VERSUS




Both Systems Got Nothing Special About Them. Besides That The Model 3 Doesnt Have The Exp. Port For The Sega Cd And The Game Genie Doesnt Work With The Top Loading Nes.

WHAT ONE WOULD BE COOLER TO HAVE??

    My vote is for Top Loading NES. It much more reliable than its forward-loading predecessor and, on top of that, it's easily to clean and doesn't take as much space.
    The past is like one big abandoned desert, vast and empty. But sift through it enough, you'll find the greatest treasures forgotten by time. That's retrogaming!

      I'll take the Sega Genesis. This era saw the peak of cartridge based systems. I didn't own a Genesis but an SNES and I'd take any version of SNES over the NES, Genesis competed with the superior system. It is the winner.

        Definitely The NES. It was is and always will be The King Of Home Consoles. Sure The Atari had competition from The Intellivision and The Colecovision but so did The NES. The Sega Master system and through good marketing , advertising and business management. The NES went on and smashed The Master System. NES Top Loader by far.

            I have a Sega Genesis Model II and a Sega Genesis Model III. The only difference between the two is the size and the fact that the Gen III can't use any peripherals like the Sega CD, Sega 32X, or the Game Genie. I use my Genesis II more often because it has more of a nostalgic feel to it and if I feel like it, I can use my Game Genie. If I'm showing off the Genesis or taking it with me somewhere, I like the Genesis III better.

            Sega Genesis III Pros and Cons:

            Pros:
            -600+ Games for the Console (something for everyone)
            -Portable
            -Sleek slim design (looks nice next to a PS3 or XBOX 360)
            -Uses all previous controllers

            Cons:
            -No longer made (you can only find it in a resale shop or on ebay)
            -Rarity and Price point ($30-$70 used; I got mine off of ebay for $35)
            -No new games (but with 600+ games, if you can't find something you like, then don't buy it)
            -Not compatible with Sega CD, Sega 32X, or Game Genie (Game Genie is good for cheating, but what were Sega CD and Sega 32X any good for?)

            In my opinion, the pros far outweigh the cons. But, If you want a smaller, Sega-branded model of the Genesis, I suggest the Genesis III. If you don't particularly care, I would suggest getting a Genesis II. This model fixed some of the common problems with the original model (integrated circuits, better a/v system, universal rf, a/v, and a/c adapter cables for the entire Sega Genesis line) and ended up being a great product through out the 90's.

            If you would like a brand new Genesis console or are looking to completely upgrade your current Sega Genesis, I would suggest you pick up the Gen X Dual Station console.

            http://store.videogamecentral.com/genx-genesis-nintendo.html

            Not only does it play Sega Genesis titles, but if you never had the chance to experience the NES or vice versa and you want the best of both retro worlds, I would suggest picking it up. In the end, it is just a redesigned Genesis III with an added NES function, you can use Game Genie on this model, and you can also play import Mega Drive and Famicom games (JP and UK) with the flick of a switch.

            The company that made this also took the liberty of putting standard RCA cable jacks (red, white, and yellow) to solve any previous problems in hooking your Genesis console up to a newer TV. On top of that, the console includes two six button controllers so you can play two player arcade style games like Street Fighter II or the Mortal Kombat series right out of the box.

            I've seen a demonstration of this model on YouTube and I might have to pick one up this summer to add some longevity to my retro gaming hobby and also catch up on all the supposed NES classics I might've missed...^_^

                              Top loader NES. Preferrably the Japanese model because it has composite out. a: it looks cooler, b: it has cooler controllers, c: it solves that ZIF not reading games problem. genesis model 3 is somehow worse than the model 2. It looks worse and can't use the peripherals.
