Analogue Announces High-End Sega Genesis For Release Next Year

Earlier this year, Seattle-based technology company Analogue released the Super NT, a recreation of the Super Nintendo that natively played the system's games with digital output and no input lag, a follow-up to their NES version of the same concept. The little console, which was no small feat of engineering with a price tag proportional to that feat's size, presented a hardcore enthusiast's alternative to the official miniconsoles that were all the rage. Now, Analogue is declaring their own end to the hostilities of the 16-bit console wars by announcing their Genesis version of the same template, the Mega Sg.

The mini-Genesis plays games from the U.S. Genesis and Mega Drive natively by just popping in your preferred cart. Once you do, the Mega Sg produces a 1080p signal over HDMI for your TV with minimal input lag that matches how the original Sega Genesis played on your CRT over 20 years ago. After the system's release, Analogue plans to release cartridge adapters that will allow it to play games from other Sega systems, as well.

Three Crysis Games Come To Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

Remember when Crysis was this unobtainable dream of PC graphics with an impossible bar for modern hardware to hit its full potential? I remember poring over screenshots and thinking video games, at their best, could not look better than the original Crysis. The Xbox 360 version of the game is not quite in that same league, but you can still give it a little extra boost with today's announcement that three of the four Crysis games are coming to Xbox One's backwards compatibility program.

Crysis, Crysis 2, and Crysis 3 are all available now, according to a tweet by Microsoft's Larry Hryb.
