Sonic and Sega are back, portable and familiar

Christina Crouch - Jan 2, 2008

Yet another blast from the past is making its way into the new generation wrapped in a shiny new package (which looks like this one but cheaper). Nothing gets a kids attention quite like a portable game system. I doubt the AtGames Mega Drive Portable will be much of a contender to the DS and PSP but it’s sure to make some old schoolers happy.

This hand held Sega is packed with twenty fun titles from the good old days including: Sonic and Knuckles, Ristar, Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle, Golden Axe, Ecco the Dolphin and Altered Beast. It has a color LCD screen and can plug into your TV for bigger gaming/viewing. They aren’t quite the same games from back in the day but the gameplay will still be the same.

It’ll cost you about $40 to purchase one. Can you just imagine the looks you’ll get from the all the “youngsters” out there as you play this on your commute to work? [via technabob]
