Sega Genesis Mini / Mega Drive Mini launches September 19

This is probably another unnecessary mini console, as there are already plenty of Genesis/Mega Drive clones available.

I'm not that excited for this other than the controllers. I just want those controllers! having official USB controllers that will probably work on Computers is great! finally play Sega roms the right way! Sega released their games too much in collection over the years and I played and beat all of them on each collection. Even Roboniks mean bean machine... argh!

It seems that they indeed are making things right since m2 was in charge of the project and that they made the stupid decision of releasing the usa/eu version with the original 3 button pads instead of 6 like the japanese version.

Extra cash obviously by selling apart the 6 button pads for the rest of the world just like how nintendo sold the extra pad for the nes classic mini.

Gets me worried that they don't mention storage capabilities for save states.

So... here's 10 games, pre-order.

Ergh... PASS!

Ecco and castlevania are the only two that aren't in the ps4 collection, wich has what? 50+?

Wish they just added more as DLC rather than this thing with 3 button controllers. Yeah... nope.

Only chance is if it has Sonic 3& Knuckles. World of illusion would be pretty nice as well. Doubt it on both.
