I suppose one would have to ask Gerbil about that.

But in general, it seems at times like the Beena's specs would line up with a Windows 95 PC, considering what I have played so far.
Precure in particular hardly had much in regard to extra animation, voice/sound effect quality (Why the hell do they sound just as muffled as on the Pico? For Christ's sake, Sega...), or game innovation.

The Windows MIDI sound is easily the most disappointing aspect... It sounds like a subversion of the Pico sound evolution I was expecting.

I wanted to share an ebay auction that I came across. Seller has two complete Japanese copies of Sonic the Hedgehog Gameworld for sale, $25 +$4 shipping:

I had already bought the game off ebay a few years back, so I have interest in this auction but I am certain some of you here might be so I figured I'd share it. $29 for the game is a sweet deal, given how rarely it appears on ebay.

I noticed the game is green in color, whereas mine is yellow. I know some of you have been keeping track of color variations on Pico games so I wasn't sure if that was new info or not.

Hum, this topic could be useful.
Since long ago, I've got a exemplary of japanese Sonic Gameworld but I don't know it can used on american/european pico or I need to import a japanese one.
In short, is the pico region locked ?

For the most part, all models of Pico are technically identical and will run the same software. The Pico is a region-free console.

Looks like the <sega> IPB tag is broken, as that's what it should have linked to =P

I'll consider buying JP Gameworld if you folks are willing to watch me Livestreaming it. :P

While it is ROM dumped, the emulation seems prettty bad... the Story Mode appears to break critically on the last page, rendering it unwinnable. I need to see how it's supposed to play.

Has anyone seen a western Pico game in one of those japanese clam shell cases before? Found an auction in Italy that has a copy of the Richard Scarry game with one here: http://www.ebay.co.u...I-/391686974198 The case doesn't have a Japanese Pico logo at the top so either it's unique to Italy or maybe a custom cover? EDIT: ah nevermind its mentioned on the wiki lol

Also my current Pico collection for the fun of it. Finally got a boxed and fully working system and it came with the Tails game which is nice.

Oh and in case anyone missed it I did a let's play of Sonic's Gameworld last year, though it runs at a slower PAL speed and this was when I only had a slightly-wonky Pico.
