Sega’s Genesis Mini retro console is now available at the lowest price we’ve ever seen. If you were waiting for a price reduction, now might be the time to buy.
The Genesis Mini launched on September 19, 2019, to mostly favorable reviews. The $79.99 console shipped with 42 pre-installed games including fan favorites like ToeJam & Earl, Comix Zone, Earthworm Jim, Ecco the Dolphin, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Road Rash II, just to name a few.
In Japan, Sega even launched a “mini tower” of non-functional accessories to add to the console. The complete kit includes a replica Sega CD (the Mega CD), a 32X and a couple of cartridges to plug into the top of the 32X. Unfortunately, Sega hasn’t released the kit for North American markets and only sent out a few examples to select members of the press.
The pre-Black Friday sale over at Amazon features the Genesis Mini for just $49.99, or roughly $30 off its normal list price. That’s the lowest price you’re likely to find before the holidays – remember, this isn’t the ill-fated PlayStation Classic so don’t expect prices to plummet like they did with Sony's system.
