Two New Bundles Launched Letting You Play Classic 80s Games on a Modern Console


It seems like every month there are additional classic games consoles and classic arcade game machines for sale. Over the last two weeks, two new options became available:

• Sega Genesis Classics

• Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

They are both low cost, they include multiple titles, and you can play them on your existing games console – if you can get your children away from the screen.

Sega Genesis Classics

The Sega Genesis is now a classic games console. It was also known as the Sega Mega Drive (outside the US) and it launched in Japan in 1988, with the US version launching the following year. Over 30 million of the consoles were sold before Sega discontinued the Genesis, replacing it with the Sega Saturn.

The Sega Genesis featured many games that are still fantastic fun to play today. Luckily, Sega Genesis Classics includes many of these titles. It is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It costs $30.

A total of 53 classic Sega games are in the bundle including three Sonic the Hedgehog titles (Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Sonic 3D Blast).

Other 1980s Sega classics in the list of 53 include:

• Altered Beast

• Golden Axe

• Phantasy Star II

• The Revenge of Shinobi

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection by Capcom is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It costs $40 and includes 12 titles.

Number one on this list is the original 1987 game Street Fighter. This was the game that captured the imagination of so many children and teenagers in the late 80s and early 90s and is still popular today.

The new collection also includes:

• Street Fighter II: The World Warrior

• Street Fighter II: Champion Edition

• Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting

• Super Street Fighter II

• Super Street Fighter II Turbo

• Street Fighter Alpha

• Street Fighter Alpha 2

• Street Fighter Alpha 3

• Street Fighter III: New Generation

• Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact

• Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike

While playing authentic classic games titles on a modern console is fun, it doesn’t compare to the real experience of playing on a full-size upright arcade machine. You can have this experience too, however – check out our range of arcade machines today.
