If you read my blog regularly, you’ll know I am a massive geek. When Menkind got in touch and offered me a Sega Mega Drive Classic to give away to one of my readers, I was very excited (and a little jealous)!
About The Sega Mega Drive Classic
The original Sega Mega Drive was released in 1989. I was 6 at the time, and remember watching the advert in awe! The Sega Mega Drive Classic is a rebooted, mini version of that epic console.
Firstly, there are 81 original 16 bit Sega Mega Drive games packed into the tiny classic console. Secondly, it has an RRP of £69.99. Thirdly, it comes with two wired controllers – no batteries required. Finally, the console connects to the TV via RCA connectors. (Remember the Red, White and Yellow cables from days of old)? Alternatively, you can purchase a SCART connection separately, but this device does not support HDMI connectivity.
Unlike the Nintendo classic consoles, the Mega Drive Classic is compatible with original mega drive cartridges. HOW AMAZING IS THAT! Admittedly, I was team Nintendo, so I don’t have any old cartridges. However, if you’ve got a copy of Landstalker collecting dust in your attic, you NEED this console in your life!
Which Sega Mega Drive Games are pre-installed?
The Mega Drive Classic comes with 81 games installed. I’ll be here all day if I list them all, so instead I am listing my top picks. You can view the full list here (Under Technical Specifications).
