In Topic: Sega Genesis Mini Announced!

You ever notice that whatever gets announced...People always want something else?

 

I mean it's very cool that now, with the internet companies can see what people really want...But here I am happy for a Genesis Mini...And most Twitter comments are When are ya gonna make a Saturn Mini?, Why no 6 button Controller? (OK This one I get since Japan gets one), and How about a Dreamcast Mini?  

I'm wondering if this might be the reason we only got the three button: http://retro-bit.com...a-collaboration can't say for sure, but this is the only reason I can think of. 

 

I saw the twitter comments too, it makes me chuckle because people seem to forget that both the saturn and the dreamcast were massive failures. Don't get me wrong, they're both very innovative consoles, but both times playstation blew them both out of the water.

If only they stopped altogether using "iconic", "legendary" and slow-poke "reveals" ... it's like the world has gone dumb ... it worked a couple of times but we are in 2019 where Netflix releases all episodes of a series at once ... so enough with the nonsense, the made up hype and thrill of expectation.

I get that, it seems like nobody learned from the PS1 classic debacle.

I'm torn between it and the more limited harder to find 2018 atgames Genesis that slipped out before Christmas.  I'm sure most here would laugh at atgames, but that one they gave up trying to do it in house and licensed genesis gx emulator from the author.  Combine that stability with the cart slot on top, real controllers as a choice and a built in on the right side SD slot that allows you to basically play any game (outside of Virtua Racing due to the SVP chip) and it's hard to really ignore it.  The only way to match that for a more compact size still and games would be about a $300 investment into an everdrive and a mega sg from analogue.

I don't blame you man, that 2018 one is pretty neat too. Having Master System games is pretty sweet. The only retailer that seems to carry it in my area is Target, you might want to check there.

Recently saw this at work, we finally cleared all the 2017 Genesis stock. It seems like Target is the only US retailer carrying this right now.

Also, GBC games work if you remove the "c" from the .gbc file extension and turn it into a .gb file.
