Wow, damit hätte wohl kaum einer gerechnet. Retro-Bit hat sich eine offizielle Lizenz für die Herstellung von Hardware für SEGA-Konsolen in Nordamerika gesichert.
Den Anfang sollen nächstes Jahr Zubehörteile in der gleichen hohen Qualität wie die Originale machen, die aber zusätzlich über moderne Anschlußmöglichkeiten bspw für den PC verfügen.
