Coming soon: Portable Sega Megadrive

Feeling nostalgic for the Sega Megadrive? Well, you can soon get one to carry around with you. As long as you’re in Brazil that is.

TecToy – a company local to that particular country – has done a deal with Sega to produce a portable Sega Megadrive, which should be on sale from December 5th. For a price that’s equivalent to £50, you can pick up the machine above pre-loaded with 20 Sega classics, including the likes of Ecco, Sonic & Knuckles, Alex Kidd and Golden Axe.

But there are downsides. For one, there’s no way of adding more games, so you’re stuck with the 20. And it is powered by 3x AAA batteries – which are unlikely to last long, so budget for that too. If that’s no drawback, these are likely to flood into the UK as imports in early 2008.
