    The usermanual on this page has a list of the games included. In a smart move they included Eternal Champions. Now it is the ultimate fighting package as it also has super sf 2. The last 40 games mentioned look to not be genesis games at all.

    Good call on the user manual. I'll update the front page.

    Of course Capcom's 3rd Genesis game would be the other Genesis version of Street Fighter...

    Edit: Why are they still using Sonic 2 HD's logo in the manual?

    My guess, they think it's official.

    What? Don't be silly.
    Those last 40 look like cheapass cell-phone games.

    Also, no Sonic 3? Seriously?

    Wasn't there a topic where those games were discussed? IIRC they are genesis games, but are coded to take advantage of of the different AtGames hardware (something with the VDP, so they don't work on emulators). I remember there was a page where you could download some of these games.

    Edit: (these games all have the same header as the Chuchu Rocket demo by fonzie) I wish an emulator would support these.

    I remember playing that first "Air Hockey" game on Genesis Plus GX the other day (to my dismay)... so I guess that the others might be Genesis games as well.

    Writing my own MD/Genesis sound driver :D
    We know at least some of them were made with some ancient devkit Fonzie made ages ago... I forget the link to the Pirate Game Central forums post with that info (search for Nice Code under the Genesis column). I don't remember the technical details but I don't think they were pure Genesis...?

    Anyone know if the ATGames machines are compatible with Sonic 3K? I am considering getting this for my brother for christmas. I hope Sonic 3 wasn't left off cause it is incompatible. Also, does SRAM work?

    If I recall Sonic 3 is fully functional gameplay wise, but some of the music/sounds are absolutely horrible. I don't have one of these on me to verify though.

    I just read a review for a earlier AT games portable Genesis system with a SD card slot and it don't support SRAM. Since a used PSP at Gamestop is only 20 dollars more I think I'll get that instead. I'll still have to buy a SD card but it'll make the better gift cause many more emulators can be used plus PS1 games can be used too. Plus there is savestates. I guess the SRAM issue is why Sonic 3 was left off the game list, funny that Megaman is included though cause that DOES use SRAM.

    I thought Wily Wars used Serial EEPROM and the patched versions used SRAM?

    PSP doesn't use SD cards, it uses a Sony property format. Namely a Memory stick duo.

    Ooorgh. I only have a modest ability to tell pitch, and that bad sound emulation is like grating my ears with hotsauce covered sandpaper.

    This is why I'd use some portable computer over any of these cheapo pre-set things.

    Is that why the sonic 4 soundtrack is so horrible? Because the youth of today grew up with bad emulation and associate it with the 'classic' sound

    So this should be out now. I wonder if anyone has dumped the Megaman Wily Wars ROM from it. It'd be interesting to have the US ROM. Assuming it is the US ROM and not the EU one.

    Can't really afford one at the moment, but I do look for it in toy stores and the like just to have a look at the box.
