The Generation nex always seemed cool, if not a little expensive to me. But I'm pretty sure Messiah Entertainment is now out of business so the only way to get one is second hand. The controllers looked interesting too.

I have one of these. They are nice especially with the wireless controllers.

I think there were only 3 games or something like that that didn't work on the generation nex.

Unfortunately castlevania 3 was one of them.

But just look at all the space your saving! haha it's pretty measly in size.

If you are looking for space savings and very good compatibility then go with the RetroN3.  Hyperkin makes it and its a solid system.  Offers S video for the Genesis and SNES side and but just composite for NES.  All 3 systems are offered in composite.  You can also use original controllers such as suggested earlier in this thread.

The sound for nes is pretty good.  The snes is spot on tho.  Genny sounds good as well tho not as good as the snes.
