    I get licensing plays a big part of it, but why not just shove as many games as possible in there. Surely there are more than 42 titles that they can get the license of easily (hell I bet there's more than 42 titles that they own the license for)

    Trouble is they don't need to for it to sell in droves. It opens the posibility of follow ups as well where thet squeeze a bit more coin out of fan boys.

    Like you say, they probably have more than that under their own license, physical space for storage isn't an issue, and increased memory capacity would only add pennies, but business is business I guess at the end of the day.

    @Ahkey yeah they could have replaced sonic spinball with sonic 3 or even virtua fighter 2 which if my memory serves, was a terrible port.

    Re: Sega shares complete list of titles built-into Mega Drive Mini

    I can never really understand why these retro consoles don't have a little more storage and a built-in app store for buying more games. As it is, they get modded by enthusiasts and used to run "pirate" roms. I know I'd be happy to pay a small amount (let's say five pounds) to download roms that I actually want to play.

    This would satisfy those missing their favourite titles (eg. I'm wishing for more Shining games, for example) and allow the manufacturers a future income stream.

    I know it would mean an ethernet port or wifi so the bill of parts goes up by a couple of dollars, but you'd think the potential of future revenue would more than justify it. Plus, it'd allow for firmware improvements (cough, ps mini).

    Worth it just for a portable Sonic 2 machine, my brother and I still haven't figured who is the best.

    Sonic Spinball was great. Sonic 3 on the other hand just didn't have anywhere near the appeal of Sonic 2 to me.

    I'm pretty sure that 'Mega Drive Tower Mini' will do well in Western countries too, if it becomes available there..!

    This one seems to have a lot more games:

    Can't see what the major difference will be...
