A company called Blaze has release a Sega Megadrive/Genesis handheld console! It’s only £29.99 (so like the price of one game) and it has an LCD screen and contains 20 classic Sega games including Sonic and Knuckles, Golden Axe, Shinobi and Ecco the Dolphin amongst others. You can even plug it into your TV! Plus there’s a special two player version with two controllers. Sounds pretty rad. My kids will love this (if they don’t find the graphics too old-skool).

  1. Looks a bit like a Lynx to me. The screen is tiny but then I guess that’s what you get for £30 🙂 I like the idea and I guess it’s cheap enough that most Mega Drive lovers would be able to pick it up without really thinking. If you do get one you’ll have to write a review so we can all see how good it is 🙂
