Buckle Up, Buttercup – Sega Genesis Is Back
Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.
According to Gamespot, Sega will release the Sega Genesis Mini in September and they are taking pre-orders now. You can pre-order at Amazon right now and it's also available at Wal Mart -- even Bed Bath & Beyond. I guess this is what they mean by BEYOND. There are different packages that you can get so varying prices. The price range is from around $40 to $200. The company is confirming 10 of the 40 games they will release and they are:
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Ecco the Dolphin
- Space Harrier 2
- Shining Force
- Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine
- ToeJam & Earl
- Comix Zone
- Altered Beast
- Gunstar Heroes
The power that nostalgia holds over us is so real. This, like many of the other re-released gaming consoles will be a huge hit. People are going to spend their hard earned dough on this and you can take that prediction to the bank. They will buy it, bring it home, get hyped, plug, play and realize the graphics suck and go back to whatever modern game they were already playing.
P.S. - They had better release NBA Live and Madden, lemme tell you right now.
