Clone console hardware has come a great distance over the previous 15 years. What was the area of sketchy shopping center kiosks offering off-brand NESes claiming to include 1,000 video games (990 of which have been unusually named hacks of Tremendous Mario Bros. and Contra, and none of which have been legally licensed) has turn out to be a booming, authentic enterprise, thanks partially to the large success off the NES Basic and Super NES Basic. Analogue Co.'s new Mega Sg—a high-end Sega Genesis clone—arrives amidst heavy competition, and it comes with a fairly steep price tag of $189.99 that anyone in search of a quick and simple hit of nostalgia might discover off-putting. What Analogue guarantees in return, nevertheless, is something no other Genesis clone available on the market can supply: Complete fidelity to the unique hardware, with zero obstacles to an ideal plug-and-play gaming expertise on high-definition and 4K televisions. While it seems the Mega Sg does not quite obtain that lofty objective both, it comes remarkably shut and presents the perfect Genesis expertise available on the market.
