Sega MegaDrive/Genesis lives again, in Brazil!

It was promised an HDMI output...

... but they dropped it in the last minute.

I'm from Brazil, and watched closely as the relaunch hype unfolded in other media, and HDMI output was being speculated. It had RCA output, but in a 8-pin DIN connector. Check the connector at:

I could see the host of problems when handling such a low resolution and parsing it up to the minimum resolutions available in HDMI. Not to mention that the video output was actually coded in 15-bit color space, as many emulators could attest. I think that just upscaling the signal to HDMI would be more expensive than the whole console.

Anyway, great console.
