Super Megadrive Nintendo System - Retron3

Super Megadrive Nintendo System - Retron3

Nintendo and Sega

Nintendo and Sega
Back in the old days you were either a Sega or a Nintendo kid. A video-game console was the single greatest investment a 12-year-old was ever going to make and your choice of system had serious playground implications. The lines between the Super Nintendo and the Sega Megadrive were clearly drawn and anyone who didn’t share your allegiance was obviously a stupid gaylord.

Twenty years later the lines have not only been washed away, they’ve been skull fucked into oblivion made redundant by South East Asia and a casual disregard for intellectual property. The RetroN3 is a Sega Megadrive, Super Nintendo and Nintendo Entertainment System all rolled into one. It’s a mutant Frankenstein console that would have been broken impressionable minds back in the 16-bit era.

Get beyond the (genuinely) ugly exterior and you have a pretty impressive piece of kit. There are three cartridge slots (for the different formats), two ports for each system’s original control pads and AV output. You also get two wireless controllers (in classic Sega design) if your original control pads are nasty and buttons stick.

Compatible with multi-region games and retailing for $70, the RetroN3 allows you to play all those old cartridges you have stashed away at your parents house / proudly on display under your TV. Question is: Sonic 2 or Super Mario World?

Respect -Mikolai-

I was a Sega kid back in the day and much as love Sonic 1 & 2 I gotta admit Super Mario World is the better game... That said, Sonic's Star Light Zone features the best videogame music ever.
