Thread: Mega Drive Mini

  1. #21
    I'd never seen that Genesis USB hub before - looks really nicely done, which judging by the current eBay prices for it is what people are really willing to pay for. That's basically the appeal with the Nintendo mini variants, in terms of aesthetic quality they're just a step above anything ATgames have ever put out.

    I think its still one of the best looking consoles ever made. I really can't see a Mega Drive mini doing that well or why it its needed. Mega Drive emu is already good enough and unlike Nintendo, there's been loads of various MD collections on systems like the 360 and PS3 and soon to be a new collection for the One and PS4.

    So I would go that extra mile and make its a Mega CD system too if not the Multi-Mega, then at least the Mark 1 MD and Mega CD with those lovely red and green acess and power lights.

    The RG-M1 is indeed one of the best looking consoles ever, I coveted one for a long time, but absolutely no-one has any nostalgic memories of owning such a beast. The high sales of these Mini Classics is very much based on fond memories of times past, and the coolness factor of having a miniature version of a childhood favourite.

    And therefore the original Megadrive is the way to go... although if it did have the Mega CD permanently welded to it and a selection of CD games on there, that would be quite awesome.

    The RG-M1 is the Wondermega isn't it? Not the Multi-Mega?

    Whoops, yes it is. Point still stands though.

    Nice! If it's of similar quality than the Nintendo cash grabs, I'll give this a go! Not a Sega fanboy but you know, when growing older, you have to appreciate it all. Nintendo and Sega would not be what they are today without each other!

    Just read this, supposedly a quote from ATGames on Facebook (who’s page doesn’t seem to exist as far as I can find?)

    In a reply to a comment on Facebook, AtGames had this to say about the wariness some might feel to them producing the Mega Drive Mini:
    All the negativity is perfectly understandable. You’ll either see the improvement this year in the HD hardware or you won’t. Talking about it doesn’t do much at this point. There is a switch to a proven emulator and other features that have been requested for years making it into the 2018 HD models.


    https://techraptor.net/content/sega-...i-genesis-miniare taking notice of past issues and will be working in improvements for the mini. In particular, they will be moving to a different emulator. The other features mentioned will be detailed later in the year. AtGames said in another comment on Facebook to keep an eye out for news a little before E3, which happens in the middle of June.

    AT Games sound really c*nty there and I'm willing to bet this will just be another janky emulator system in along line of janky emulator systems from them. If you just look at the wording and what they said its evident they are a bunch of tosspots.

    I was reading a thread on Atariage where someone who seems to work for, or has some connection to ATGames reiterated the above and also mentioned the crappy ‘extra games’ will not be included this time but would be available to download, which would suggest the possibility that Sega is planning a download service for the mini? More likely it’ll be someting you can download from ATG, so we can probably assume a sd cart slot which they’ve done before. How much of this (if any) applies to the Jpn mega drive mini or to the ‘next gen’ ATgames rom box I don’t know.
