Microconsoles are seemingly all over the place lately with Commodore 64 and PlayStation outputting their own iterations this past Holiday and Atari planning a beefed-up spin on the company’s classic hardware for later this year. Though it may seem 16-bit inclined systems are dominating the mini market these days, future generations of gaming have been speculated to get their due sometime in the future, with Sega Dreamcast as well as Nintendo GameCube microconsoles possibly hinted over recent months.
The Sega Genesis Mini hits stores on September 19th.
