Console plays NES and Genesis games, costs $50


Hot damn, folks. If all the talk of newfangled gaming coming out of E3 this week has you longing for a simpler time, might I suggest — nay, demand — that you consider the $50 GEN-X Genesis/NES Game System from ThinkGeek?

It’s a console that plays both NES and Genesis cartridges, comes with two Genesis-style controllers, and hooks up to your TV via composite cables. Sure, you could go the computer-based emulation route for much cheaper but there’s something oh-so satisfying about blowing out those dusty cartridges. Bonus: it “plays most Japanese import games” as well.
