Curiosity of the day: Sega's Mega Jet

I remember reading about this sweet, semi-portable system in the pages of DieHard GameFan magazine back in the day.

Although initially produced for the folks at Japan Airlines, who rented the systems to game-starved passengers, the Mega Jet eventually (in early 1994) made its way into the public sphere, too--with a rather attractive price tag of about $123.


I'd actually buy one if I could find it at that price. (I'm a total sucker for small, 16-bit systems, after all--as evidenced by my many PC Engine posts.) Unfortunately, the cheapest the system is going for on eBay right now is $335. (Here's the auction, in case any of you are interested.)

Oh, well, maybe I'll buy a CDX instead...

Nice. How strange that it's been around so long and I've never heard of it...

I don't think it got much press, Justin. I'm guessing I read about it in Mega Play or Super Play (EGM spin-offs) or some other obscure mag...
