Product Description

Now presenting-the retro newly designed Dual Action 2-in-1 Video Game System that is compatible with both 16-bit graphics Sega Genesis game cartridges and 8-bit graphics NES game cartridges. The Dual Action 2-in-1 Video Game System has separate circuitry and card slots for both 16-bit Sega Genesis and 8-bit NES System, allowing it to play games for both consoles. It features a single-pole, double-throw power switch with open position; the switch can be thrown to 8-Bit (NES) or 16-Bit (GENESIS), or opened to Off. The Dual Action 2-in-1 Video Game System connects through an RCA connector, and can be hooked into a surround sound system. When using stereo and surround output from these systems, NES sounds and music may seem very different from their typical mono output. Using output modes that properly generate mono sound, either through a single center speaker or cloned to multiple speakers, the sound output sounds mostly identical to the original NES. Now you can enjoy both the NES and the Genesis retro games without looking to replace both of your broken gaming systems.

Got one of these the other day.
Gamepads are responsive and are similar to the newer genesis 6 button pads.
I can only recommend this system as a affordable genesis/mega drive replacement.

The NES portion seems problematic.
Which unfortunately was the main reason i purchased this.
Just like the original old front loading NES,some games need to be reseated a few times to work.
While others seem to work on the first boot.
I even cleaned my cartridges prior to using the system,to avoid the possibility of dirty contacts.

Also dragon warrior 2 doesn't work,i suspect the same games that don't work on the FC Twin and the YOBO NES may be the case with this one also.

Some other gripes i have with the system
Build quality is cheap.
The small foot print and lightness of the system makes cartridge removal a pain.
You have to pick up the system to remove NES carts.

Gamepad cords could be about 2 feet longer and could be slightly bigger.

NES sound playback has line noise from the power supply.

After addional play testing
I found some genesis games actually slow down and speed up while playing.
Poor emulation or the processor isnt up to snuff.

Ignore my original 3 star rating.
If you can find a used genesis cheap,you may be beter off.

as stated by others - plays sega games great -- nes games are another story. probably about 1/2 the nes games work with some effort. i ended up buying a old nes system which works flawlessly. controllers are a little cheap with this system and it is hard to put the games in and out without feeling like you may break something.

I bought this strictly for the Sega side. I have yet to try the NES part.
The video has a subtle wavy pattern to it.

It doesn't show up so much on a small analog TV, but if you plug it into
a newer digital TV, it gets wavy. My original Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 don't
have the wavy issues.

Also the sound is just plain horrible. It crackles like a cheap stereo. I have tried
this system on several TVs and always the same thing.

I didn't think NHL 94 beats could get worse, but on this system it hurts your ears.

I did like the controllers. We have a lot of NHL 94 tourneys and everyone likes
to play with these controllers. These controllers will not fit the regular Sega.
They shaped them differently.

Both controllers for this system failed (D Pad broke off in unfixable manner) in less than a year and I cannot purchase new ones online either from amazon or hyperkin. This system works to play sega games and the controller looks like a sega genesis controller but a sega genesis controller cannot fit in the system's controller port. Im going back to my policy of not buying 3rd party crap for my video gaming enjoyment.

Game console forces you to use the supplied controllers, which means you can NOT play certain games such as Duck Hunt. You can't connect the Light Zapper. This would be better if you could use your own controllers, but you can't!

I love this console, brings back many memories of playing sonic and Mario xD nostalgic! The only problem I see with it is the amount of heat it gives off when I'm playing it! I pull the game out and think it's burned the game! I'm surprised smoke doesn't come out of it! But what ever! XD

Hi gamers ive seen these 2 in 1s or 3 in 1s game systems that enables you to play the nes, snes, and the sega genesis games however there is a lot of flaws to these consoles first off they are not developed or have any endorsement from nintendo or sega, thats why some of the games such as castlevania 3, and super mario rpg can't be played on these consoles, second the controls are scrambled because the nintendo consoles usually have b and a but the sega consoles go the other way so this can be confusing figuring out the controls for you favorite games, and finally the last flaw these consoles break easy just read the other customer reviews and the ratings its really bad im sorry but if your looking for consoles to play these games stick to the original nes or top loader nes, the super nes, and any of the 3 model genesis instead of this piece of junk.

My husband bought this gift for his video game loving Grandma and when it came it didn't work. We were also unaware that a special adapter needed to be bought to play the sega games. I am not planning on buying this ever again.
