SEGA Genesis Mini 2 will be in much shorter supply (around one-tenth) than original

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8RGornqWgw

Quote
My questions about Genesis Mini 2 shipments were forwarded to Sega of Japan's corporate office, which eventually confirmed that the new miniaturized console was a "Japan-only project" for the company.
"The Sega Genesis Mini 2 could only be produced in small numbers due to the global semiconductor shortage," reads a letter from the Sega president's office, so the company opted to produce a small Western batch of Genesis Mini 2s alongside its order of Mega Drive Mini 2s.
"The number of units for this project makes up around one-tenth of the total for the previous Genesis Mini," the letter states.

Game Gear, Master System, and SG-1000 games playable on Analogue Pocket OpenFPGA







Quote
The new OpenFPGA feature recently made available to Pocket owners with firmware update version 1.1 beta.
In short, this allows developers to make all new “cores” for the Pocket’s FPGA hardware, allowing it to run games from other retro game hardware it was not originally intended to replicate.
This is an official update from Analogue, which they’ve made clear since the Pocket’s original announcement was something they’d always intended for it to have, even if it couldn’t be there on release.
Now that it’s finally here, the first new community developed cores included ones made to run Sega Game Gear, Master System, and SG-1000 games, created by spiritualized1997.
You can download these straight from their Github page.
