Sega Mega Drive Twin Pad Player

The Sega Mega Drive Twin Pad Player, a creation of Sega's official distributor in China (that would be AtGames), might not be a vintage or collector's machine, but it definitely seems like a handy gadget for retro gamers. It is after all a complete MegaDrive/Genesis that theoretically plays every cart from every region and comes with two joypads and 20 built-in games. What's more it does both NTSC and PAL games! Seems interesting; especially when considering the price, though I must admit it's not the most beautiful console I've ever seen. To buy one, better visit Play Asia.


  1. I have one of these. The compatibility isn't great, but it's not awful either. It has a PAL/NTSC switch and it's fun to try it out. many games have both versions in the ROM, so you can get different titles and so on by flipping the switch. The included games are nice but not stunning. If you already have a MD/Genesis give this a miss, but if you just want to play the built in games it's a good deal.

  2. Thanks for the excellent review Raphael. Deeply appreciated!
