Analogue has been making great-quality recreation video game consoles for reliving our favorite old-school games via modern technology. So far, they’ve released the Analogue Nt and the more-compact Nt mini (for playing NES and Famicom games) and the Super Nt (for playing your old Super Nintendo games). While they come in at a premium price, there’s good reason for it; they rely on an field programmable gate array — or FPGA — technology rather than the common route of emulation found in most other retro clone systems. Now, Analogue is taking the next logical step and are announcing the the Mega Sg, which will be compatible with your Genesis, Mega Drive, and Master System cartridges. Plus, you’ll be able to connect your original Sega CD and Mega-CD add-on systems. SCORE! Continue reading “Analogue announces the ‘Mega Sg”, a.k.a., the PREMIUM Sega Genesis clone console…”
