    Looks like the Genesis Mini 2 will be hard to come by:

    Sega’s Genesis Mini 2 will have ‘one-tenth’ the supply, Sega says
    Sega’s Genesis Mini 2 will only get ‘a small number of units’ in North America

    Hopefully this will be remedied before the end of the production run. Supply chain issues strike again...

    So it costs over $120 to get an emulation box? And only available at all in North America because they figured out that they could sell it using a specific feature that Amazon allowed?

    Sega really has fallen a long way.

    “by using Amazon’s ‘Japan Store’ system, we found that at least a small number of units could be sold via Amazon.com, so a portion was allocated to make the North American version.”

    Thankfully Amazon had a way that Sega could sell their products to North America, otherwise Sega would be powerless to accomplish this. Unbelievable.

    no this doesent sound like a supply chain issue, and before any one says it theres no chip shortage too. TSMC and other fabs are telling their clients to come get their completed orders and they are dragging their feet.

    this sounds more like a money issue

    Input lag was honestly so bad on the Genesis Mini 1 that I traded it and went and bought an original Model 1 to play games on. Much better investment when you can get original genesis consoles fairly cheaply. The games on the other hand are a different ballgame...
