What is the Sega Zone you may ask? Well it turns out Sega has made a new mini system called the Sega Zone. It is similar to the Wii in a sense and comes with 50 games (30 are exclusive to the system. 16 of these 30 support a motion control with the Segamotes.) It also includes in the 50, 20 classic Genesis games, which for example include, Sonic & Knuckles and Alex Kidd. It also has the nifty feature of being compatible with Genesis/Megadrive cartriges. Think of the system as a Genesis Plus. Sadly this does not mean Sega is back in the consol war but it is a great piece for folks who like nostalgic games. Currently it is schedualed for release in the Uk this Summer to be sold for 39.95 .

WHAT?!?!?! If this isn't fake, then this is actually one of the coolest things I've seen, besides the fact that it's soooooo similar to the Wii xD

Well, I can definitely see the resemblance to the Wii. Looks cool, though! I'll be checking this out later on :D

It it just me, or does it seem odd that SEGA isn't using the ABC button layout from the Genesis control scheme?

^ If I wasn't lied to, I'm pretty sure Sega isn't directly making it. They gave someone else the rights and they're making it.

WHAT?! Oh snaps, this looks awesome!! I knew all my old Genesis cartridges I still have laying around will finally get to shine again! I'm so totally getting this!

Now let's hope it hits North America.

But still, why would anyone think to make a console that can play old Genesis/Master System games and not use the traditional layout?

Any word of a North American release?

Why the Genesis of all things? Do SEGA have any IDEA how much respect they would get from their fans if they did this with the Dreamcast or even better, the Saturn?

Although, gotta take what you get (Heres hoping for Gunstar Heroes in that console to add to my Gunstar collection)

Also, wasnt Sega Zone a town in Segagaga?

Sadly not yet. If I hear word i'll post it, but this consol was announced two days ago so don't expect a releases date any time soon for NA.

It's just a stupid bootleg/quick cash in all in one game thing. Ignore it completly.

No, it's official, nostalgic merchandise.

Hopefully it'll be better than their previous console like this:
Link (http://www.game.co.uk/Toys-and-Gadgets-Plug-and-Play-Games/Sega-Mega-Drive-Console-15-Games-in-One/~r341250/)
Apparently a lot of people had problems with the connectors used to play the cartridge games and the PAL/NTSC switch did nothing at all XD
Plus, this one has more games at near enough the same price ^^
