New portable Mega Drive is disappointing

The new Mega Drive handheld console, released this week in Europe, has turned out to be a disappointment. The console is exactly the same as the TecToy portable Mega Drive which was released last year, and features the same licenced games used in every single Mega Drive TV game. Described as costing "as much as a DS game", you could do better with the budget Sega Mega Drive Collection on PSP for £10 which has eight more games than the new handheld.

To make one of these portable consoles worth buying, they should feature an actual Mega Drive cartridge slot and TV-Out functions. At present, it will only satisfy children and other non-hardcore Sega fans. Oh well, at least it looks nice.
