If you haven't run into it yet, the Sega Mg is a $190 FPGA powered device with can play any any region's Genesis or Mega Drive cartridges, and has a connector for the Sega CD adapter if you happen to own one of those.  If you have the Genesis 32X add-on or a light gun you are out of luck as compatibility for those has not yet been developed, but overall it is an impressive mating of 30 year old technology with modern displays.  There are some interesting compromises made to display ancient titles at 1080p but overall from what The Tech Report has seen this is at least as good as the best emulators out there, if not better.

"Analogue's Sega clone was originally scheduled to ship this month, but it ended up releasing early, on March 25. My personal unit shipped even earlier than that, on the 22nd. There seems to be plenty of demand for the Mega Sg, since as of this writing, Analogue's store says new orders will ship in two to three weeks."
