Sega has announced that sales for the SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis Hub have passed the 350,000 mark on Steam. Since its launch on April 28th, 2016, almost half a million Mega Drive and Genesis titles have been purchased by Steam members worldwide, the highest point since the 90’s when the two consoles were all the rage.
“350,000 sales is a phenomenal achievement for content which is over 20 years old!” said James Schall, Director of Digital Distribution for SEGA Europe. “It shows that there’s still a huge following out for the SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis, reinvigorated by the fantastic community of modders out there uploading great content.”
The modding scene is also proving to be a success with hundreds of custom ROMS being uploaded by the community since the games launch.
The SEGA Mega Drive and Genesis Hub Packs are currently available for £5.50 each on Steam.
