SEGA's awesome Mega Drive classics hub

Old Mega Drive games were already awesome, but SEGA has just reached maximum nineties nostalgia with its latest creation, the Sega Mega Drive Classics Hub. Get ready to have your nineties bedroom back...

SEGA's new-look system allows you to play Mega Drive games on a PC, but in a bedroom of an early nineties SEGA fan. Sounds a bit mad right? But give it a chance.

The room has dynamic time-of-day conditions, so you get a day and night cycle. It's also full of retro SEGA paraphernalia, a shelf full of Mega Drive games (including the ones that you own) and of course an old-school, box-shaped, CRT TV.

It's not all window dressing either. You can even mod and share games using Steam Workshop. Check out the trailer below.

The SEGA Mega Drive hub also includes, top-notch emulation, local co-op, optional graphic enhancement filters, full controller and keyboard support, and best of all, the ability to save at any point in the game. No more having to complete a game hit, unless you want to of course.

The hub releasing as a free update on Steam, so if you don't have a steam account, you might want to get one. It launches April 28th.
