I don't actually own a sega genesis console but I've been wanting to add one to my collection. (It was one of the systems that I was forced to give up in my youth.) Sonic's Ultimate Collection on my 360 is great for the basics, but playing Mutant League Football or Rocket Knight Adventures isn't an option right now. This looks really good. They've done this for other systems too? I have been thinking about replacing my NES as well, (mine doesn't work) maybe getting these remakes is a good idea? Do they have save states or anything like that? Or is it just a nice mega compatible HD Genesis?

So, with the developer's insistence on accuracy to the original experience, there are no save states with Analogue consoles. I personally find it to be a good thing because it forces you to beat the games as the original designers intended, whereas savestates make every game easy.

I would highly recommend you check it out. The NES version is currently out of stock - no word on when it will be back in production - but I've heard there is a way to load the NES core into the Super Nt via custom firmware.

I doubt the extremely expensive NT Mini will ever be back. I strongly suspect though that a sub-$200 successor will appear one of these days, built to standards more in line with the Super NT and Mega SG.

How do you load the NES firmware onto the Super NT? Would love to be able to do that, but it's never been discussed that I've seen in the giant Analogue/FPGA thread at AtariAge. I don't read every last post though, so it could've easily snuck past me.

I recognize that this isn’t the right place to ask this, but how are people liking the RetroUSB AVS? I *love* Analogue’s stuff as they are committed to accuracy, but the NT was already out of my price range to begin with at $500. It’s aftermarket price is just ridiculous, so I’ve been interested in the AVS instead.

I’m in love with the Super NT. And the Mega SG is a must buy, barring some unforeseen problem, which is unlikely.
