Genesis titles can now be played from your keychain

Sega Genesis games can be played on various consoles such as the Saturn, PSP, PS2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360, Gamecube, Wii, and PC. Now gamers can add their key chains to that list. The Sega Arcade Nano is a miniature keychain console that can plug into televisions.  There are currently two keychains available.  The Sonic Arcade Collection includes Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic 2, Sonic Spinball, Sonic 3D Blast, and Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle. The Virtua Fighter 2 Collection consists of its namesake, Shinobi, Golden Axe, Golden Axe 3, and Alienstorm. The keychains are now available for pre-order from Firebox for £12.99.

I love the concept but am uncertain how it will feel to hold such a tiny controller.  Is the Sega Arcade Nano Keychain something you would consider or are you fully saturated with Genesis compilations?

  • How does it connect to the TV?
    £12.99 seems a little steep in the current economic climate here in the UK. Pass.

    Is it PAL or NTSC?

  • Here, looks like a mini usb- to – AV cable and runs on a single battery, I wonder how long the cable is?

    Carrying a long bound cable sort of defeats the element of portability, if as a keyring is designed for more spontaneous gaming sessions.

  • Actually looking at that image it seems you will be sitting very close to the TV.

  • hmmm thanks for the better picture MikeMov89,
    The cable does look real short, and exactly, who is gonna wanna carry around that too!
    Especially when people seem to have headphones tangled up in their pocket for their mp3 players nowadays too!

    That’s a good question, John! They’re PAL.

    I wasn’t able to find any hard specs about the AV cord’s length. Though I have noticed many reviewers have cited it as being a bit short.
