Analogue Mega Sg
On paper, the Mega SG is almost a copy-and-paste of Analogue's last console, doing for the Genesis what the Super NT did for the SNES. But while Nintendo fans have dozens of options to play the company's classics, Sega diehards don't. The Mega SG brings the stuff we expect from Analogue -- near-perfect emulation, HDMI and wireless controller support -- to a slept-on library of games. Even if you never owned a Genesis, the Mega SG is worth a look.
- Near-perfect emulation
- Plays Genesis and Master System games from all regions
