LOS ANGELES – With Nintendo and Sony seemingly done with their retro console pushes, Sega is stepping up to fill the void this September with the $79 Sega Genesis Mini. And if my time with Sega’s adorable nostalgia box at E3 is any indication, it could be the new retro console to beat.

Taking cues from the SNES Classic and PlayStation Classic, the Genesis Mini is a tiny but faithfully detailed replica of Sega’s iconic 16-bit games machine from 1989. The system (which is 55 percent the size of the Genesis Model 1) is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, is powered by USB and connects to your TV via HDMI.
