Sega Pico/Beena Thread.

Discussion in 'General Sega Discussion' started by Kiddo Cabbusses, May 9, 2010.

  1. Hello. I decided to make this thread as I was working on <a href="http://www.segaretro.org/Japan_Region_Pico_games" target="_blank">The Japanese Sega Pico Game entry article</a>, which is a heavy workload.

    I don't really know what much to put in this thread, but perhaps other folks here have stuff to contribute? Besides the list there, I got some Youtube uploads of Pico games which can be <a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/kiddocabbusses#grid/user/97F963A37A737E61" target="_blank">viewed here</a>

    I do know that there's a lot of Japan (and apparently Korean or other Asian) Sega Pico releases that have become completely obscure due to the apparent turn-off archivning a "Edutainment" game console. Rather unfortunate, as some of the Pico games are full of bizarre novelty value, ranging from the full-frontals of Cutey Honey Flash to the IMPOSSIBLE of Pokemon games on a Sega console.

    You guys can also use this for a general Beena thread if anything more on that comes up. I know nothing about it though.
     
  2. Dangit guys, can't you bring up anything?

    <a href="http://www.segaretro.org/Japan_Region_Pico_games#KIDS_COMPUTER_PICO_Software" target="_blank">http://www.segaretro.org/Japan_Region_Pico...R_PICO_Software</a>

    Now this article has the 208 entries which comprise the standalone game list finished up. With about 50 or so more listings we'll have a complete list of JP Pico games, -hopefully-.

    Just picked a PAL Pico up for a fiver. These things are region free correct? Would love to find that Sonic Gameworld game..
     
  4. I don't know how it works for a PAL Sega Pico, but there is certainly no region protection blocking my US Pico from running JP Pico games.

    I suspect they'd probably just run slower and with borders if thats the case, thanks. :)
     
  6. Super bump time. Did anyone see the new Sega Pico dumps on the no-intro forums?

    They're available here currently. http://www.axifile.com/en/5068C5EBAE

    I'll up them on my own webspace shortly.

    The interesting thing about this batch is that it's all European/PAL-region games;

    EDIT: And then after I make this post I find the ROM dumper site, durp!

    http://team-europe.blogspot.com/

    Team-Europe is hoping to be able to get much of the Japanese games. I'd like to ship my copies for dumping if the costs were reasonable...

    I bought a PAL pico a few years ago and at the time bought US copy of Sonic's Gameworld - and worked/works fine :v:

    being an asshole =P
    Oi, just now I see this thread.

    Does anybody know what's the hardware of the Beena?
     
  9. I think GerbilSoft might know, but the best I got is "It's not Megadrive-based and it's not compatible with the Pico".

    There's a few Youtube ups of Beena footage and TV Ads.

    Some stuff I found that I distributed over the #sega to kiddo , but posting it anyway over here :U

    Lul its in korean none of you can read it (Smugface)

    anyways...Sega pico was released through Samsung as usual. Launch titles were "A Day at a Kinder Garden(?)" which were fully translated along with "Adventures with Mickey Mouse" and the other 13s. The consoles were 19,80,000 won. Games were 39600 won. (Which is like $198 for the console, Man thats crazy! Considering Megadrive was like 10,00,000 won) and ($39.6 for games)

    EDIT: DERP GUYS ITS NOT $1980

  11. The most interesting note about that picture is that it specifically shows how those special accessories interface.... through the actual Pico cartridge. O_O

  13. In the Korean-texted picture, I can identify 101 Dalmations and The Magic School Book. I don't know what the latter two are but based on the picture they're games that used the two accessories shown. I think the Pico also has a Pooh game inside.

    In the expo-like thing, the kids there are playing Mushiking. Mushiking is pretty notable for being a frnachise Sega tried to push, so it probably warrants special attention.

    The Pokemon game shown in the 3rd pic is one I don't have, and is the third of the three, IIRC.
    I still have video of the "Hiragana Katakana Kakechatta!" game on Youtube.

    Do Beena games work on that? I was under the impression Beena was a more powerful system, so should depart somewhat from the MD HW....

    What's the copyright on the Pokemon games?

    Do Pico games have serial numbers? (tying into the T series code discussion)

    Do we have media scans, not just dumps?

    (all of the above here, but for Beena)

    Do we have a list of Beena games? I know less of Beena than Pico.

    It's a start I guess. Incidentally, that page is much better than ours. =P

    That list is probably copied straight from the official Beena website.
