DreamGEAR, LLC is a distributor of unauthorized Famiclone consoles and game accessories, founded in 2001. They are among one of the few English plug 'n play companies left.

Beginning in the mid-2010s, DreamGEAR rebranded their Famiclone and plug-and-play devices under the brand name "My Arcade Gaming".[1] Some time around 2016-17, My Arcade became a separate division of the company entirely, with the DreamGEAR branch now being used solely for game console accessories.

DreamGEAR has a licensing agreement with G-Mode, the rights holder to most of Data East's video game library, and therefore some of their games (e.g. BurgerTime) are included, officially, on some of DreamGEAR's products. Further licensing agreements would later be held with companies such as Bandai Namco Entertainment, Taito, and Capcom, for a variety of devices.
