The new Master Systems and Mega Drives Tec Toy

This post is based on a response I wrote for a personal Mega Drive community on Orkut who were outraged by All of a sudden this post.

Unlike personal, I saw nothing wrong in the face of the post.

I have a Mega Drive III Tec Toy, and previously had a Sega Genesis that American did shit to sell.

The Mega Drive III is a Mega Drive, but does not have that same value for collector than the original version Island.

Likewise the new Master System also has no the same value, since even lost the 3D glasses entry.

Think cool Tec Toy continue selling these consoles, but I think these versions have lost their identity, changed color, in the case of Master System changed the joystick. Both have a slot for cartridge that almost exclusively serves ornament, unless you buy used games, since Tec Toy does not sell any more cartridge. Legal accessories Master System: pistola light phaser, 3D óculos, different joysticks, also gone.

Ultimately, have one of these consoles have the same value to a collector Polystation for a Nintendo collector. For those who do not know is that Polystation bizarre NES with Playstation design.

Ultimately, Tec Toy only keeps the islands to earn a little more on top of the parents who will buy the first game for the child, since delude themselves with the propaganda of the gazillion games in memory. Collector does not give money to Tec Toy (few) and sell accessories and cartridges gives even less.

And aí, alright!?
Good, first I appreciate the space and respect with the Act WRITING. You did the right thing. The lawful. As much as I'm against or favor, discussed in the blogosphere. Explained. Argued. This only brings benefits the discussion, so heated nonsense reasons.
We will update the note linking your opinion.
Thank you

Damn my comrade….. You go to the bottom line, crosses, run to the area, jumps and…….. HITS HIS HEAD ON THE CROSSBAR???? You were doing so well…..
Just to correct your article. Collector WINS YES money because selling accessories and cartridges gives a very good money and better, without leaving home…. e do Ebay ou Mercado Livre para minha casa e da minha casa via correios para a casa do comprador.
It…. menos blá blá blá e mais dados.
Um clássico como o Streets Of Rage 3 ou Bare Knuckle 3 como preferir não vendo por menos de 150 DÓLARES pois os jogos que negocio são realmente novos (os cartuchos não tem marca de uso). Outro clássico Comix Zone japonês não sai por menos de 300 DÓLARES e o raríssimo Mega Anser não sai por menos de 1300 DOLLARS…. (olha!!! o valor de um PS3 aqui no Brasil…. .que coisa hein?)
O problema é que ninguém entende a diferença entre apreciadores e colecionadores.
Esses dois consoles mesmo, daqui alguns anos valerão alguma coisa (desde que guardado com caixa, panfletos, plásticos, notas e etc)
