Nintendo had hit the nerve of the time with the reissue of its classic consoles, with little financial commitment could make a short-term cash Cow on the legs. Sega is there now, the Mega Drive Mini was officially presented. Again, this is a simple computer board in a small plastic case, which mimics one of the popular consoles of several decades ago. For us, this just means a retro feeling on the HDMI TV.
Sega had released the original 30 years ago in October, so 2018 is a good time to present the mini model. Of course, the games will also be pre-installed here, including famous classics like “Sonic the Hedehog”. In the summer, the console will appear with 15 games, to a market launch in Europe meanwhile, nothing is known.
In my opinion, these retro consoles are definitely a cool idea, even if prices are in principle overdrawn. But visually the things are just cool, a classic emulator does not offer that. [ Verge . Caschy ]
