I looked it up. But I'm still stumped. That's some old shit, never heard of it.

Totally had a neighbor buy one for their kid back in the day and pay me $20 to figure out how to set it up. I remember it having some weird Disney educational games.

who demanded this?

Silly Jeff, the Pico is not new.

For everyone asking 'Who demanded this!?" then I suggest you visit this topic and you'll understand now why this platform was added.
 
Great stuff from the staff, tempted to put a task on this page.....

This is some pretty obscure shit, Giantbomb. 
 
Do we also have Leapstars and Wonderswans on here?

I'm going to see if Game.com is on here. No it's not a site. Its an actual handheld gaming system from Tiger.

I bet the staff are bigger fans of Giant Bomb than fans of Giant  Bomb. It's not  so much nerdgasm as it is videogameasm.

Because 4 people demanded it? Where's my Sega Zone page?

God damn, I love Giant Bomb

Call me stupid, but I came here thinking that Sega had announced they were making a next-gen console. Ah well, that's what I get for not knowing the "Pico" existed. 

#17 Posted by Brunchies (2501 posts) -

I have no idea what that is, the wiki is adding some more obscure educational platforms.

#18 Posted by Dalai (7762 posts) -

How about we add pico de gallo as a platform? It's more of a video game platform than the Sega Pico ever was.

@DanielJW:   Stupid.
 
EDIT: Sorry, that sounded more mean than funny. Apologies.

Holy fucking shit, I had one of those when I was little.  Those are obscure? really?

I has one of these when I was a kid....I loved it.

Yes, I remember playing this as a kid, it was one of my first consoles.  Great times that thing.

Really? They were in all the toy stores during the 90s. Its not obscure at all.

I remember being in a tiny games shop  when I was younger looking at a Pico and being completely stumped about what it was. It was next to an Amiga CD 32  with  a video of soul blade playing above it... 
 
i ended up calling my character in secret of mana pico because I thought it was an awesome name.

about damn time!
I want a pico :|

#26 Posted by nintendoeats (6137 posts) -
@destruktive: I don't recommend it unless you have kids, or just like collecting game stuff like me. It doesn't really have anything beyond novelty to offer gamers. Its also a bitch to store.
