This thing is a piece of trash. Save your money.

This thing was trending earlier on Facebook because of the 25th anniversary edition being released with some games added and others removed.  I read some of the people being like 80 > 30, this is going to be awesome, and I'm all, this "console" has been out for years in one iteration or another and is typically viewed as a disappointment.

The least they could do is update the charge part to use micro USB instead of mini USB...

Wouldn't the home console version be better? I've got big hands, this looks small and the button layout is off. The 6 button Genesis controller button layout went from left to right, not top to bottom. Factor in a bad sound chip/output, why even get this? Get the Retcon 5 instead, if you have the games still.

Paid $10 for mine. Meijer clearance. Paid $15 for the console version. I don't regret either, especially at what I paid. :) Console one has a cart slot too.

It was in demo mode. It shows the game for a little bit and then goes back to the title screen. The problem I see is the sound is way off. Sounds horrible.

I thought Genesis games always had bad music...

I bought one for $20 at Dollar General last year. I ended up giving it to my 4yo son almost primarily due to the horrible audio, but also because of the screen. As you know, screens have a viewing angle where the picture looks poor when viewed at extreme angles. Usually if you look at the screen from the top, the image looks white and washed out, and from the bottom it looks dark and sometimes inverted.

Except for this handheld. Instead of the angle being at the top and bottom, it's at the left and right. Which means 80% of the time, your left eye will be seeing a different image quality than your right eye. You'll drive yourself crazy holding the thing perfectly still trying to get that sweet spot where both eyes see a good image.

Did he do something bad? Was this some form of punishment?
