The Sega Genesis Mini has proven to be a great, little microconsole with a bunch of fantastic classic games. However, only the Japanese version came with the six-button pad–the North American version comes with the original three-button controller. This may be disappointing to some, but there are third-party options if you’d like all six buttons, and now Walmart is bundling the mini console with one of those beloved controllers for $90 USD.
Sega Genesis Mini + Innex six-button controller
The Sega Genesis Mini comes with two controllers, but this bundle from Walmart includes an Innex six-button pad. You can choose between the classic black or a translucent blue plastic for the controller’s shell. Buying the system and controller separately would cost you $100, but this bundle offers a $10 savings, bringing the price down to $90.
In GameSpot’s Sega Genesis Mini review, our Peter Brown praised the microconsole, despite some of its setbacks. “So the Mini has some issues, and for M2 fans it might be a little disappointing to see that it falls short of the team’s most ambitious retro projects from the past, but for the most part the Mini is a very satisfying little console,” he wrote.
“It’s got the looks, it’s got a great selection of games that largely play faithful to the original experience, and it’s priced just right at $80–though you may disagree if the six-button games like Street Fighter II are critical factors. Genesis fans have waited a long time for a system like this, and for once, we’re happy to say that the latest official Genesis console is one worth buying.”
