“The Sega Genesis was my console of choice through my college years, so while I can’t say I “jumped at the chance” to buy AtGames’ Genesis Portable (since it’s been available for several years), I did finally pick one up once they dropped to $30. What follows is my completely uninformed impressions of the system, from a Sega fan that did absolutely no internet research before purchasing one. (Intentionally! Hey, it’s an experiment.) This is what a non-biased review looks like.

I’ve been eyeballing this thing, at the local Family Dollar…wondering if it’s worth the $40…and thinking, I know I’ve already got a lot of the games on that thing…
…The ability to download and play ROMs is tempting, however.

“A project started by fans has started to accelerate very quickly. Approaching a petition size of nearly 35,000 signatures, they are now in the midst of developing and bringing a new console to market that will target 4K gaming. They still appear to need Sega’s approval and branding, however the current situation looks promising for Sega fans.

NO Sega Is NOT Making A New Console! – Project Spartan Rant:
Wouldn’t it be neat?
Of the Sega systems I own…the Genesis is lovely…the Sega CD was interesting, but senseless, unsupported and uninspiring [most of the game library already existed on cartridge!]…the Saturn was nice, but unsupported and lacking in a game library…and the Dreamcast is just great!
While I did have a long head start with Sega [and Nintendo]…once Sony hit the scene, everything else became secondary…even if still well loved, wanted and valued.
I’d love to see a new Sega system…even though I’m not prepared to dump a lot of money into new consoles.
…But, as they say…Sega isn’t what we remember it to be…And that’s really sad. They are not their own business entity, anymore…They cannot make these kinds of decisions, on their own.
