I remember back in the days where Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Ghostbusters were all the rage – and this new fangled toy known as video games ruled living rooms, never mind that their graphics were positively awful in comparison to today’s realistic renderings. Well, Nintendo and Sega duked it out pretty hard, with Sega having the upper hand in terms of advertisements many a time, but Nintendo’s mainstay followers did well enough to keep them in contention. To see a Sega character on a Nintendo console? That’s like waiting for pigs to fly, or a blue moon, or an Intel processor running on a Mac…wait a minute, since the last bit has been done some time ago, does this mean it is now possible to have a blue Sega-themed Nintendo Wii?
The answer to that is a resounding “Yes!!”, where Nintendo decided to cross the sacred line with a good enough reason – after all, both Mario and Sonic will be competing at the London 2012 Olympic Games bundle, so the new Wii included is slightly gimped by the fact that it lacks Wi-Fi connectivity and cannot play Gamecube titles, but it still is the perfect gaming gift for those who have yet to find out how much fun a Wii is. Europe will be getting this strange lovechild from November 18th onwards.
