    So while looking around on eBay today, I stumbled across This auction for something called the "Cordless Elite" for Sega Genesis, which is essentially just a wireless controller for the system. Only problem was that this was never released, and only this mockup exists for it. That and this magazine scan for it:

    So... Is this worthy enough to get a page on SegaRetro? Just wonderin'.

    Someone should write up a wiki article anyway and include the ebay photo. Make sure to mention that a similar product was actually released eventually.

    I think it should be clearly spelled out here that the controller in the Ebay listing is a mock-up prototype and doesn't actually work. Just in case someone blows some mad stacks thinking otherwise.

    I got some third-party wireless 3 button control pads, I forget the brand though.

    May start a small page about my MD collection.
    Do you frequently use them? I have one for my psone and hate to switch batteries.

    Yeah not really, also the 3 buttons can be a bit limiting for a lot of games.
