    Ahhh, the LaserActive. It's a good value machine for retrogame enthusiasts. With the right plug-in cards, it's capable of playing Sega Genesis, SegaCD and PCEngine games, as well as LaserActive games.

    I have a friend who is a big fan of them.

    Ok, I'm officially freaked out right now. That thing is even more surreal than Amstrad's combination PC/Genesis machine (in which the whole Sega side was completely seperate, rather than using emulation or anything). And you could get a PC Engine adaptor as well? Groovy! I always meant to get a cheap Engine, but they never did become that cheap (probably due to never being released in the UK).

    Amusingly, I was actually within a hair's breadth of splashing out for an Engine in about '88, but preferred the DMA classic Menace on the Amiga to Engine R-Type, as I hated the vertical scrolling change (the Engine couldn't fit the full height on screen at once). A couple of years later when everyone had Amigas and the Engine was still some mythic beast it seemed a curious decision, I must say...

    As it comes with the Genesis pack & joypad, yup, he got a pretty good deal.
