AtGames is a Chinese company, though you won't find it mentioned anywhere on there website. But it becomes apparent when you see how little information is given in English on their products. AtGames has been manufacturing a product that plays Sega Genesis cartriges since 2003 as far as I can tell, starting overseas, gaining an official Sega license along the way (around 2007 or so), and now they're bringing it in a offical launch in North America (though you could find them since 2009 in different forms). You'll see this same hardware called different names over the years (the Mega X-3, the Firecore system), but 2012 is one of the first times that AtGames has actually made more of a marketing push and started using somewhat professional packaging, including the Sega Genesis logo and a few actual game characters. They also have separate Genesis and Master System hendheld portable systems they've been selling for a few years now, each year getting slight revisions in what games were included, and what packaging was used.

THE PRODUCT: It may say "80 Games" on the packaging, but this is misleading, as you only get 40 Genesis game, and 40 self-published game that could best be discribed as homebrew games (think of the contents of Action 52 and you'll understand). The biggest complaint gamers have is that the EMULATION IS ONLY 90-95%! This is your standard console-on-a-chip, and you'll find the sound is often presented at the wrong hertz (listen to the Sonic the Hedgehog start-up music and any long-time fans will spot the "off-key" music, as it is sometimes called). Sonic himself also doesn't quite reach the speeds he normally does, though its close. Colors can often be off in areas as well. Some people may not notice these little differences, but for the hardcore its a deal-breaker.

First to answer the basic questions.

1. Does this play real Sega cartridges?
A. Yes

2. Can you hook up original/wired Sega controllers?
A. Yes

3. Is this a genuine Sega console?
A. No

4. What kind of console is this?
A. I wouldn't call it a real console. Its branded Sega but Chinese built so a Sega Genesis knock off. The GUI or "menu" displays the name "FIRECORE." No idea about what emulator is being used or any plugins.

5. What games does it come with?
A. It claims to come with 80 games, 40 16-bit Sega games and 40 "bonus" games. These 40 "bonus" games are home brew games which never were released on Sega. Home brew games, in general, are poorly designed and are usually puzzle games not worth mentioning or playing. Home brew games are usually created by individuals or small groups that can never compete with the big boys. The games worth mentioning in my opinion are, Alex The Kid, Alien Storm, Altered Beast, Comix Zone, Ecco, Ecco Jr., Ecco 2, Gain Ground, Golden Axe 1, 2 and 3, Mean Bean Machine, Ristar, Shadow Dance, Shinobi 3, Sonic 3D Blast, Sonic and Knuckles, Sonic Spinball, Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and 2, Streets of Rage 1, 2 and 3, The Ooze and Vectorman 1 and 2. All other games preloaded on this are either home brews or I personally never heard of them.

6. Any problems with any of the games or that is note worthy?
A. The only game so far I have had problems with is Golden Axe 2 and 3. Golden Axe 2 has problems recognizing my wired retro-bit controllers and it won't respond to the D-pad. Golden Axe 3 will not recognize both wireless controllers that are supplied with this product so no two-player on Golden Axe 3 unless you use other controllers.

I got this for my husband for Christmas and he was really excited about it until we turned it on. First, the wireless controls have to be unscrewed to put batteries and the screws strip easily. Once you get the batteries in, the controls do not work well at all - they have to be close to the box and pointed directly at it or it will not receive signal. The box has a place to plug in wired controllers but none of the ones we had worked with it.
The whole thing just seemed a bit slow on the response time, even of choosing the game you want to play, and ended up being a letdown with all the hassle. If you have a ps3 or a 360 I'd recommend the Sonic Ultimate Genesis Collection - for around $17 it has all the same games and works with a system that doesn't malfunction.

Verified Purchase
Edit: 10/6/2014 - I ended up returning this unit a week after I bought it. It stopped reading my sega genesis controllers, and I refuse to use the infra-red ones that come packed-in. I would file this under "too good to be true." Some units might work consistently (based on the reviews) but it seems to be VERY 50/50. As a result, I'm changing my previous rating from 2 stars to 1. Don't waste your time.

To break it down simply, let's start with pros and cons:
1) Composite video output is crisp and clean
2) My Sega Genesis controllers work
3) My Genesis cartridges work
4) Packed-in genesis games play as good as their physical counterparts

1) Infrared controllers
2) Sound is poor quality and wrong pitch

The cons greatly outweigh the pros, even though there are more "pros" than "cons."

The fact that they made these controllers infrared limits their usefulness - or more accurately, renders them useless - because IR requires a clear line of sight and is not exactly known for responsiveness. IR works great for TV remotes because reflexive and repetitive button pressing is not required for watching TV. They simply made the controllers IR to cut costs and say they have wireless controllers. It would have been just as cheap (and more reliable) if they'd packed in wired controllers. After reading the reviews, I didn't even bother with putting the batteries in...I simply know better.

The sound chip is tuned to the wrong frequency. For those less technically inclined, it means that everything (music and sound effects) play at a lower pitch than normal, like a cassette walkman when the batteries are low. It might play at the right tempo, but the pitch is distinctly lower.
