    Just read a fascinating interview conducted with one of the developers who works in a Sega studio devoted to porting classic games to other platforms, namely the Nintendo eShop. They recently ported the original Genesis/MegaDrive Sonic the Hedgehog to the 3DS as an eShop title in 3D. This is actually quite interesting.

    To the effect of this topic's title, they had to create a theorhetical upgraded Genesis/MegaDrive, which they named Sega GigaDrive in ordet to both port Sonic and make it 3D. Well worth the read.? :yep:
