A New Mini Sega Genesis At A Mini Price

Sega Re-Re-Genesis

There have been a few recent reboots of the old Sega Genesis in the past few years, some downright awful and some well executed, if a bit expensive.  Ars Technica looks at the newest reboot, the Sega Genesis Mini, which offers 42 games, two controllers and the system itself for $80, a price which may prove very tempting for nostalgia seekers. 

Ars Technica tested it out and had mixed feelings overall, mostly due to the lack of a six-button controller in the package which is more or less required to enjoy some of these games.  On the positive side, the emulation is well done, the save slots for games are greatly appreciated and most important of all … they had fun.

Eighty dollars gets you a diverse selection of 42 built-in games from the '90s, with a mix of obvious hits, cult classics, and weird outliers. That's all rounded out by two nicely molded controllers and an HDMI-connected system that delivers wholly competent emulation on both the sound and visual fronts.
