Megadrive is now on sale with 15 games free

The Megadrive is back - brand new and at a third of the original price!

http://www.play.com/Gadgets/Gadgets/...s/Product.html

Plays all the original games too!

It's maybe better than this Tectoy crap, but i still prefer the Sega Mega Drive I original console. This Blaze MD lacks RGB out, so it's a "No go!".

Kind-of a nice idea, but it's bulky compared to the C64 joystick.The ability to play cartridges is a nice touch though.

This might be relevant

Pure ugliness. I highly doubt that it's compatible with all the old MD catridges. Would be a nice gimmick for 10-15, but not for 37.99.

I heard better things about this multi-console clone, if we are talking about compatibility:

You won't catch me buying one of these. I've got my emulation box for that kind of thing. Plus I'd much rather have a nice quiality built Wii remake as it too has games built in:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/ITEK-WIRELES.../dp/B001K0TOXS

it's bound to be better than an old 16bit Megadrive? Isn't it? It has quality game titles like FISH WARS! Class!

Seems like there is a market for those 'replicas'. I've heard about a NES/SNES one (quite similar to the one Retro posted) once, but wouldn't have thought that there are actually quite a few of those around. I would really like to know how this 'Wii' is like

15 games is hardly anything, why not 50, or 100? I would prefer to see a new portable MD.

No confusion. Avanze asked for a new MD portable, and there is this Blaze handheld.
