LinuxLinks on Mega Drive Emulators

July 9th, 2010 by Crusader

LinuxLinks has posted an overview of the various Sega Mega Drive/Genesis emulators available:

The Sega Mega Drive (Sega Genesis) was a leading 16-bit video game console system. The console was developed by Sega Corporation in 1988. By current console standards, the Mega Drive’s specification seem positively pedestrian. However, at its launch the console’s specifications surpassed competitors in many respects. Demand for the Mega Drive took off with the release of the classic game, Sonic the Hedgehog.

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 6 high quality Mega Drive emulators. Hopefully, there will be something of interest here for anyone who wants to relive their mis-spent youth.

    Interesting article, though not entirely useful to me as I just got a Genesis console at the local Thrift store for about 1 Dollar CDN. With the addition of the purchase of Sonic, Sonic 2, and some random golf game I am sure was soon forgotten the cost total added up to be about 5$ dollars. And this is not someone’s old and beat up machine, this is still in prime condition. Only console I have ever owned, as I am a die hard PC gamer, but I can not help but think that 5$ (plus games) is appropriate for any video game console released today. ;)
