The Mega Drive Mini Is A Console Worthy Of The Sega Name

The SEGA Mega Drive Mini isn't the first time a mini SEGA console has gone on the market, but it's the first one that's worth your money.

    I don’t want to be that guy... but your terms and conditions say in point 11 that the winner isn’t random (and you also have 2 point 11’s)
    Actuallly totally wanted to point it out!

      Actually, there's not "a little catch", there's quite a big one, and it's misleading to imply that the only thing you need to do is "take our short survey ... to be in the running to win a next-level prize".

      In fact, this is one of those stupid '50 words or less' style response competitions in which "chance plays no part in determining the winner" and where "all entries will be judged individually on their merits based on the Judging Criteria", specifically "originality, creativity, humour and entertainment level".

      So... I have to come up with something witty and amusing to win, which I most certainly am not at all inspired to do at the moment, and particularly not for a tiny chance of winning something, so... no thanks, but I think I'll sit this one out.

        Yep it’s not a good competition format if they want to maximize their survey responses but meh their call..

        Making it a game of skill is just to get around having to obtain permits in every state that requires one to run a game of chance (considered a lottery).

        I'm sure even if you write something lousy your chance of winning will be just as good.

          Yeah, the 25/50 words or less is a requirement mandated by state liquor/gambling authorities. You have to take out a paid permit and jump through a whole other bunch of hoops otherwise, because it's then determined as "a game of chance" and you're treated like you're running online pokies.

            That's why you have a skill question. (yes I know this is an old comment).

            "Which company made the switch console."

    Travel needs a "I don't travel" option

    I’ll take your survey. Only because I have nothing better to do. : (

    Current employment status needs a 'Retired' option. Retirees dont have a job, just an income source, but they really arent unemployed either.

      That's a good point! I'll pass the feedback on.

        I ended up just putting self employed down. Seemed the best middle ground.

        I went with umemployed because I'm on a carer's pension. It's kind of a full time job though

    Can I just get 7.5k in cash instead of the 3 hour catamaran cruise?

      Straight up cash prizes have a whole different set of regulations in NSW although it's dependent on how much is being given away AFAIK. Been a bit since I've looked into it.

      I mean, who has 24 friends?

        It would just have to be a romantic cruise for me and the wife...but I live in Melbourne, so just give me the projector. Projector would be great to have when 24 friends come over to watch the footy...but I don't have 24 friends and I don't like footy.

        Friends seem like hard work!

        If you win you could throw it open to 24 other Kotaku readers. Meet up!

        It'd cost me and my friends more to GET to Sydney combined than the prize is worth. :P

    glad i read the comments. pass.

    The survey is completely banal and had me tearing my hair out at times but I completed the damn thing anyway because I'm hungry and poor.

    I did the survey but it was largely irrelevant for me personally, especially when 75% of the survey was about fashion and travel.

      Me: "I give zero fucks about cosmetics and fashion."
      Survey: "Oh. Well. The next sixty questions aren't gonna be super relevant to you, then..."
      Me: "Probably not."
      Survey: "Oh well. Let's do it anyway! So how much weight do you give to influencers?"
      Me: "I consider them an unpleasant and aggressive form of personality cancer."
      Survey: "Cool! Let's both just keep pretending we're going to get something out of this for a little while longer."

        They should have had the question "Have you traveled in the last 6 months?" if you said no it should have skipped all the travel related questions.

      Man you said it.
      Some of those questions made it sound like people consider their fashion choices investments. Way to make people feel good about spend $1,500+ of a handbag and only taking it out 4 Sundays during summer and the rest of the time it sits on a shelf being dusted and kept in pristine condition.

    Thanks for putting this competition up but this survey is terrible. 10 mins in and still asking about fashion, I didn't even select fashion as an interest... . Had to Quit out coz I gotta go back to work.

    Question 19 says Select All That Apply and then only lets you choose one option

    What's an investment piece? I think I invested in buying my mobile phone, but I think they are talking about something else.

    After a dozen questions regarding clothing and grooming I decided that the annoyance wasn't worth completing the rest.

    Done and done! It's interesting doing these surveys and thinking about decisions you usually just make on autopilot.

    Considering the prizes on offer, I expected the questions to be about technology, gaming and gadgets. Instead the questions were about fashion, cosmetics and travel.

    If I say I don't care about fashion and generally only buy new clothes to replace old ones, I shouldn't then be asked another 30 questions about fashion.
