Our editors have compiled a list of the “Top 5 Strangest (or Coolest) Sega Mods” for your enjoyment. Which ones are your favorites?

5. Sega Genesis/Mega Drive Mini

Kotomi took one of those 6-in-1 Sega TV game devices and turned it into a Genesis/Mega Drive mini, complete with cartridge slot. One potential drawback, he doesn’t mention if the cartridge slot is functional — it’s an interesting project none the less. One more picture after the jump.

4. NESPlusSega

This all-in-one machine can play both Sega Genesis and NES games. The case was made from custom molded ABS plastic and features controller ports for both systems. [Source]

3. Saturn Controller on XBox 360

Twistedsymphony created a nifty adapter that allows you to use “a completely unmodified Sega Saturn controller to play XBox 360 games.” More information here.

More specifically I wanted a good 2D gamepad to play upcoming Xbox Live Arcade titles such as Street Fighter 2 Hyper Fighting and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Thankfully I was able to complete my adapter before either of the game have been release… so I’ll be ready


2. Portable Sega CDX

Most of you may not remember the CDX, it combined the Sega Genesis and Sega CD into one console. SegaSonicFan‘s portable CDX sports a 5″ display, JP/US import switch, second headphone jack, S-Video output, external controller switch, and a built-in automatic scan FM radio. It even plays 32X games.

1. Sega Genesis Guitar

Yes, this is actually a fully-functional Sega Genesis electric guitar, complete with strings. Unfortunately, the console is just for show purposes. [Source]
