Analogue Is Introducing The MEGA SG, FPGA Sega Console

Analogue, the company behind the Analogue NT and Super NT, premium Nintendo console maker running on FPGA hardware has released news that theyre now going the Sega route and I personally couldnt be happier! Finally Sega lovers rejoice. Here’s what I know so far, The Mega SG by Analogue will play US Sega Genesis Games, European and Japanese Mega Drive games. Video output will be via HDMI in 720p or 1080p not exactly sure yet but one of those. There will be cartridge adapters so you can play other legacy consoles such as SG-1000, SC-3000, Mark III and Game Gear and those are speculated to retail for $10 a piece (F you Polymega) but its rumored that Master System Adapter will come packed in. The Mega SG will retail for $189 and will come in 4 colorways, classic Genesis (Red, Grey, Black), classic MD (black, blue, red), model 2 (grey and black) and all new white! They look really good! Sega CD compatibility is a go, 32x looks like it might be out of the question at the moment due to the daisy chaining of video output, I wouldnt count it out completely but as of right now its a no go but Analogue is working on it.

How awesome is this news!? Im very excited for it oh and its coming this april, heres some footage!

Hyperkin’s Mega RetroN HD!?


As you may or may not know CES went down recently and Hyperkin got a ton of press on their Ultra Gameboy which we covered. Something that went under the radar was this little guy, Mega RetroN HD confirmed by Hyperkin on Facebook with a unknown release date.

They also confirmed that the Mega RetroN HD will not be emulation but pure hardware baby! So that means the sound should be close to, if not spot on. I assume that also means better compatibility.
