Get Ready 80s And 90s Kids! The Sega Genesis Is Back In Production!

The Sega Genesis is back in production! It's been about 20 years since the console was discontinued. But, after all the hype over the release of the "mini" versions, another company has decided to bring back the real deal.

TecToy has started preorders for the "all-new Sage Mega Drive Stock" - a total replica of the original console. The best part: Sega is on board with these consoles. The Brazillain company TecToy is a licensed manufacturing partner, so you can be sure the console will be up to standards.

Why is a Brazilian company bothering to bring back a system that is two decades old? Apparently in Brazil the Sega Genesis still sells in the upwards of 150,000 units per year!
