[eBay.ca] Sega Genesis Mini Console for 93.99

Looks like the source's ebay store is selling the new mini for 93.99 instead of the usual 99.99. Not a bad price if you were planning on getting it anyway.

Thanks, but will wait for price drop to $19.97 or $29.97

Always wonder why this is multiple times more expensive than PS1 classic

Much better game selection, from multiple regions. Also they didn't use slower pal roms either. Much better product. M2 are the best developers with it comes to porting and emulation.

Well, the PS1 Classic has had multiple price drops since release. Originally it was like $130 IIRC.

But yeah, this guy will discount pretty quickly I'm sure, not being Nintendo and all. It was already down to $79.99 for a short time for pre-orders.

Even the total flop PS1 classic didn't go lower than 29.99$. The Genesis Mini is getting praised by every reviewers as the best mini console out there, I doubt it will go lower than 79.99$ anytime soon.

Mine got delivered today from Walmart. I don't even remember ordering it but I guess I was under typical RFD effect when i ordered - Buy now thing later LOL

On a serious note, it is still BNIB and if someone wants it in Mississauga (Erin Mills/Thomas St), I am willing to give it out at CP ($79.99 + tax).
If not, this is going back to Walmart this weekend.

Yeah a price drop so quickly like that is typically what happens when a company mails it in and puts out a retro console hoping to simply capitalize on the consumer hype of other retro consoles and not caring what they actually put out. The only reason the ps classic got marked down so quick was because the dump that had all the ET games from the 80s was already full.

I only got my shipping notice yesterday. Not coming till Monday I guess. Don't know why they wouldnt ship it for release date if you've preordered months in advance.

Wal-mart was doing pre-orders for $80. Looks like they jacked the price back up to $100 now.

Ugh. Got my Amazon.ca $80 preorder. Bubble mailer. Three busted-in corners on the box. Definitely not the way you want to buy this thing if you are a collector!

While I'm sure it won't be as hot as the original Nintendo Classic... I'm sure this will keep it's price for sure. The only reason the PS Classic failed was because it was way over price and under deleievered in ever way possible. This machine is already getting high praise from youtubers. Maybe a slight sale for the holiday season, but I wouldn't bank on clearance pricing like the Playstation.

The PS1 Classic released at $129.99 Canadian. They did a terrible job on it doing things like using PAL version of games. The game selection wasn't so great either. I don't think you can compare the two.

I'm in Mississauga so that may be the reason why it got delivered in just a day (it shipped from Walmart fulfilment center in Mississauga).

I cancelled my preorder last night at EB games cause I needed a new headset. I hope I can snag one at some point for around the $50 mark
