Sega, Atari Classic Consoles Will Begin Pre-orders Soon

New details have just been released for the Sega Genesis Flashback and Atari Flashback 8 Gold consoles. Pre-orders for both will start at the end of the month.

On July 28, both consoles will be available for pre-order at major retailers. There’s no word on exactly when they’ll be shipping, but creator AtGames says it will be sometime in Fall 2017. As for how much they’ll cost, the company says more details are coming later in July.

Not unlike the success of the NES Classic Edition and the upcoming SNES Classic Edition, the two consoles come pre-loaded with many games. For the Sega Genesis Flashback, 85 games come preloaded, including many classic favorites like Sonic & Knuckles, Mortal Kombat II and 3, Phantasy Star II, and Comix Zone. You can check out the full list here. The system will come with 720p HDMI output, two Genesis-style wireless controllers, two controller ports for optional wired gamepads, and a save/pause/rewind feature for every game.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
