This console isn’t compatible with cartridges, but rather relies on software emulation. SEGA teamed up with M2 for that, and now, you get save states in all of your favorite games, which means you won’t have to finish them in one go, but rather at your convenience. Oh, did we mention that today, August 14th, is the 30th anniversary of the SEGA Genesis? More information.
