Description

Back in the early nineties if you'd have told a gaming geek that one day it would be possible to shoehorn Sonic The Hedgehog, Golden Axe, Kid Chameleon, Flicky, Altered Beast and Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine into a self-contained joystick that simply plugs into the telly, they would've said that was about as likely as Ross & Rachel getting togther in "Friends" and that thing called the "Internet" taking off.

Originally launched by Sega in 1989 UK for £190 (and that only included 1 game!), the Mega Drive was the 16-bit machine designed to take the place of Sega's successful Master System unit. However, sales floundered until Sega introduced Sonic The Hedgehog in 1991 and bundled the now-classic game free with the unit. The rest as they say, is history...

The Mega Drive caused a real stir in the home console market when it launched as it contained an impressive array of onboard hardware. Built around the 16-bit Motorola 68000 processor, the same chip that powered Apple's Macintosh, it was twice as fast the 8-bit chips used in other consoles around at the time.

The Mega Drive could display up to 64 colours on screen from a 512 colour pallette and featured a separate 8-bit processor dedicated to sound. All of this computing power translated into games with larger and more detailed characters, more complex graphics, faster action and a home games console that could finally compete with the coin-operated machines in the arcades.

As the name suggests, our new Sega Mega Drive 6-in-1 games unit crams six classic Mega Drive titles into one self-contained plug'n'play console complete with joypad. Just like our best-selling Atari and Namco Classics, this fabulous little box of gaming nostalgia plugs directly into your TV via handy AV cables, and it's so compact you can take it anywhere there's a TV on hand. Which is just about anywhere, let's face it. No swapping games cartridges over, no fuss.

As well buying you a trip down memory lane to a time long before the Xbox and PS2, the Megadive 6-in-1 features superb 16-bit graphics and fiendishly addictive gameplay; this is no ten minute wonder and we guarantee you'll be reaching for the Mega Drive 6-in-1 time and time again...

Featured Games
This bundle of six games and controller would have set you back nearly £300 back in the early nineties:

Sonic The Hedgehog
Once voted the World's Most Popular Computer Game, Sonic The Hedgehog was designed as Sega's answer to Nintendo's mascot Mario and was largely responsible for the success of the Mega Drive.

Golden Axe
The classic medieval swordfighting arcade beat-em-up.

Kid Chameleon
The sideways platform game featuring the hero with a split-personality.

Flicky
...Rescue the chickens from the cats!

Dr Robotniks Mean Bean Machine
Match the coloured beans before they pile up to the top of screen in this addictive puzzle game.

Altered Beast
The first ever Mega Drive game, Altered Beast was bundled free with the Mega Drive until Sonic The Hedgehog was launched in 1991.
