Sure, you can get your old classics on Wii's virtual console, but it just doesn't compare to being able to pop the cartridge in and play. This new hybrid console lets you play the best of the 8-bit and 16-bit video game generations, and has full compatibility with both the Nintendo Entertainment System and the SEGA Genesis games.
The system comes with everything you need, including controllers and A/V cables. While you can’t connect an original NES controller,(What the hell?) the ports are compatible with SEGA’s original controllers.
