A PC Engine mini would be incredible, it's criminal that the original machine was never released here, it would right a wrong & I'd definitely pick one up, especially if it had some of the CD games on it.

A Vectrex would be amazing!

Other than that I'd quite like an Atari Jaguar, Atari Lynx and a Gamecube with additional Gameboy Player content.
Problem with Vectrex is that once you take it out of it's dedicated cab it loses at lot of what makes it worth playing. The only way to properly play the system is with it's original system, but maybe with a multi-cart.

A Jag system would be interesting as myself (along i assume with most others) have played max 1 or 2 games for the system.

I'd also like to see a 32x Sega mini, perhaps also including some Sega CD games.

Much though I like the idea of a Vectrex Mini, it's not really the sort of system that you could make much smaller and cheaper these days. There certainly aren't any cheap off-the-shelf vector displays you can buy and to make one work you'd also need millisecond accurate timings, which you aren't going to get by running an emulator on an ARM SoC. That's not to say that someone couldn't build a more robust and slightly more portable modern equivalent, with all the games and homebrew included, but it wouldn't be cheap.

I'd love to see a Game Boy console, or at least some sort of modern collection released.

It would be great to play some of those original releases on a full size TV screen! :D 8)

True, and there wouldn't be any point without the vector graphics screen. But how good would it be to have a vectrex-alike that had all the release games, the best and rarest of the homebrew, and the ability to play bin files from a USB stick or SD card.

Can I have a Vectrex XL, with a bigger, higher resolution screen instead of a mini?

In other news, someone actually asked Phillips about a CD-i Mini and they replied "We'll see what we can do". :lol:

Is there a handheld device that runs emulators well? I'd like to have a ColecoVision on the go. Might need custom controls...

You should be able to run ColEm on most handheld Windows and Android devices.

Getting something that resembles the Coleco controller might prove a little tricky, but if you just want to play the games most modern controllers should suffice.

Probably something that I never had as a child, and dont currently collect for, so probably Turbo Grafx/PC Engine or something would be ideal.

And why not include a few GBA games too? It would be an easy way to extend the catalogue on it without taking up much memory.
