Technically there's no need for a DC mini but is there a consumer desire for such a product? If Sega think they can make money from this they'll pursue it. I'm not sure how successful the MD mini was/is but I'm sure that will inform their thinking.
But if a DC mini is realised then they're going to have to make some big calls. For example would it support online play for the likes of Outrigger, Daytona, AFO? That would take substantial investment and once that committment would be made you might as well have an online store.
If it doesn't have online capability it might sell ok at the right price point and with the right selection of games.However, for me it would be a pass as others have said there are currently many different ways we can enjoy the library already.
