New HD SEGA Genesis officially revealed

AtGames have officially unveiled their brand new HD SEGA Genesis console. Their newest iteration includes 720p HD output, scan line filtering, and a save/pause/rewind feature for every game.

The console will also come with two 2.4 ghz wireless controllers and boasts 85 built in games which include the Sonic the Hedgehog, Shining Force and Phantasy Star series. It will also include two ports for your legacy controllers, as well as a cartridge slot to play most of your Genesis/Mega Drive games. 

The CEO of AtGames promises this to be some of their best products yet.

“These upcoming products are our
best hardware lineup ever. Building
on our long history of delivering
value-packed, nostalgic products for
our customers, this new line-up
takes classic gaming to a stunning
new level.” – DR. PING-KANG HSIUNG, CEO,
ATGAMES

AtGames is also re-releasing their portable handheld and Genesis mini console, which promises better sound and inputs. 

This lineup of products is scheduled to be released Fall 2017, with pre-orders going live this Summer.

    About time AtGames stepped up their game.
    The older systems were just a step under par, though dreadful for anyone who loved the FM2612 sounds. (the sound was so dreadful, why I’d never buy one)
    Glad they finally saw the potential in improved accurate versions.
    I’d prefer an SD card slot on the console version but since it just copies over a rom I bet an adapter could be made if it doesn’t happen to have expandable memory already.
    Would be great to transfer roms from the games on Steam if it didn’t already have those games.
    Rewind could be better but I’m spoiled with Retroarch smooth rewind function.
    Multitap controller support would be nice but I bet they could set it up with wireless controllers or a combination with wired ones.
    Hopefully they can give it firmware updates.
    Sad it doesn’t have an optional composite port for CRTs.

    Despite very minor issues this looks to be a great grab.
    I’d also prefer Sega Master System, GameGear, 32x, SegaCD support but eh, least they got the wonderful sound down right this time. (most important thing of all, seriously)
    Already a ton better than Nintendo’s and best of all you can actually buy one.
    Knowing them they’ll have enough to meet demand and keep the product on the market for a good long while if not release new versions.
    Tempted to get one and a handheld version just to show support.

    That and hope cartridge versions of FM2612 chiptunes and homebrew become more popular as more people will likely end up having these.

    Is the sound emulation fixed? Because it was terrible in previous AtGames Genesis consoles.

    Also, dude, bluetooth pads already!

    Not interested on this product. Perhaps as a skin for a Raspberry Pi with Retro Pie.

      Thinking of doing that too but, perhaps there is enough room for both systems or a way to use whats already in there on an RPi.
      Hopefully the price shouldn’t be too high for modders.

    Released in Europe?

  • This is going to be amazing!

    This one had better be good. They’ve got a lot to make up for after the last few steaming turds they dropped on Genesis fans.
