The Sega Mega Drive is the perfect gift for anyone that wants to revisit glorious 16-bit gaming from the good old days. Yin-Poole, Wesley (April 29, 2016). "Modders are already having fun with Sega Mega Drive classics on Steam". Eurogamer . Retrieved May 3, 2016.

As a result of the congressional hearings, Night Trap started to generate more sales and released ports to the PC, Sega 32X, and 3DO. According to Digital Pictures founder Tom Zito, "You know, I sold 50,000 units of Night Trap a week after those hearings." [101] Although experiencing increased sales, Sega decided to recall Night Trap and re-release it with revisions in 1994 due to the congressional hearings. [105] After the close of these hearings, video game manufacturers came together to establish the rating system that Lieberman had called for. Initially, Sega proposed the universal adoption of its system, but after objections by Nintendo and others, Sega took a role in forming a new one. This became the Entertainment Software Rating Board, an independent organization that received praise from Lieberman. [101] With this new rating system in place for the 1994 holiday season, Nintendo decided its censorship policies were no longer needed, and the SNES port of Mortal Kombat II was released uncensored. [102] 32-bit era and beyond The truth of the matter is that those of us who are serious about retro gaming as a hobby are not the market for consoles like these. Having all of these games pre-loaded on a single console is a convenience, nothing else. Cost wise, there are games we couldn’t afford to buy individually or not without saving up or struggling to justify the expense to our other halves but many simply don’t feel that the drop in quality or hardware limitations are worth it.

As reported by Video Games Chronicle, the console was announced during a Japanese live stream and is expected to be released on October 27 in Japan, though an international release hasn't been confirmed as of yet.

All these flaws do bring me to the real crux surrounding my review of this console and others I have looked at and will be in the future (including the Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega I reviewed recently) – just who is this console aimed at and are the hardcore Sega fans right to be angry over the machine’s failings? Following the launch of the next-generation 32-bit Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn, sales of 16-bit hardware and software continued to account for 64% of the video game market in 1995. [108] Sega underestimated the continued popularity of the Genesis and did not have the inventory to meet demand. [108] [109] Sega captured 43% of the dollar share of the U.S. video game market and claimed to have sold more than two million Genesis units in 1995, while Genesis software such as Vectorman remained successful, but Kalinske estimated that "we could have sold another 300,000 Genesis systems in the November/December timeframe". [109] Nakayama's decision to focus on the Saturn, based on the systems' relative performance in Japan, has been cited as the major contributing factor in this miscalculation. [108] By contrast, Nintendo concentrated on the 16-bit home console market, as well as its successful handheld, the Game Boy, and took in 42% of the video game market dollar share without launching a 32-bit console. [108] Following tensions with Sega Enterprises, Ltd. over its focus on the Saturn, Kalinske, who oversaw the rise of the Genesis in 1991, lost interest in the business and resigned in mid-1996.
