Hands-on: Firecore Classic Console

From the Wii's Virtual Console to Xbox Live Arcade, there are all kinds of ways to play classic Genesis games these days.

Though this standalone console comes pre-loaded with 20 games, it also accepts all your old carts and comes packed with two dead ringers for the Genesis pad.

As you'll see in the above video, we recently put the machine through its paces and came away reasonably impressed, especially considering the $44 price tag.
