Gift a nostalgic gamer the SEGA Genesis Mini at nearly 50% off via Amazon

Black Friday is the best time of the year to pick up some of the year's best product releases at a discount. This SEGA Genesis Mini console (opens in new tab) was unveiled earlier this year, and thanks to Black Friday, you can score the first major discount on it since its release. Today it's down to just $44.99 at Amazon, saving you nearly 50% off its regular cost of $80. This deal looks to be a price-match of a one-day sale at GameStop (opens in new tab), so it's possible that the deal at Amazon won't be around come tomorrow either.

Packed with 42 legendary games, this SEGA Genesis Mini is perfect for the old-school gamer who's fiending for a rush of nostalgia this holiday season. It comes with two wired controllers and all the cords you'll need to set it up at a new low price.
