Sega Mega Drive: Sonic 25th Anniversary Edition - 80 games plus slot for old games £49.99 @ Funstock

Meet the Sega Mega Drive: Sonic 25th Anniversary Edition. This mini version of the original console comes with 80 original games built in, and is more feature-laden than Nintendo's equivalent, the Nintendo Classic Mini.

In addition to the built-in library, the new Mega Drive sports an original cartridge slot, allowing players to dust off their existing games and use them with the console. There's also the option to expand the console's internal memory, the size of which isn't specified, using an SD card slot. Games can then be downloaded from the internet.

Nintendo's re-released NES can't perform either of these functions and is offline-only.

In addition to the above, players will have access to USB charging, two wireless controllers and 'plug and play' functionality with modern televisions. The word HDMI is never explicitly stated, but it seems the only sensible option for a video output.

The kit costs £49.99 and can either be purchased as a handheld device or a traditional console. Obviously the handheld version doesn't include an extra controller and doesn't output to a television.

The Sega Mega Drive: Sonic 25th Anniversary Edition is available to pre-order. The full list of games included (below) includes some all-time classics such as Altered Beast, Sonic The Hedgehog 1 & 2, Mortal Kombat 1-3. For a completely updated kit with new features, it's the perfect present for the '90s gamer seeking hedgehog-based nostalgia.

No streets of rage
Sorry but seems like a cash in on Sonic's 25th as these have definitely been available cheaper before, unless these new 25th versions add something new but I doubt it as they look identical to the old editions, in fact I'd wager they are the old ones with a sticker on the box saying Sonic's 25th or some such.

Can't beat the original Sega hardware anyway IMHO....

​Just download the rom....
A much better retro offering from sega and the Tendo guys... your own roms, carts mean this is a much better bit of kit...

not sure about some of those games though... haha.

poor game selection otherwise this would be hot
Not to bad emulation but poor sound done by third party where as the mini nes is being handled by nintendo themselves so speaks for itself when it comes to quality.
improvement on the nintendo version seeing as you'll be able to put your own games on this one (and roms) unlike the nintendo one
The Sound is trash on these units.
Has anybody received one yet, I'm sure only the handheld one has an SD card...I could be wrong but would buy one of it did so please confirm.

Your better off getting a megadrive and a everdrive.
AtGames produce horribly emulated products, always a disappointment.

Seconded. It's amazing how much better the games sound on the original hardware, especially the early (high definition graphics, 1989/90) original Megadrive 1 systems, when you play them on the right hardware you can understand why the games and the music have such a cult following...
80 games!!
...What happened with the quality drop-off halfway down that list?
These are truly terrible, as mentioned, the sound chip is awful, try plugging in Micro Machines 2 or Mega Bomberman for maximum awfulness, audio out is mono and finally the controllers may look like the original 6 button versions but they are about 3/4 of the size and the buttons are raised a lot higher and will blister your thumb if you are a heavy button transitioner. If you really want this, best you can do is buy some official pads and also perform a sound chip fix mod (can be found on google, you'll need a soldering iron), but after all that you might as well just buy an original or dust off the one in the garage and a Everdrive, will cost a little more, but hell, you're worth it
Where is jungle/urban strike?!

These are unofficial/homebrew games, just filler to bump the game count and make this piece of crap look more appealing
Dominant Amber?, must be a Johnny Depp homebrew title! (_;)

I probably am but I'm not that bothered about sound quality, I will turn it down. The ever drive seems quite expensive for what it is by the time I have got that and a console it's going to be over £100.
Mega drive was great for RPG's

But then you could have hundreds of megadrive games? Literally everything ever released. Well worth it

I think I have all of them on a harddrive. And all the sms, snes, nes, gameboy. Mame, PC engine roms. Best thing is to just run an emulator for free...
No diff to the NES minis tbh and probably technically not much different to most modern day SBCs.

As already stated if you have the time and put the effort in you could easily do better with something like a raspberry pi for a similar price.

My current Retropie setup has around 40 systems, most with complete sets of roms and a slew of cheaply bought repro controllers, whilst having the ability to add to it at any time.

As time goes on emulation of the old systems will only get better so all these limited mini consoles are a complete waste of time.

Hell for running stuff like this you could probably get away with a £4 Raspberry Pi Zero.
To some, bothering to spend time setting up a Raspberry Pi and downloading roms is a waste of time.

It's all about personal preference. These have a clear market, namely those who want something ready straight away and for minor novelty value.
Just buy a Dreamcast & download games onto a blank cd
Meatloaf Rotation? MEATLOAF ROTATION?!?!

​EA wouldn't allow it.

Have sent you a PM
20 good games on this list and an awful lot of filler. At least the Nintendo one has no filler. Also the quality on these Mega Drive consoles is questionable i remember having a blaze one a few years ago it was crap.
Too many classic games missing. I know you can download them, but still. I prefer the quality of the Nintendo product. Just wish it was expandable.
AndrewRunagall

​EA wouldn't allow it.



The Strike series is long overdue a revival!
Although this is licensed by Sega, it's not a genuine Sega product, so don't expect the same quality as the original Megadrive.
No Revenge of Shinobi???

I wouldn't judge Nintendo yet, after some of VC games are poorly emulated on Wii U/3DS
I paid £5 for my Mega Drive MK1 with Mega CD add-on when you lot decided you wanted a PS1
Despite owning several retro consoles they're boxed up and never used, much more convenient via a Shield/PC

Defeats the purpose of the device.
is this owned by sega. There is a similar one out with less games which was a clone and the sound chip was awful.
Most can be played on emulators. I'll be happy of they release a new geo CD with decent speed cd drive.
