The Sega Mega Drive Mini is one of the absolute best classic all-in-one retro consoles on the market today, coming with over 40 awesome games pre-installed, as well as two controllers out of the box for fun multiplayer action. For retro gamers, we think it is the Christmas gift to give this winter holiday season.

Which is why when we saw that The Game Collection has got the Sega Mega Drive Mini listed for just £54.95 right now, which is almost a tenner cheaper than even Amazon has it available for, we knew we had to bring it to our readers' attentions.

That's a truly great price on the console and, in our opinion, a must-see gaming deal. The full details of the offer can be viewed below:
