That might be slightly misleading. . .But read on! But there’s a new Sega MegaDrive on a Brazilian site. TecToy holds the Brazilian Sega license and are putting forth on their website a new Sega MegaDrive. The MegaDrive is the 16 bit console we called the Sega Genesis, the fourth gen console for Sega. It will come with a three button Sega-style controller, a cartridge port, sd card reader, and will come built in with some of the most famous/popular Sega MegaDrive games to be released! Shinobi 3, Sonic 3, Alex Kidd, Golden Axe, Decap Attack and many more. But it seems like you’ll be able to load your own ROMs to it which is pretty phenomenal. Not that I support that sort of scene. Ahem. But this is an interesting choice though. Retro is so damn popular now. Would you rather have a fake MegaDrive that lets you play all the games, but looks real, or have the real console, then go out and hunt all the carts down? I can see the argument for both, quite honestly.
Not everyone has the room to be like AVGN and have every Nintendo cart released. This is different from the Retro5N, that plays NES, SNES, etc games. This will likely only support MegaDrive/Master System games, which I think is cool. This is different because it physically resembles the Mega Drive, and I think it has the same physical dimensions. Nintendo’s new “NES” is smaller, and does not let you add more games to it. That’s another major way it’s different. Nintendo wants us buying their games still, but buying them from them and not downloading them from the Internet. This isn’t going to regenerate Sega, but I wonder how on-board Sega of Japan is with this. . .But it doesn’t have HDMI support, which makes me sad. I found this news right over here, and you should check it out for more deatils. What do you guys think about Fake Consoles?
