This reminds me of the time I walked into a local Best Buy and found a brand new Super Nintendo controller that was compatible with both PC and SNES. Maybe the Dreamcast could get the same treatment?

It'd be nice if they created an all-in-one box or cable to directly connect the DC via HDMI. Except those handful of incompatible games would still not work.


They claim to be for sega consoles. But not limited to them. So I take this as there will be licenced sega style controllers for sega consoles and most likely usb controllers also. Or with dual cords.

Bluetooth wireless with a receiver to plug into the console would be sweet though.

Possibly a master system controller too???

"announced a licensing agreement with SEGA of America to produce accessories FOR SEGA’s gaming platforms, including but not limited to the SEGA Genesis, SEGA Saturn and SEGA Dreamcast."
Copied from retro-bit announcement.

If anything I would hope for a modem replacement that is ready for modern internet to bypass the dreampi. Plug and play for all online games.

I could finally play online if they made a new BBA...we got rid of all our wall jacks years ago. Please do this Retro-bit, that would be awesome. ;)

While im skeptical on if the Consoles side is true, the evidence is starting to pile up and well come on it would be amazing! Not only am i going to buy a bunch of Satrun & Dreamcast controllers now but also a console :D

I'm gonna be the negative nancy and say it: had it really killed them to update at least the analog stick to a more modern, PS4 style stick? The dpad could have been updated as well to be more like the Saturn, but changing the analog stick would really have been a simple task IMO..I might be alone on this, but it annoys me when they replicate bad/annoying features just to stay authentic to the original version of the item.
