    €57, including P&P to Europe. Bit too pricey for me to buy just as a display piece, but really awesome that it even exists!

    It is cool that such a old console is still being supported. I always enjoy hearing about Dreamcast getting new games too.

    You could always get the tape version OL, only €15

    My name's on the pre-order list.

    Very awesome. Will these cards work in the SMS1 ?

    You mean . . . This isn't a joke? I cracked up when they showcased the multiplayer mode . . .

    I don't see why not, SMS1 was region-free, but the cartridges have different dimensions and pin outs, so you'd have to modify your cart slot if you've got a western model.

    hey wiki you're so fine
    indeed

    These sorts of projects aren't uncommon, but I think this is the first time something like this has happened for the SG-1000. Usually it's all Atari 2600 or Intellivision - the SG-1000 doesn't have many friends


    And even then it's not that amazing - Astro Dodge has been brought to several platforms by this team and seems more of a techical exercise than something like... Christmas Carol vs. the Ghosts of Christmas Presents. Great thing to see though

    My SMS1 has a cart-slot on the front, I'm not sure what it's for?

    True I guess, though a new SC-3000 tape isn't quite as neat as an SG-1000 cart.

    That's the Sega Card slot. Not the same as a Japanese cartridge.

    hey wiki you're so fine
    (what's the point of online leaderboards if there are only fifty copies of the game)

    (it loses that competitive aspect if there's not really anyone to compete against)

    There will be a cassette release too, but yeah, not many hardcore SG-1000 / SC-3000 users out there anyway.
