    Sunglasses Sega Gear: TecToy MD Play

    2009 has been a great year for Genesis hardware. No fewer than three different machines were released during the past twelve months, and most of them are portable. We've already covered the Genesis Portable system, but did you know an SD card-compatible version with six buttons was released in Brazil? Well, there was, and it's called the MD Play. Released by none other than TecToy, it has some interesting features the American and European versions lack. Read the latest installment of Sega Gear to get the scoop!

    They're selling them as "Gopher" over here in Europe.

    The Mega Drive was far inferior to the NES in terms of diffusion rate and sales in the Japanese market, though there were ardent Sega users. But in the US and Europe, we knew Sega could challenge Nintendo. We aimed at dominating those markets, hiring experienced staff for our overseas department in Japan, and revitalising Sega of America and the ailing Virgin group in Europe.

    Then we set about developing killer games.

    Great article. The system does look nice.

    I guess it is a "step in the right direction" for new Genesis systems, but it's disappointing that each of these new systems has new problems, such as with the color and sound distortions mentioned in the article. If only someone would just make it right for once!!!

    Hey, at least we know it has SD card support and you can use your ROMs on them, your legal ROMs that is.

    Mos def! It'll go by the name of "MegaDrive Deluxe SD" and will be sold in the Weltbild online store.

    If it takes a 2gb SD card, I'd imagine you could store the entire Genesis library.

    Those handheld Sega's are becoming pretty good, now if only they'd fix those emulation bugs.
    (and add saving)

    Would be sweet if we could just use 1 SD card for both the NEO flashcard and a handheld.

    So eh.. if any of the people responsible for this thing are reading this, fix those things i mentioned and I'll buy 2.
    (but make sure it can also run SMS games)
