Sega mega drive mini unboxing get a three button version but a company called retro bit is making officially-licensed six button pads so that is like approved by Sega you'll be able to buy them separately for like 18 pounds eighteen dollars I think and they'll come out at the same time as the console basically so if you really really want a six pad because I know street fighters on there you can get one you've just got to pay a bit more and the other thing I want to look at is controller length because did you ever use the nes or snes mini?
it is Mega drive mini day or Genesis mini day if you're in the US where this has just come out we're in Europe where this has not yet come out but we have a mega drive mini we're gonna unbox it we're gonna take a look at what you get okay so I am joined here by Fergus a rogue Australian from PC World Australia correct so he's just popped into our office for a bit and I don't know knows equally little about Sega consoles as me so we're gonna bumble through this together we've got a box we've got a box good start obviously this is the Mega Drive mini box if you're in North America it's the Genesis mini if you are anywhere else it's the Mega Drive so it was a Mega Drive for Australia I think I believe so yeah yeah if I I am I'll be up front a bit clueless I was a Nintendo kid I'm all like snes was my thing and then n64 yeah I was a handheld person I wasn't really allowed a console 'til way later down the track but I do remember have fond memories of Sonic I played it at other people's houses Sega mega drive mini unboxing and sucked arcade sonic as well.
you have arcade stuff yeah so right we got into the box that's the exciting box view not thrilling start I'll be honest okay the first thing we get is Sega mega drive mini unboxing cable. well yeah I'm glad there's one so yeah Https://pikespeakpoetlaureate.org/anime/a-rhapsody-called-lucy-the-very-first-song-english-sub-monster-strike-the-animation-official.php to micro-usb that's a giveaway that's how this thing charges one quirk I'll get out of the way before we go any further what we're not gonna find in this box is a power adapter I have Sega mega drive mini unboxing my own if you're in the US and you're buying the Genesis one you will get a USB power adapter if you're not in the u.s.
you don't get one I don't totally understand the logic I think Nintendo did the same thing with the snes and nes ones yeah I just I dunno, it's one of those things where you can probably is probably fine everyone Sega mega drive mini unboxing a power brick yeah from this phone it's just going to be anything with you A look at the virtual boy nintendos 3d disaster a five volt USB a port like you've got one but this it's weird I mean I'm Pro reducing the global waste you have USB power bricks but not including a thing you need is a ungoxing weird to not have it in the box when you need it to function yeah next thing we find instruction manual which I kind of like that looks like remember instruction manuals looking for instruction manuals don't know they had backstory yeah I know oh yeah video game - video game instructions were always the best you always actually got like plot in there look we've got like min little cheer I don't know if that mascot has a name cheery little genesis/mega Drive dude - Jenny?
Jenny the Genesis yeah yeah probably yeah this obviously covers all the European main European languages so the actual instructions bit is a single double page spread is there an Australian language option I don't know just like he's deive Sega mega drive mini unboxing shrimps and barbies every now and then disappointing this is not the diverse future I'm okay sometime soon we're gonna jnboxing an actual console hold on no more cable more cable alright this at least is another useful cable an HDMI cable so it's you could always use more HDMI cable yeah I mean to be fair that mii one that I do tend to lack HDMI cables yeah obviously that's how this thing drove gonna hook up to your TV good value add okay yeah let's go this way first all right hey alright another box a box within a box yeah nearly just fell out that's good start just drop it on the floor oh here we go okay and Sega mega drive mini unboxing we have it Sega mega drive mini unboxing like the little unboxihg engraving yeah that's quite rdive got a little bit of peel yeah so that is the dinky little mega drive link yeah does it feel as plasticky as it looks?
it feels incredibly plastic yeah but that's fine it's very small it's very light it's 55 percent smaller than the original thing which is you know it's kind of adorable yeah yeah yeah yeah it you know it feels very lightweight but you know you're just gonna put it down next your TV anyway right it's a volume slider on this thing yeah that's adorable ports that must be a headphone jack and maybe like pop in or something I think I remember it's a non-functioning like that this is remember yeah I believe they just sort of kept the bit where the headphone jack would be for authenticity hangout the headphone but didn't bother are cheaper like link apple so isn't it this is a Sega can call it courage oh yeah okay yeah so that is the hardware thing power the reset button which I think actually is actually used for like Sega mega drive mini unboxing controls yeah that Sega mega drive mini unboxing than actually resetting anything and then yeah there is a volume slider which I believe does work I think that does work I wish I wish you could pop that lid open and like put like mini disc so you kind of can you not playable like some people have asked if you can play like actual original Mega Drive cartridges on it and you can't it's the wrong size it won't work please don't try if you're in Japan you can buy a little like fake sonic the hedgehog cartridge that's that's which will just sit in the top and is I built for it I've heard you know maybe that might come outside Japan but we don't know for sure I hope so but to be clear again that is not a functional cartridge you cannot play an can What to wear for cycling loose vs lycra clothing consider Mega Drive Sega mega drive mini unboxing in this thing otherwise we've got two USB ports on the front so that is where the controllers plug in and then on the back we have the HDMI and the USB for charging so pretty simple so it's got battery life Sega mega drive mini unboxing know it's got a point to make all the time yeah so there we go last thing we haven't had yet the controllers it's this - lets do anything okay more cables that's important look at this look at it it's that boy like you know that we're seeing like the difference between Australian and British cable removal styles right herer so yeah here we have the controller you'll note it's the three button the variant now there was some question about whether Sega mega drive mini unboxing get six button variant cuz Japan gets a six button pad Europe in the u.s.
get a three button version but a company called retro bit is making officially-licensed six button pads so that is like approved by Sega you'll be able to buy them separately for like 18 pounds eighteen dollars I think and they'll come out at the same time as the console basically so if you really really want a six pad because I know street fighters on there you can get one you've just got to Sega mega drive mini unboxing a bit more and the other thing I want to look at is controller length because did you ever use the nes or snes mini?
once at a party right Sega mega drive mini unboxing are great but the controller cables absolutely miniscule yeah whereas I don't think that's even all gonna be for Srga see if we Sega mega drive mini unboxing hit a camera from there yeah no that's I do have a length somewhere and what that's a meter yeah probably a meter that's it long it's a long cable so you can actually plug this into your TV and sit back from it which is nice and you know the controllers feel like yeah the chunky the responsive the d-pads a drivw you know yeah yeah I'm not in love with that d-pad I'll be honest but yeah does maintain the plasticky feel yeah weird thing is I actually think this controller feels megq of heavier than the console I think so as well at the very least they're pretty close so the controllers are full scale that's like the actual original size but the console is obviously so reduced we unbosing spoke about games what you actually get alright which people may already know but there are kind of Sega mega drive mini unboxing kind of 42 games depending on what you consider a classic and yeah there are 14 classic games and two bonus titles 42 games total so the classic ones are some of the obvious things the list varies for Japan and Korea but North American and like Europe Australia will get the same stuff obviously you've got like Sonic the Hedgehog one and two and I think three is on here somewhere like spin oh I don't know spinball Sonic Spinball yeah dr.
Robotnik's mean bean machine whatever that is but it's um Megga kidd https://pikespeakpoetlaureate.org/download-anime/the-japanese-sony-playstation-2-psx-dvr-a-flawed-masterpiece-review-softmod-usb-hdd-games.php there I'm psyched Ecco the Dolphin earthworm Jim we just click for source pretend that ecco is good yeah yeah we got contra, sis that contra?
no that's comix zone comics with an x there's a Castlevania I'll play yeah Mickey Mouse castle illusion Street fighter uboxing now you can find the whole list online obviously but it's 40 games which is really good because there's a Sega mega drive mini unboxing more than the other ones Review 64 psychic school wars the snes and the nes were 20 and the PlayStation was well maybe just 20 by the way it's not 40 not like you didn't get any bonus games no bonus game super rare bonus game yep one is Darius which I have personally never heard of before it's a shmup yeah yeah it's it's a kind of yeah yeah like spaceship-y shmup which model nes101 historian top loader Nes 2 gaming was an arcade game I think they tried to put on Mega Drive and it just never got published the other erive title is the super rare limited edition impossible to get Tetris but you know yeah I've never unboxig Tetris it's true yeah always on the very high on the black market uh-huh yeah yet basically I think they were originally going to publish Tetris on the genesis drife drive like way back Sega mega drive mini unboxing and then there was some rights kerfuffle ah you right so right there a whole thing unboxibg about Tetris is actually fascinating meya thing so they basically made the game and it never came out so there's like ten cartridges in the world or something like drivee or you know the people who are unbboxing those cartridges are probably real bummed about this the value of a Mega Drive Tetris cartridge has just plummeted.
I get it I like good dinky box I mean I'm an n64 kid the moment the n64 classic mini will ever arrivesif it does like yeah I will spend my money I feel like you too unoxing maybe the game's equivalent of like people who own vinyls yeah I also have vinyl so and I'm a sucker for that mess as well yeah so I mean release day wise if you're in the US the genesis mini is out today erive if you're in the UK and Europe and I think Australia is the same but I might Sega mega drive mini unboxing wrong it's October 4th price-wise it is 70 pounds $80 80 Sega mega drive mini unboxing and a crippling hundred and forty Australian dollars and how do you feel that's the beach tax kicking in right there yeah look I can't I can't say I'm surprised yeah but I can'be disappointed yeah buy one while you're here like you know we're save save some money Yeah right we are gonna plug this in and have a play that cheers for watching like and subscribe you know the drill thanks guys
