Already tons of threads on this POS. I believe it was as low as $25 at Bed, Bath & Beyond last time.

Haha. I've been playing mine over the last couple of weeks actually, funny enough. 2K Tennis is so dope!

Ok, but how can this Genesis reboot be that terrible? I mean, it plays the games, not? It says NTSC. You guys are all unanimous on the hate lol

Saying this console can't be that bad because it plays the games is like saying a Fisher Price keyboard is akin to a genuine piano because it "plays the notes, does it not?".

Sorry but this is not unfounded hate or bias. This console really is as awful as everyone is implying.

The horrible audio reproduction should be enough to deter you from this console.

Garbage. Useless.

SEGA will come out with a better classic console.

This is not the actual Sega mini. It does not have HDMI.

If some of you guys think the PS Classic is a bad value...

Anything from (SH)ATGames should be avoided like the plague.

Loved Dreamcast too, but playing it again over the last several weeks recently, I realize how LONG the loading time is. But a quality DC mini/classic would be killer!

That's too bad. The concept that this had flash games on it, but could still play the old physical cartridges sounded very enticing, but if it basically doesn't work, it's kind of pointless. I've still got all my retro gear... :P

HDMI, wireless controller (that work well) and ability to hack and sideload other Genesis roms.

For the purists, this is the device to get, once available...

I actually bought the hd version of this console a while ago for 60$. That was before sega announced their official mini console or i would have waited. The main problem are the Sonic games as they are very choppy compared to the original Genesis. They are playable though. I still enjoyed the slower games like the rpgs and ristar. No streets of rage or Gunstar heroes was a big missed oppurtunity. To me it was worth it a the time but not anymore since the official console is coming. Unless you can find it for very cheap...
