Imagine that it is a gift giving occasion and the request is for a Sega Genesis. You will want to get the best possible price for that gift, plus keep in mind that it is one of the never ending gift types. It is one of those gifts that have accessories and other items that you continually need to buy. The best and hottest game right now is not going to be that hot in five days from now- especially in the world of kids. Once they beat a game, they no longer want to play it.
To avoid getting ripped off, you have to find a good resource for all of your electronic needs, new and used. You will want to have a place that offers a warranty, preferably one that lasts more than a week or so. While you might be tempted to buy a gaming system at a local yard sale or other secondhand sale, but you are playing with the odds- the lower the price on the system, the more likely that the system is broken or missing valuable parts.
When you buy your system, remember that you have to have controllers to use with it. Before you finalize your purchase, make sure that you understand what is coming with the item in the package and what you need to buy as a secondary purchase. Certain games are single player or have that option, while others are multi player. If there is more than one child in the family or you have plans to play certain games, you will need two controllers.
There are other options that you need to keep in mind as well- including accessories for other games that make them seem even more realistic than others. It doesn’t matter how many accessories or games you have, though, you have to understand how the game works. You should also know what kind of games that you need to buy for your system. The greatest game in the world may be in your hands, but if it is not compatible with your system, it is going to have to stay in your hands.
In addition to making sure that your game has all of the protection and options that you need it to have, you also need to make sure that you are putting it where it will be protected from elements but still easy to hook up whenever it is time to play with the Sega Genesis. - Craig Thornburrow
