If you think about gaming 24/7, then you need these Sega & Sony gaming watches in your life.
Seriously, just take a look at these watches from Takara Tomy Arts, perfectly recreated miniature replicas of classic machines from the era of the console wars.
If you’re too young to have been alive back in those days, then Sony and Sega were at each others throats for a long time…
… well, Sega were pretty much at everyone’s throats back in those days, but things have calmed down a lot now!
Enough waffling; let’s take a look at the gaming watches closer up and check out the designs!
Sega Saturn & Sony PS1 Watches Keep Retro Gamers In Time For Tea
Never be late for that family dinner or online gaming session ever again thanks to these super Sega & Sony gaming watches.
Just take a look at the detail in these pieces! Takara Tomy Arts have perfectly recreated the original PS1, the PSone, and both colour variants of the Sega Saturn for us to wear on our wrists.
And you know what? They don’t look bulky or tacky either.
Complete with branded straps that reference a key characteristic of the console, each watch pays homage perfectly to a classic age of gaming.
And that’s not the only surprise…
To view the time, users simply have to open the disc hatch by pressing a button and find a classic game stored inside!
The PSone plays hosts to Everybody’s Golf, while the PS1 houses Arc the Lad.
The SEGA Saturn variants also come with miniature likenesses of Virtua Fighter 2 (black) and Sakura Wars 2 (grey).
Where Are These Sega & Sony Watches Available?
This is the question that we’re all asking ourselves, and the answer is from Gashapon vending machines.
If you’ve been to Japan or live there, then you’ll have seen Gashapon machines dotted around as you’ve gone about your day-to-day business. They’re full of exciting goods and products, and these Sega & Sony gaming watches will be available from February 2022 onwards.
Don’t worry; I’m sure people will be buying them by the bucket load and putting them on eBay and other second-hand selling sites the day that they come out, obviously at an inflated price.
Still, can you put a price on a never-ending game time?
Our Favourite Gaming Watch
Gaming watches have been around in some shape or form for a while now, and our favourite has to be this Nelsonic Zelda Game Watch…
… because we can’t have an article that mentions the console wars without throwing something Nintendo into the mix!
Not only does this watch look cool, but it also comes with a basic port of the very first Legend of Zelda title on it too.
Now you can be the Hero of Time as well as making it game time all the time…
… that sentence hurt my head!
