    Default Mega Drive FPGA by Analogue and 8bitdo

    https://twitter.com/analogue/status/...705509376?s=19

    We saw earlier that new 8bitdo Mega Drive controller. Now we know what's it for

    Smart and lucky move from Analogue. This will sell really well while the official Sega Mega Drive mini comes.

    This is huge! Is there a price yet? The preorder link seems to be down

    $189. Doesn't include controllers.

    Thanks. It's a lot of money for me, but I think I will order one when the site is back...

    I guess it won't support 32x out of the box but it will be hacked in eventually

    Ugh... I didn't remember the Super Nt was 189. A bit too expensive I think.

    I think both the analogue NT and super NT were both at "premium" prices. Can't check right now.

    32x is likely too much for the FPGA, even if someone did all the work of laying it out.

    ...not even one controller? Seriously?

    I mean, I get that it'll work with existing ones, but they should be going by the assumption that whoever buys it may be starting from zero (and hence not have a controller already). It's impossible to use this thing without one @_@

    Their site is down: https://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/www.analogue.co.

    Is it unexpected demand, a poor website, or a fashionable outage to drive hype?

    Just kidding.

    Anyway, I'm not very familiar with these new FPGA / 'mini' consoles. What are the pros/cons vs the traditional stack of vintage console + Framemeister (or equivalent) + HD display?

    One of the cons of the Super NT is that it can't match the framerate of SNES/SFC hardware, so it runs a little slow. It also can't be used on a crt.

    Ithink it's supposed to be an easy accurate way of playing original games on modern TVs, with lots of configurations to customize the display (pixel perfect, crt aspect ratio and scanlines, etc)

    That GH video seems to running a tad slow? Also noticed the flicker effect isn't present on the weapon selections or level select monitors...

    Right click → statistics, it's possible Youtube loaded a 30Hz version of the video.

    Yeap...30hz video. That would explain the lack of the flicker effect or the sluggishness....both?

    Watching it in 60hz the flicker on the monitors on the level select is present but it still seems to be running a tad sluggish overall to me.
