The Coleco “Sonic Handheld”, available for preorder at Target now, is a portable handheld gaming system that features a bunch of Sega Genesis titles. We don’t really know where this came from, Coleco announced that it was going to release a new Colecovision console back in November of 2005. A year later, we get our the Sonic Handheld instead. Don’t get me wrong: I’m a big fan of original Sega Genesis games too, but this gaming system came out of nowhere. The good news is, it’s only $49.99, and you’ll be able to play 20 original Sega Genesis games on the handheld. The games include:
Altered Beast – mmmmmmmmm.
