The 16-Bit Genesis Bag

Here’s a bag I’d sport proudly in public. It’s designed like SEGA’s 16-bit Mega Drive system, aka the Genesis here in the states. Sometimes you’ve got no choice but to pick sides in a console war. Too bad you can’t get this $55 dollar bag in a Nintendo flavor. SEGA fans only, please. Link [via]
