I guess with USB ports, you can use other controllers with it.
The box does say it has a cartridge slot, which makes it much more compelling IMO. If it also supported original controllers, I'd really be interested, so I could use my Arcade Power Stick.

Oh damn. Yeah, this will be a definite buy for me. That's already a really strong list.

Man I wanted MUSHA like Japan is getting, but Super Fantasy Zone is cool.

Thunder Force III, nice! The list is great so far, love the two Mickey Mouse games too, along with the usual Sega inclusions.

I know it won't happen, but man would I LOVE it if Splatterhouse 2 or 3 showed up on this.

Although I already have the Sega Ages version, I'm surprised they chose Thunder Force III and not Thunder Force IV/Lightening Force

Wow, surprised they got the Mickey games on this. This is starting to look more appealing. Earthworm Jim is a good addition too.

I wonder if the recently released Retro-Bit controllers which are 6 button would work with this. They have a USB and standard Genesis port controller and theyíre officially licensed by Sega.

The device has already been rated T for Teen, so no Mature rated games will be on there.

Hopefully, QuackShot starring Donald Duck be on it. Loved that game.

My friend had the Genesis and I had the SNES, so I got to play many of these but it's a great list so far. Already happily pre-ordered.

This definitely pushes me toward getting this. My wife loves playing World of Illusion with our kids, but she doesn’t like playing it on my hacked Wii.

10 more announced today. Unfortunately I think half of those or more have already been offered on one collection or the other but Mega Man The Wily Wars was a nice surprise.

Yeah, compared to the last batch of announcements these newest ten games are pretty underwhelming. A lot of them are ones I feel like would end up on a Genesis collection like Golden Axe and Vectorman. Something like a version of Street Fighter II is expected too. Mega Man: The Wily Wars is kind of a cool inclusion, but itís really just a weird remake of some of the NES games.

Pretty sure itís just for looks and not a working cartridge slot.

I'm still holding out hope for some cool surprise announcement. Something like TMNT, XMen, Maximum Carnage, Aladdin, Punisher, etc. Anything like that would be enough to push me over the edge to buy.

Any of those, or take one title out and add The Lion King, and I am on my way to pre-order one.

Announcement 2 wowed me, but other than Wiley Wars nothing in this lineup really impressed me. I hope there's a big gun in the final announcement.

Re: Sega Genesis Mini coming 9/19/19 for $80

The last games were announced today. Some cool surprises in there with Road Rash 2 and Eternal Champions. Looks like 42 games total instead of the original announcement of 40.

Road Rash 2 instantly makes me happy I pre-ordered.

Like with the third list I canít help but feel a little disappointed. They should have saved those big titles from list two if they didnít have big reveals for later. Overall itís still a decent lineup of games and I do have mine pre-ordered though.

They're only including the three button controller, right? Isn't that going to be a problem with something like Eternal Champions?

Not the ideal situation, but Retro-Bit recently released officially licensed Genesis controllers. Both standard port for original hardware and USB port versions. Itís been confirmed the USB controller will work with this. They sell for like $20.

One thing I find odd about this (as well as other Genesis collections), why is Sonic The Hedgehog 3 always left out? The first two always seem to be included. Iíve heard about rights issues due to the soundtrack as Michael Jackson worked on it at one point, but they didnít end up using his material in the game. Itís the one Sonic game Iím actually not that familiar with either and would like to play it (I donít own it at all at this point). Ideally all the Sonic games (also Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic 3D Blast) should be here if you ask me.
