What the Beatles and the Rolling Stones were to rock and roll, Nintendo and Sega were to early home gaming. So it’s no surprise that, with Nintendo’s announcement of their plug-and-play NES Classic, Sega is looking to get themselves in on the action. Sega, however, has already released versions of their classic consoles as plug-and-play machines – so, in order to stay both fresh and to offer up something their competitor hasn’t, they’ve released a fully-loaded handheld console.

Called the Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Portable Game Player – quite a mouthful – this retro gaming console is chock full of 80 Sega games (40 16-bit classics and 40 “bonus games”), including multiple entries from both the Sonic and Mortal Kombat catalogs. That’s more than double what Nintendo has promised. And, though you might think the 3.2″ LCD screen on this device doesn’t compare to your massive HDMI flatscreen, you don’t have to choose one or the other – the SMDUPGP can plug directly into your television. It even has an SD card slot so that you can download additional games to play on your device. It retails for just $54. [Purchase]
