This Sega Genesis Classic console does what Nintendo doesn’t

Everyone and their mom is going gaga for the SNES Classic Mini. If plumbers don’t cut it for you, worry not! For you, there’s the Sega Genesis Classic.

Surely, you remember the console wars of the early ’90s. Things got ugly, and people tossed around made-up words like “blast processing.” Still, this iteration of the Sega Genesis is the best yet. It includes 85 built in titles—that’s 60 more games than the SNES Classic Mini has. Relive hits like Mortal Kombat, Altered Beast, and of course the timeless Sonic series.

Plus, it contains four controllers so your friends and family can join in, all with HD output. Not to mention, it’s more portable than a Game Gear. This Sega Genesis Classic console is available on Amazon for $79.99.
