Something else just dawned upon me.
Im sure you all heard of/seen the "Analogue Pocket" Where its a remade gameboy/portable console with various compatability.
Would this be possible with the Dreamcast where it can play the dreamcast games, be portable and able to dock? Ideally i would like something where it functions as a dreamcast console but also able to have some versatility.
Would it be possible? Sure.
Would it be cheap or easy for someone to make? Probably not.
The Analogue Pocket is basically an FPGA-based reimplementation of the hardware it supports. There have been people that have done various parts of the Dreamcast hardware in an FPGA form, but it would probably require a much more complex (and thus expensive) FPGA than the Analogue Pocket uses (or more than one FPGA). Also, it would take time and effort to develop. This isn't to say it won't happen (because, ultimately, it probably will eventually), it just isn't going to be a very affordable option when it does come about, likely.
