Sega Zone video game system coming this summer

by Mark R

new-sega-console-hitting-summer-0Well, when I heard that Sega was putting out a new video game console, I had to double check to see what decade I was in.

I’m not certain why that Dreamcast never took off, and why I see Sonic the Hedgehog playing tennis with Mario on the Nintendo. I mean, if Nintendo knew what was going to happen in the early nineties, then they never would have worried about them as competition.

Apparently, this Sega Zone is actually some sort of Wii emulator that allows the players to do classic video games like Golden Axe, Sonic and Knuckles, Ecco the Dolphin, and 30 other games.

The Sega Zone doesn’t come with the classic Genesis controllers with the A, B, and C keys, but two motion controllers. These motion controllers are good for 16 out of the 30 included classic Sega games.

The company plans to put even more classic Sega games in the future. As I mentioned before, this will be available this summer, and the price will be around £50.

Of course, I have heard that there is already some sort of emulator for the iPhone that will allow a user to play old Sega games like Sonic the Hedgehog. It is called the Ultimate Genesis Collection for the iPhone. This emulator is free, but the games are $3 each. Make your own decision on what is the best value for you.

Way too pricey. iv heard of people emulating sega genesis(mega drive) n64 super nes and mame roms all off one xbox. And they didn’t pay anything for them. I know this is illigal but this just shows that 50p or $3 a game for iPhone is so expensive. I’m currently running a n64 emulator off my iPhone and so long as u own the games, u can download the roms and it plays most games impresivley.

Looks like a last minute entry into the seventh generation war. We’ll probably get something better from sega once Nitendo, Sony, and Microsoft put out their new consoles

I am surely going to buy one, well, mostly because of nostalgia.
But even now, in the 8th generation of video games, the old mega drive games are still very exciting.
