    Default Atari Flashback: A Sega console next year?

    Last year right before the holidays, Atari released a new system, the Atari Flashback. The Flashback has twenty games built into it from the Atari 2600 and the Atari 7800. Although the system isn't supposed to be amazing or anything, Sega fans should be interested. Apparently Atari has made a lot of money off of the Flashback. Atari is a company that hasn't made a system in years, and so is Sega. Do you think that Sega should follow in Atari's footsteps and make a system with built in games from the Master System or the Genesis? Perhaps Atari is testing the waters with the Flashback, and other companies such as SNK and Sega will follow in future years. Hey, it's the closest thing to a new Sega system that we are likely to get for a little while. I'd buy it, would you?

    And I'm sure all 5 people that know about this are just the key demographic for SEGA to target their next console toward....

    sounds pretty cool. My sister bought my dad a flashback for Christmas. I played it myself, pretty fun. (battle zone is stinkin hard tho. ><)

    If sega did something like this, I'd probably buy it, depending on if the games appealed to me.

    I was actually thinkin about this a while ago.

    It's amazing that people think of these bunk, idiotic ideas for SEGA to copy....


    Again, considering a total of 5 people know about the Atari Flashback...and every SEGA fanboy complains about SEGA's financial ruin...do you morons not think before posting?

    "OMG, I WOULD TOTALLY BUY A SEGA FLASHBACK SO I CAN PLAY SONIC 1-3 100 MORE TIMES!! OH, OH, AND THE OTHER 2 SEGA FANBOYS WHO'LL BUY THIS CAN ARGUE WITH ME OVER WHICH PORT OF SONIC 2 IS BETTER!!!".

    Note to Fanboys: Think before posting.

    I fixed the Brazilian links.

    I think the Mega Drive plug n play by Tectoy is somewhat popular in brazil...ask Tristan.

    As for the 6 in 1 official made-by-Sega ones, their emulation sucks and the games they include aren't even the best ones.

    You know you can't sell your product worth a damn #23

    You know you can't sell your product worth a damn when your primary source of sales is in Brazil

    Sega and Atari need to stop. Just sell the original console.

    The 6 in 1's are avaliable here in the US. Just not the TecToy made genesis.
