The iconic Mega Drive and smaller Mega Drive II followed the Master System as Sega competed with Nintendo during the late 1980s and in to the 1990s.

But gaming’s come a long way in thirty years, with Sega shifting away from hardware in the early 2000s.

For many though the Mega Drive is the last great Sega console, with the Sega Saturn and Dreamcast failing to reverse fortunes for the company.

Still, retro-revellers can revisit the glory days with the Mini Mega Drive, now at its lowest ever price.

The Sega Mega Drive Mini has the classic design of the original console

The mini Mega Drive’s games are built-in – so there’ll be no need to swap or blow on cartridges to ensure they run smoothly.

Priced at £48, that could be viewed as £1 per game, plus six pounds for the hardware – solid value for the gaming on offer.

In fact it’s especially good value as you get all the fun of some genuine gaming classics.

Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 are both included, as strong a start as you’d hope for.

You’ll also find titles like Shinobi, Streets of Rage 2, Golden Axe, Alex the Kidd and Earthworm Jim.

For the hardware, you get the essentials: the console itself, one HDMI cable to connect to any modern TV, a power supply and two controllers.

The Mega Drive Mini might even make a great gift for Father’s Day, with some classic 1 vs 1 or co-op gaming.

And it should provide more than enough fun and eimeless nostalgia to enjoy for years to come.
