Sega Genesis/MegaDrive console revisited

If like me you are interested in retrogaming, a ‘new’ version of Sega’s classic Megadrive console, complete with 15 games built in has been recently released by a company called Blaze. According to Blaze, the console can also play all old MegaDrive cartridges from all regions.

Built-in games include Alex Kid, Alien Storm, Altered Beast, Arrow Flash, Bonanza Bros., Columns, Crack Down, Decap Attack, E Swat, Fatal Labyrinth, Flicky, Gain Ground, Golden Axe, Shadow Dancer and Sonic And Knuckles. Blaze made the news last year by releasing a handheld console that, again, played old MegaDrive games.

Costing less than £40 I should be soon be purchasing one of those and putting it to the test, on paper I have to say it is a fantastic idea and it would be great to see other classic 16-bit/32-bit consoles of the era following (Super NES would be my pick!).
