Sega Genesis Mini Is on Sale for $35
The end of a year is great time to look back and reflect on the past. So it’s a wonderful coincidence that the Sega Genesis Mini — the most impressive retro miniature console yet — is on sale for $35 at GameStop (the discount appears at checkout). That’s the best deal we’ve ever seen, but it’s available today only.IGN’s Sega Genesis Mini review declared it the “best all-in-one retro console ever made.” The device comes loaded with a collection of 42 fantastic games (see the full list below), plus two wired controllers, a USB adapter, and an HDMI cable.

The user interface is easy to navigate, with options to sort the games alphabetically, or by release date, genre, or number of players. The games themselves are wonderfully curated, with nearly all of the classics accounted for, including Sonic, Sonic 2, Castlevania Bloodlines, Streets of Rage 2, Altered Beast, Gunstar Heroes, Earthworm Jim, and many more.

As a cool bonus, if you change the language on the system, the entire UI changes, including the games’ box art, to match the region. You’ll even get the region-specific version of the ROM in question, where applicable.

The only potential drawback is that the Genesis Mini comes with the system’s original 3-button controllers. Thankfully, Retro-Bit makes official 6-button controllers that work with the mini console. If you want to take advantage of the deal, do it fast. It’s GameStop’s deal of the day, so it won’t be available tomorrow.
