salozmen29: Just buy a used genesis for 20 bucks. That way you don't have to deal with the awful lag and sound issues that the flashback has.
zgamer100: I was thinking of getting one of the sega genesis ones. Which is better the console or portable.
Dad1972hthorn: Streets of Rage is there not Street Fighter.
raydeen2k: Heh, I remember Hard Drivin'. Drive to close to the barn and the cow goes 'Moo!' :D
Chris Ouillette: I have the flash back
Grimace982: can you save game progress on the Genesis Portable?
WebVMan: Sonic has slow audio and framerate according to your video. But at least you can play the original carts which seem to run fine. As far as the portable system goes, I wonder if a ROM of Sonic would run better than the installed version.
Mew2.0: I got shaq fu for $.50
blitzwing297: I found the portable Genesis at a locale Doller General. I love the thing and the d-pad and buttons are nice an tight. There's nothing like playing Street Fighter and Streets Of Rage 3 in the break room. I also picked up the console version as a backup Genesis. That and to piss off a co-worker....
chaozznl: fine, although i must be honest. i had to open up the Genesis Portable to fix one of the buttons, but is was an easy fix. d-pad and buttons are fine nonetheless.
PJo Logan: How good are the D-Pad and buttons of the Portable Genesis ?
chaozznl: On all the other webshops it seems to be Out of Stock. :(
cphacker95/The Hacker: only ebay so far? ok thanks anyways man.
chaozznl: They're on ebay, but you might end up overpaying. Can't find them anywhere else. I have one eating dust here. :)
cphacker95/The Hacker: do you guys happen to know where i could find the portable genesis at?
Stinger2578: Here in the US, DollarGeneral is selling the Portable Sega Genesis and the Atari Flashback 4 for $25.00 today.
ILOVEVHS: Those Sonic games had hideous lag! I hope that problem doesn't happen with the cartridges!
chaozznl: I you lived in NL it would have sold you mine :)
chaozznl: I don't like the wireless IR controllers either, but you can consider it an extra feature. Wired controllers work too on this machine.
diosoth: IR wireless tech is outdated by well more than a decade, there's no reason any console maker should use it beyond being incredibly cheap. Considering the FB4 retails for $40 I think RF would have been warranted in the production and manufacturing budget.
