    ‚ÄúNSO Expansion Pack‚ÄĚ.

    Jeez. At this point, wouldn’t it make more sense to just sell them a la carte or via (also physical) compilation releases?

    Also, you get far more games and bang for your buck with the existing (and unfortunately discontinued) Sega Mega Drive compilation release.

    Hmm… If it’s a significant hike, I’m gonna have to pass.
    The only one I had my eye on was Sin and Punishment, but that’s already on my Wii U.
