Mega Sg FAQ

What happens when I pre-order a Mega Sg?

Pre-ordering a Mega Sg will reserve your place in line for when shipping begins. The full amount of your order total will be processed and charged when you place your pre-order. We accept pre-order cancellations at any time.

Is Mega Sg and every system it supports 100% FPGA or is software emulation being used, too?

Every system Mega Sg supports is implemented 100% in FPGA. Each system is designed totally in house by Kevin 'Kevtris' Horton. Mega Sg does not use any software emulation.

Does 8BitDo's M30 wireless controller have any lag?

No - we worked very hard to make sure that the wireless controller does not have any lag -- it operates even better than a bluetooth controller (2.4g).

Does Mega Sg have any video lag?

Mega Sg is designed with an FPGA. Unlike software emulation, an FPGA based system produces zero inherent video lag because it isn't a computer and there is no OS. All of the hardware runs in parallel.

Does Mega Sg support Sega Master System cartridges? What about Sega Cards?

Mega Sg includes a Sega Master System cartridge adapter in the box. The included cartridge adapter supports Sega Master System game cartridges only. It does not support Sega Cards, MyCards, or Mark III games. We will be releasing more cartridge adapters to support these formats next year, post Mega Sg launch.

Can I use 32x with Mega Sg?
