I can see the appeal of doing that.

I like that there's a filter that seeks to emulate a 1084S.

this gave me a good laugh - although no disc made me super sad.

Eh, take that nonsense with a grain of salt. They've got unfiltered with scanlines, and bilinear filtered with scanlines and a shadow mask.

I think YouTubers like "RetroRGB" have done a good job of making people get all giddy about the three little letters "PVM", and all it's done is seek to drive hardware prices up, and make people say silly things about a what is essentially a PC monitor that does TV resolutions.

Anyways.... end rant.

Haha that's terrible. I almost considered getting it, but now I'm kind of glad I didn't.

Although... it's screaming for a Raspberry Pi mod. Slap a RetroPie setup in there with a nice Sonic themed interface, and every 8 and 16 bit Sonic emulated. That would be pretty sexy.

[edit] One thing that annoyed me about that video was the off-the-cuff comment about how they should have made a version of Sonic Mania for original Megadrive/Gensis as it "wasn't exactly pushing modern hardware". A very short-sighted comment from someone who's clearly never written a bit of software in their life, let alone coded for old hardware.

[edit2]

Highest rated Sonic game in 15 years:

Number of people surprised: Zero. Take note, Sega. Stick to what you're good at, and stop trying to force modernisation on things that don't need it.

collectors edition looks cool, but based on overseas prices, will be around $130AU
