Im shocked, its like 1991 all over again! – Sales of The Sega Megadrive have rocketed by 400% so The Daily Mail reports….
More than 25 years since its release, Sega’s Mega Drive is expected to be a surprise hit this Christmas. Fans of the original console are flocking to buy the re-released machine, with sales having soared by more than 400 per cent in recent weeks.
Despite it not being as advanced as the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, the £39.99 ($76) machines are flying off the shelves, according to retailer Argos.
Ok so its not the original Megadrive (obviously!) but its a very good clone, with 80 built in games
