What's the difference between this new announced and this one..?

 

We have these at our local walmarts/other stores and can play real genesis cartridges and there's a portable version oo.  Can some one explain?

I was wondering the same thing

I bought this one instead for portable Genesis classics:

Wasn't that much more expensive (99 € for the handheld + 4 € for the SEGA Mega Drive Collection) and it can also play PS1 games (and PSP games and Vita games).

Good call.

 

Also, was this the Huge Announcement! Sega was talking about?

Wow, this is amazing! I want to know the games list!

Here's the list of games that I expect:

  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  • Sonic the Hedgehog 3
  • Columns
  • Altered Beast
  • Gunstar Heroes
  • Comix Zone
  • Castlevania: Bloodlines
  • R-Type 3
  • Streets of Rage 2
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Phantasy Star IV
  • Shining Force
  • Shinobi 3
  • Out Run
  • Super Hang-On
  • World Championship Soccer
  • Zero Wing
  • Ranger X
  • Splatterhouse
  • Ys III
  • Alex Kidd
  • Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse
  • ToeJam & Earl
  • Golden Axe
  • Strider
  • Landstalker
  • Contra: Hard Corpse

I think Shining Force II would be a much better and much more appreciated choice than the first.

And where's Ristar!!!



Sega was just talking about importing and selling the ATGames Mega Drive Flashback in Japan a few days ago http://www.segadriven.com/2018/04/sega-coo-announces-plans-to-re-introduce-mega-drive-by-importing-the-atgames-genesis-into-japan/ what's going on? Is that just a smaller model or are they going to sell both with the ATGames one being able to use carts?



As long as they can accurately reproduced the sound and fx I will buy



I'll just get the Sega Genesis Collection for the PS4 instead when that comes out, as that is a bit more convenient since I already have a Genesis anyway.
