I would have never thought this would happen...
« on: March 26, 2006, 08:05:32 PM »
Nintendo's head honchos recently announced that their new console will play.... drum roll....

Sega Genesis Games!

and TurboGrafix16...

for those who were avid video game buffs/players back in the early 90s and late 80s would remember these 3 rivals were airing commercials against one another relentlessly (remember the phrase: Genesis does! What Nintendon't!)...anyway this news is quiet a shocker..

Then again, in an era of corporate mergers and buy-outs anything is possible..

I for one feel Nintendo played their cards right here.  They have championed their target market for the younger generation of players and adding old-school Sega Genesis games (along with NEC's Turbografix) will attract the more adult gamers to their camp.
