The Gen-X Dual Station console is a hybrid device that allows you to enjoy the best of both 8- and 16-bit video games, particularly titles on the NES and Sega Genesis platforms. You get a couple of slots that support original cartridges from either system, including Japanese titles. Great for those who have a huge collection of carts but have no idea where to put them. Each $36.89 purchase comes with a pair of controllers and A/V cables. I sometimes wonder why you would want to pick something like this up since the Wii's Virtual Console is capable of handling games from both the NES and Sega Genesis platforms among numerous others. Of course, if you can't wait for Nintendo to officially release the titles on either consoles that you really want to play, the Gen-X Dual Station acts as a temporary stop-gap measure.
