    Sega Genesis Classic Collection: Gold Edition

    Sega re-released all four physically released volumes as the Sega Genesis Classic Collection: Gold Edition (Sega Mega Drive Classic Collection: Gold Edition in Europe), for Windows in North America and Europe on March 15, 2011. It is a four-disc set of the forty-six Genesis/Mega Drive games from the first four volumes. The collection has configuring keyboard support which provides a personalized gaming experience, as well as a multiplayer mode for a select number of titles. The collection also has save and load functionality that is included in all of the games that allows the player to pick up and play saved games at the exact point they left off.

    Sega Genesis Classics Hub

    Sega released a free application on Steam on April 28, 2016, called the Sega Genesis Classics Hub (Sega Mega Drive Classics Hub in Europe). The application presents a virtual hub, themed after what a bedroom of a Sega fanatic might be like, to play all of the released Sega Genesis games through it. This will enable these games to have Steam Workshop support, supporting ROM hacks for these games; within a day of its release, previously developed ROM hacks were added by users to the Hub's Workshop. Sega states that players that have already purchased Sega Genesis games receive them for free for use in the Hub. A few weeks following the release of the Hub, Sega reported more than 350,000 new purchases of the various games supported by the new software.
