[Best Buy] Sega Genesis Mini Flashback - $74.99

$25 off, good price at $74.99.

Was comparing to the mini coming out in September and this one has twice the games plus wireless controllers.

NO! This is not a good one, the ATGAMES ones have horrible reputation for not even emulating old games properly, you'd be better off with a Pi at this price.

Don't get fooled by this!

The Mini is going to be made by a company that understands the task of emulation.

Even IGN gave this one a 5.0 for how badly it does emulation, they give EVERYTHING a 7 at the least.

That list of games includes shovelware that wasn't even on the original Genesis.

This is a low quality , third party knockoff . Sega is releasing a Sega classic in the near future that is approximately the same price and will be higher quality . Avoid this product .

I'll stick with the PSC, and emulate Genesis on there.

$55 too rich.

But thank you, OP.

ATGames is indeed terrible. This has no redemption story, unlike the PSC.

This was licensed by Sega, so it's not a "knock off", Sega just did some really really stupid things in their past, like allow ATGAMES to make their consoles for them.

Does the item in the bestbuy link have the same internals as the console in this video? It looks like the controllers are the same garbage radio type, except the console is in a different casing. Both are made by AtGames.
