Nintendo has made a really good lot of money from its NES Classic and SNES Classic mini retro consoles that show that video game fans are very eager to throw money on things that remind them of days before they became old. Sony even thought shortly to be able to cash in on the founda tally with its own PlayStation Classic, at least until a weak public response made it clear that a miniature PS1 that cannot play Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is not worth anywhere near $ 90 ( Metal Gear Solid is great but come on). Tony Hawk aside, perhaps PlayStation Classic failed because it was not appropriate retro enough, and if so, there is another company that could hit the exact nostalgia sweet spot: Sega.
The people behind Sonic The Hedgehog do not produce their own full-size consoles anymore, but as reported by Kotaku -Sega will release a Genesis Mini later this year for $ 80. It will have 40 games preloaded on the system, and while not all have been announced yet, it includes some good choices ( Castlevania: Bloodlines Gunstar Heroes ] Ecco The Dolphin ) and the necessary stink to be included on each Sega Genesis compilation until the end of time ( Altered Beast ). Of course, Sega has sold something like this for years, but the mini retro system – Genesis Flashback HD, as seen at Walgreens! – was built by another company and lacked the technical precision and overall quality of Nintendo's two machines. This, in theory, will be different.
