Sega To Release Console With 80 Old Games On Heels Of Nintendo’s Mini-NES
Sega vs. Nintendo - which one would you choose?
Back in the 1980s when Nintendo NES and Sega Genesis (known as the Mega Drive outside the U.S.) were new, it seemed most households had one gaming system or the other—but not both.
Now, with holiday shopping on the horizon (I know, I can’t believe it either), both companies are releasing versions of their classic consoles at price points that could make it so you no longer have to choose between the two.
Nintendo made ’80s gamers happy recently with the announcement that it would be releasing a mini version of its classic NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) in November, replete with 30 classic Nintendo games (from Donkey Kong to Bubble Bobble). It will retail for $59.99.
And now, in betting terms, Sega is seeing Nintendo’s mini-console and raising it a LOT of games. Sega will be releasing the Sega Mega Drive Classic Game Console loaded with 80 classic Sega games.
Sega will also release a handheld console called the Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Retro Games Handheld. Both will retail for around $65 and will become available in October.
