Sega Mega Drive Handheld: Nostalgia takes a price cut

Old-skool gamers rejoice: Blaze International is flogging a handheld version of the Sega Mega Drive console, complete with built-in games, for just £30

Love handheld gaming, but can't stand Nintendo? You're an idiot, but there's still hope for you. Blaze International is flogging a handheld version of the Sega Mega Drive console, complete with built-in games, for just £30.

We've yet to play with one, but it looks like it could be fun. It includes 20 pre-installed games, including Sonic & Knuckles, Golden Axe, Shinobi, Ecco the Dolphin and, er, Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, or 'Tetris for losers' as we like to call it.

The handheld has a colour LCD screen, built-in speakers, a TV out connection, and runs off three AAA batteries. There doesn't look like there's any way of adding more games -- shame, we love a bit of Road Rash -- but then it does cost the same as one new PSP game.

If you like old stuff, you can get involved by going to GameGadget.net. If not, get with the damn programme and buy a Nintendo DS. -Rory Reid
