If you're in Europe, you're going to have to wait just a little while longer for the Sega Mega Drive Mini. Sega has delayed the release of their classic mini console by two weeks, citing "unavoidable logistical challenges". Now, the system will launch on October 4th, while North America will receive the Genesis Mini on September 19th. Also included in the delay are any Middle Eastern territories. When the Mega Drive Mini does release, it'll come with 42 different games, such as Sonic 1 and 2, Shining Force, Road Rash 2, Castle of Illusion, a never before released port of Darius, Comix Zone, and more, along with two controllers.

Logistical challenges in business terms means some kind of shipping issue, e.g. they haven't been able to produce enough to supply the European market or they're physically held up somewhere along the line or something like that. It's unlikely they're making any changes, they probably just can't get them into stores on the previously announced date.

"unavoidable logistical challenges" ?! it's a fucking emulator in a plastic shell!
I think it's rather zealous EU customs officers who keep on fighting against Asian imports... If you miss to submit the shipment costs the friendly officers will find one 10x more expensive from the catalogue and calculate 19% tax on top of that... Recently I ordered from Satisfye and they "failed to provide sufficient details about the shipment" so I had to go to the customs office, open the package in front of them so they could conclude that no customs apply though still had to pay the 19% sales tax, shipping included... I ordered from China and Singapore to Germany and Poland multiple times - it's a real lottery with the lovely people.

Let’s not hope that it is the same as the Sega Genesis “Classic Game Console” made by AtGames

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    It's old but it's the best firmware out for DS stuff
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    it says it only works for the original R4, R4i Gold (r4ids.cn), R4iDSN (r4idsn.com) and Acekard R.P.G.
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:

    Just give it a try, but honestly if you have a 3DS you can play DS games without a card just off the internal SD card
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Slightly slower loading but a bit more convenient
