no kidding at all hehe. I am looking forward to the console version of this coming to me soon Very Happy


I have to buy again since the person who had them up for sale says they are out of stock.. typical, overseas stock.. Sad

Oh, and we dont get the portable GENESIS/MEGADRIVE version here, only the SEGA GAME GEAR version which i think is SEGA MASTER SYSTEM ROMS, not GENESIS.. suck

It has only two buttons. so it must be.. im still looking for the handheld MEGADRIVE version. holding my breath though

Yeah that sucks, Forahobby. You did get the megadrive console version right?

I received my Sega Genesis console a few weeks ago I think. I just got around to hooking it up. While I was at it, I re-setup my stereo system with the consoles I like to use. I'll take some snap shots and load them to my gallery in a bit. So right now I have xbox 360, the original modded xbox, the genesis and the dreamcast all hooked up to the big TV and the stereo. I don't really want to hook up the rest of the consoles I have as I would never use them anyway.

So the genesis console is cool but I like the portable better due to it just being cooler and portal plus the fact that the portable has the SD slot to play 1000's of genesis games on it. The console does not have the SD slot but instead the normal cartridge slot to play original genesis games.

It is nice that the genesis console has wireless controllers but they sort of suck. You need to have direct line of site for them unlike xbox 360 controllers. So even if you hold the genesis controller slightly pointing up or to the right or left of the console they barely work. You have to get use to directly pointing at the genesis console. Anyway I am still glad I got it.

I cant find that portabe version in Europe.

PS: I just remeber that I still have my DS, I could add extra ram and make it a Mega Drive Emulator only... Idea


I wouldn't think the it matters that it is a Genesis version and not a megadrive version since it is portable. No need to work on PAL TV's... your probably thinking about the shipping costs, right?

Exactly, I dont care if they call MegaDrive Genesis, the problem is shipping and Customs (not to mention most wont even ship international) Sad

If you want one, I can get it for you and send it to you. They had free shipping to me so all you have to pay is the price of the portable and the shipping to you. I ship stuff all the time overseas so no big deal for me.

Dude, I ordered one but then quickly cancelled it because it was nothing like the one you got. The GENESIS (US) version is so much better.. In Australia, all we get the option for is the GAME GEAR handheld (not a megadrive/genesis), and the SEGA MEGADRIVE pack with only 60 games, none of which are the good ones like on the NTSC pack.. shitty.

The genesis handheld is the balls. 80 games, SD card, and it still can hook up to TV if you get the cable for it but for you not good for PAL I guess. Crying or Very sad

It will be my airplane buddy Very Happy

That's a thing of the past really, all TVs can run Pal and NTSC.
