The SEGA Genesis Lives!
The SEGA Genesis/MegaDrive went toe to toe with the Super Nintendo during the 16bit wars. During the start of the decade, SEGA has decided to discontinue making consoles altogether and focused on game development(which gave us the cult classic Total War series). To my surprise, the Megadrive is still alive and kicking, but only in Brazil.
Tech Toy is a Brazilian company that still churns out new revisions of the classic console. The new reiteration is looks just like Guitar Hero and is named aptly as Mega Drive 4 Guitar Idol. The package has one guitar, a pair of six button controllers and has 87 SEGA classic games built in.
The gameplay of Guitar Idol is similar to the original(if you dare port Guitar Hero to 16bit) and features music from Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, Red Hot Chili Peppers and others. Only if I was in Brazil,think of the possibilities! Hmmmm....
