Hard but fun game!!!
Hands up, who else did it?
We got our Master System II when it hit $99 too. My sister, brother and I pooled our pocket money and started saving. My brother and I both got $1 a week, my older sister $2. At that rate it would have taken us six months to get the money together. Luckily after a Collingwood v Hawthorn game, walking through the carpark of Waverley oval my sister and I found $70 on the ground! Some poor pissed bloke probably lost a whole days pay in 91 money but we had our Sega pretty fast.
Thats the one!, thanks
Edit: looked at some photos of it, really brought back some memories! thanks again
'Influencers' have just started spamming videos, the NDA just lifted I guess.
media outlets too
this guy gets it eh
unexpected and very cool option Sega!!!
M2 strikes again!
Usual round up of videos and comments. They're either
(1) OMG I loved the genesis anyone remember sonic man this is awesome!
(2) OMG emulation lag this doesn't have all the hacks I wanted only limited games you should buy a real genesis and an OSSC if you're serious.
From the information I can extrapolate between the extremes of (1) and (2), it looks like this is on par with the NES and SNES mini consoles, and would be an excellent stocking filler for anyone who had a high nostalgic appreciation for the MegaDrive era of gaming.
SmokeMonster is seething over it yet again, like he did with all the previous mini consoles. I mean, I love the guy. But sometimes he's got to come out of his basement and see how regular people live in the real world.
Only Sega would spend years releasing compilations discs and then release good hardware packaged with the games.
They're as backward as they were in 1995.
Any reports of how much storage it has? And how much is used?
After watching the reviews I can definitely see the product isn't for me, but I can see some of my friends picking this one up just just for a nostalgic quick hit.
compilation packs are great, and work well on modern consoles (I have purchased the Switch one and plenty of Sega Ages downloadable games).
this guy, he's good because the addition of the bundled controllers makes it more authentic.
What I want next from Sega is to bring some of the unconverted home.
Any idea what's inside this thing? Typical rubbish emulation board or something different?
I think Spawn Wave on Youtube pulled one apart.
Modern Vintage Gamer opened one up. He's highly technical (right down to silicon layer) and didn't recognise the SoC nor have much luck finding tech specs online for what made it tick.
It might take a little while for the hardware boffins to catch up on this one.
keen to watch his video, and kind of exciting to see Sega release bespoke HW.
as long as the specs for the SoC mention blast processing then its all good
I'm not sure if it's actually bespoke, or just an ARM SoC vendor that's not as popular as current market offerings.
I'm sure it'll be pulled apart in the coming weeks however. Lots of hype for this little box.
it's coming, it's coming, it's coming, OMG OMG OMG
Still two weeks to go, my friend.
