Just bought this year's console at Toys R Us today. Was actually there for my toddler and I ended up picking up the AtGames Genesis! I turned the corner and there it was! Manufacturing date on the box said it was made July 2014, so I assume this is the current version. I started up Sonic and it appears the sound issues that others have talked about from past years are still there. But, overall, love having Eternal Champions and Chaken at my disposal now!
