[Best Buy] Sega Genesis Mini Console up for Pre-Order $99.99 @ Bestbuy

The Sega Genesis Mini is up for pre-order for $99.99 @ Bestbuy

Released September 19, 2019

40 games included (10 revealed so far)
-Castlevania Bloodlines
- Gunstar Heroes
- Toejam and Earl
- Shining Force

More info:

http://genesismini.sega.com/

Some pertinent info/thoughts:
- This is NOT made by Atgames (finally)
- This has 2 wired controllers and not IR. 3 button in US & 6 for Mega Drive (but 1 controller)
- Emulation is being done by the company M2. M2 is a good developer and has experience with doing emulation right. They released the Sonic Classics 3d collection for 3DS, many virtual console releases, Sega Ages collections etc.
- Hopefully this will be a mini console on par with the SNES/NES mini and will be done better than the PS classic.

Fingers crossed it comes with NHL 94, Earthworm Jim, and NBA Jam TE.

Phantasy Star games are a must, hopefully each of the shining forces too... I wonder if game gear games will make an appearance?

NHL and NBA Jam are gonna be no-goes Due to player likenesses and names.

I hate this business of opening pre-orders for a mini console without a complete list of games.

September 19 is just about 2 months away from Black Friday sales. I will wait for a price drop.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Will pre-order for Castlevania: Bloodlines. Hopefully Contra: Hard Corps is on there as well.

Altered Beast is in, now if Kid Chameleon is in, it'll be hard to resist.

It’s not cheep, but for people wanting a Sega genesis take a look at the mega sg. It’s hardware emulation using an FPGA - you can plug in real games into it. Often these systems become jail broken and can run roms as well.
