Sega will release new versions of its Mega Drive/Genesis — a console and a handheld — totaling in 80 built-in games in honor of Sonic's 25th anniversary, the Daily Dot reported. They are available for preorder for about $65 each. And if you're not into the 80 games (compared to the 30 on the Nintendo NES Classic Edition), the handheld device has an SD slot to input the game of your liking.
