just fire them up, with immediate consequences. It is a brilliant idea, as seeing your Sega logo appear immediately, as soon as your cartridge is loaded, & power is given, then being able to just press your buttons & go straight into game. Also NO INTERNET, NO HALF A$$ED, HALF FINSIHED, cabbage PATCH games..... Sounds fantastic.. Imagine playing games like that, from Atari 2600 classics, to Nintendo 64 (the death of cartridge), as well as being capable of more recent stuff, such as PS2, GC, XB, & even up to PS3 capabilities... I love the idea of the Jaguar case re-use...that is genius... Sega should follow suit with Dreamcast, & add new internals that make it capable of retro games, as well as making it near the power of PS5, XB2, as by time of release, it would need a bit of future proofing.. They could use the Dreamcast shell, with an enhanced version of the DC controller....& unlike this other effort, it could be online capable.... I think, also, Sega could potentially make some sick production money, through a kickstarter campaign...This would be sick.. Anyhow, this could spark a revolution of console gaming, as we know it..... Just for the elimination of long ass load times...I would pay the asking price.. Anyhow, I would like to see these games on this machine to start with. BlackThorne, Contra 3, Ghouls'n'Ghosts, Ghosts'n'Goblins, MK, SF2, Strider 1&2, Outrun, Daytona, Oddworld: Abe's Odysee & Exodus, Heart Of Darkness, Castlevania: SOTN, Soul Reaver, MediEvil, MGS (PSone to MGS4), Raystorm, Einhander, R-Type, Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure, Super Star Wars 1-3, Alien 3, Tekken's (up to & including TTT2), etc, etc... This would be a nice, varied collection, for me. Man, the potential would be ENDLESS & brilliant.
Never go full retard.
