Brazil's TecToy cranks out Mega Drive Portable handheld

While Sega's Nomad handheld didn't exactly take off, Brazil's TecToy nonetheless looks to be ready to take its own shot at a portable Genesis console, although it's new "Mega Drive Portable" appears to be decidedly more limited than Sega's offering.

If its anything like the other GOAC (Genesis on a chip) Devices made by TecToy (and other more dodgy device makers) then it shouldn't be too hard to hack the circuit and add a full blown cart port. They usually have a soldered ROM that contains all the games, if you desolder this rom and replace the lines with a cart port thats usually the ticket. I bet Ben Heck is drooling over this one! ;)


I don't like TecToy... They have the rights to produce SEGA consoles, but they quit DreamCast as soon as they can, and go produce cheap old 8 bit and 16 bit consoles in a new case... So, when my DreamCast have broken, and I need they to cover the warranty they have "skiped the production of this videogame" (some hardware components was needed to fix it). I feel alone out there in the rain... They are a famous toy factor in Brazil, but they sh!t on videogames after the Mega Drive/Genesis...
