Would a Virtua Gun product promotion be possible?
This is perhaps not Forever Entertainments jurisdiction but given they remade this game, going to remake the sequel and maybe Virtua Cop is on the table (I mean, same basic programming), what if they or Sega collaborated with a hardware company to make light guns in shape of the Virtua Gun[segaretro.org] for the Sega Saturn?

Sinden or AimTrak are likely candidates to collab with given they're leading manufacturers of light gun controllers for modern computers. (More on light gun support on this thread.)
But Sega themselves have collaborated with Retro-Bit to produced official licensed Mega Drive and Sega Saturn controllers. Though Retro-Bit has never made light guns before.

It's probably too much to ask for such a product but I would love something of the like on my collection, especially as an official Sega brand product.

Nope, I simply accidentally included it. I removed it. They get their products from AimTrak.

But for the other two it could still be possible if Sega is willing to collab with them. Sega could make a bit of money from selling modern PC Virtua Guns thanks to Forever Entertainment remaking THotD games (and maybe Virtua Cop if MegaPixel gets the rights.)

If Sega decided this any other time before this remake, they might not get enough profit back from it. But I imagine Sega fans would want such a product not just for other on-rail shooting games but for Forever Entertainments remakes of Sega's on-rail shooters.

I'm probably just going to use a razor hydra or something but they definitely need to get a remote gun for this kinda game to find new life.

It would be nice if Sega re-released their hardware for modern PC even if it's with Retro-Bit or those mentioned light gun manufacturers.

Imagine the Light Phaser[segaretro.org] or the Menacer[segaretro.org] rereleased for modern PCs... though I think the Menacer would be better off wireless.
I've heard of the Dreamcast Gun[segaretro.org], or more precise, I've only heard about it on SegaRetro but I never seen or heard of it during Dreamcasts run, unless they were never sold or marketed in UK.

Either way there are quite a few classic Light Guns out there. Some of them broken on the inside and the plastic casings can perhaps be reused for PC light guns, or maybe with 3D printers these days or however Retro-bit recreate the controllers they can still mass produce the plastic components. I'm just curious why it hasn't been done already.
i would love virtua cop to come out
