This is how the Sega Genesis Mini looks stacked up to all other big minis


We got an early Sega Genesis Mini and are ready to show off its full content.

Of course, the first thing I did before I played it is see how it compares to all other minis so far. I have a small minimum museum!

There's not much more to say about the device itself: it's a cute & # 39; lil micro-version of a beloved console. The Genesis Mini's size is about half (55%) of the actual Genesis: which puts it at 9.8 x 3.9 x 1

1.8 inches and 1.93 pounds. Like all minis, the unit is comfortable to hold and move around.

With the Genesis Mini package, you get two controllers: Nack the first cardinal's sin on the NES Mini to only pack in a remote that thankfully has not been replicated since. Even better, it also avoids the PlayStation Mini annoyance of missing a USB power adapter by packing one (good job, Sega). All in all, the contents are: an HDMI cable, a USB AC adapter, a power cable and two remote controls. In other words, it's completely out of the box. The control cables are a respectable six feet, one full foot longer than Sony's PlayStation Mini remote controls.

UI (which has a new snazzy tune by Yuzo Koshiro) like most mini-devices is simple but effective. You can sort by release date, A-Z, genre or player (default): with the option of scrolling through a "game shelf" box. There are concessions for 4: 3 and 16: 9 wide aspect ratios, as well as token CRT filters. Turn off points and soft resets (directly from the controller) are in, and M2 handles gate details for all 42 games, which is good news. So far, so good!

Look for more information on how this $ 80 machine plays near its launch in September.
