Coleco has launched a rebranded dirt-cheap portable console called the PlayPal, which retails for $20 at Target. It's flimsy as can be, but packs a near 3 inch screen and runs twenty classic Sega Master System and Game Gear games. If you do the math its a much better bargain than shopping Sega on the Virtual Console. The most redeeming quality about this thing is that it also doubles as a remote since you can hook it up to your TV. Here's what's inside:
Play on the go, or plug into your TV for big-screen fun • Games include: Sonic Drift II, Assault City, Kung Fu Kid, Fantasy Zone, The Maze, The Ninja, Super Columns, Astro Warrior, Bomber Raid, Sonic Triple Trouble, Alex Kidd in High Tech World and more • 1 player, ages 5+ , A/V cable included, runs on 3 AAA batteries
Makes a perfect gift for a little gamer, or someone who has a dog you f**cking despise. I think they can easily choke on this and die if you wrap it with bacon.
