Still got my mega drive and it's still in the original box. I don't recall Street Fighter 2 being a problem with the normal 3 button pad. I have a megafire pad that made it very easy to do the button mashing moves for blanka, e.honda and chun li
It wasn't as good as the six-button pad - which was designed and launched specifically for SFII - 'cos you had to switch between punches and kicks, whereas the six-button pad replicated the arcade controls (three punch buttons, three kick buttons.)
Not a problem if you're playing as Mike Tyson - sorry, M. Bison, which would become Balrog so as not to get Capcom sued - of course!
Question is, are there different games on it than the ones already released on the "Mega Drive Collection" for current gen consoles?
If it's the same games, it's going to be a tough sell unless you really want to play using a Mega Drive controller.
Even that isn't a problem:
Would love a Saturn and Dreamcast classic. Especially as most of the awesome games on them were missed the first time around.
I do love my Sega consoles, I had when growing up.
Sega Master System 1 with the secret Snail Maze game.
Sega Master System 2 with Alex The Kid built in. (Damn I spent many hrs playing that!)
Sega Mega Drive 2 - Sonic 2
Sega Mega CD 2 - Road Avengers, Sonic CD, and Texas ground zero
Sega 32X - Virtual Fighter
Sega Saturn - Virtual Cop, Sega Rally, Daytona USA, Nights
Sega Dreamcast - Crazy Taxi, Sonic Adventure, Shenmue
Powerstone on Dreamcast is an absolute must have if they ever release a dreamcast mini.
I was sure that Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition wouldn't be in the games list, 'cos why on Earth would they include three-button pads if it was?
Turns out it is in the games list, and the answer to "why on Earth would they include three-button pads" is "because they're selling the six-button pads as optional extras, £17.99 each." Cheeky buggers.
