Debunked! No Sega Handheld in the pipeline

Racketboy posted up some interesting news yesterday about a new handheld coming out by Sega in 2007 code named the hedgehog. “The device will be equiped with a 566Mhz Samsung processor, and 128MB nVidia graphics processor based on the GeForce 3D 4500 (similar to the Gizmondo’s graphics chip), and a LCD display capable of 640X360 resolution and touch-screen capabilities. It will have an analog joystick, four buttons and two triggers. Supposedly, it will not have a traditional D-Pad, but solid details were not available.” The surprisingly powerful handheld was supposed to emulate past Sega systems from the Genesis all the way up to the Dreamcast. Sounds too good to be true doesn’t it? The original French gaming site posted an article citing that the handheld was a prank news story. If you are looking forward to Sega classics look no further than the Revolution’s virtual console or plug ‘n play Genesis TV games sold almost everywhere.
