a new SEGA Megadrive !

One of these is shipping to me right now. But the 2.4g wireless controllers are on backorder with Amazon, so it may be a few weeks before I can even play it!

 

Analogue Co have recreated both the SNES and Sega Megadrive on the FPGA level, bit for bit, which results in the games running and working perfectly. All previous clones of these old consoles use software emulation and have never been pleasant to use. Sonic is stuttery and laggy...

Get their NES reissue in aluminium and we're talking :P 

 

How many old carts do you have lying about? 

 

I've seen the Nintendo reissues running, they're stunning machines. I hope you enjoy yours.

I used to have about 400 carts for the SNES and Megadrive, many years ago. But I sold the entire collection off.... I admit I now will be using roms on an SD CARD. Thanks to Everdrive packs...

Be sure to use the 2.4G controllers for <4ms lag, Bluetooth spikes in lag apparently (Source RetroRGB.com)

Yeah I just saw that a few hours ago! A wild difference in lag.

 

A few weeks back I actually had the Bluetooth back ordered, then cancelled and ordered the 2.4G, but they went out of stock so am still waiting. Apparently there is issue an with the first batch of 2.4G controllers anyway, which need firmware updates. Hopefully the new batch will be fixed before shipping.

 

Maybe I should just go down to cash converters and get a real wired controller!

Still have a large box of carts and a couple of broken consoles, be keen for a review when you get it.

I think my nephew and nieces will enjoy this. Their only experience of gaming is on the ipad e.t.c

 

There is something missing using a touchpad vs a controller.
