    I highly doubt that the accessory described in <a href="http://segaretro.org/Sega_Digio_II" target="_blank">this article</a> exists. Why? Well, apart from the very poorly shopped photos and the near-total lack of information about the item online, I find it quite hard to believe that Sega would release a camera based on the N64 cartridge design. Unless anyone can prove that this thing is real, I suggest that the article be binned.

    My intuition tells me it's a deliberate red herring intended to serve as a way of telling if someone steals Sega Retro's content wholesale.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this was just a <a href="http://info.sonicretro.org/Dreameye" target="_blank" style="background: url(http://info.sonicretro.org/images/5/50/Reticon.png) right no-repeat; padding-right: 20px; border-bottom: 1px dotted #3366BB; color: #3366BB; cursor:pointer; text-decoration:none;" class="wiki">Dreameye</a> prototype, but the lack of information is still interesting. Is there a way we can contact SoJ for information?

    Yeah, this thing is definitely a shop of a Nintendo 64 cartridge, and doesn't look like anything SEGA would officially make.

    According to the history it may have been an anonymous edit that was accidentally reassigned to Scarred Sun one day, so we may not know.

    Well after a google search, no sites detail anything about this product, wikipedia hasn't any information either, infact the only page I could find of this product, is the one stated in the first post.

    Welp, this.
    Well, I'll say this much—I actually was the person who wrote this.

    If I recall correctly, I originally got this from a really old site on archive.org that was importing shit from Japan. What I'm guessing is that this might have been a mockup that didn't make it to market or it was some misinterpretation of the real Digio.

    Unfortunately, most of my hundreds of bookmarks were lost when my HDD died so I can't get the page. :/

    Whatever your source, the paper-cutout-shop up there kills any doubt in my mind that this is fake. I feel it should be removed.

    If it's an official mockup, the information will become available to support that, and it can be readded as such; however, we shouldn't have articles based entirely on guesswork.

    I don't think it needs to be removed entirely. Maybe a note of the question of it's legitimacy somewhere on the page could be added?
