Blaze makes a Mega Drive Micro

blaze2.jpgBlaze International has a license to make plug and play hardware packed with Sega Genesis ROMs in Europe. Paying £29.99 ($56) for a handheld with 20 16-bit Genesis games seems steep since Sega Genesis Collection for the PSP costs around $20. It’s really the system’s design that makes Blaze’s device notable. Their device looks like Nintendo’s Game Boy Micro. Blaze didn’t give any size specs, so we’re left to guess how small it is. The picture of it in packaging makes it look small though and that makes it a neat collectable.


If you’re thinking about picking one of these up the list of games built into the system. It has TV out too, but only for PAL compatible TVs.

    Why is this little gadget receiving so much publicity? It’s certainly not the first of its kind, and its library isn’t exactly stellar. Now a custom Megadrive handheld with room for extra rom handling would be news-worthy!

  • Pedro Silva

    indeed, only 20 games is little.

  • I’ll never understand why some manufacturers insist on laying out the buttons vertically.
