SEGA Genesis does what Nintendon't

The SEGA-Nintendo rivalry is back. NES is making a comeback this November and now, AtGames has announced a re-issue of the SEGA Mega Drive Mini Console and a portable SEGA Mega Drive to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.

The "new" home console will come with 80 built-in games, 2 wireless controllers, and compatibility with ALL classic Sega Mega Drive/Genesis cartridges. The "new" portable will feature a 3.2 LCD screen and an SD Card slot that supports .BIN and .SMD files which means you can play SEGA Mega Drive ROMs.

Both systems will cost £49.99 (about US$65) in the UK. Unlike the Classic NES mini, the home Mega Drive console will pack 2 wireless controllers so no need to buy an additional controller for 2 player games.

If you are looking for some SEGA nostalgia, the SEGA Mega Drive Classic Game Console from AtGames offers significantly more for its price of £49.99, which is the same as the price for Nintendo's Mini NES. And if you prefer going mobile and playing more games via ROMs, then get the portable SEGA Mega Drive.

Word of advice though, these re-issued consoles are made by AtGames and not by SEGA. Games on these systems are emulated and sometimes don't play well.
