London-based electronic music label Hyperdub has released a limited-edition album on a Sega Genesis cassette with Analogue, a manufacturer of video game hardware, to celebrate its 15th anniversary.

Each order includes the console, an 8BitDo M30 gamepad, the Hyperdub album cartridge, a hyperdub lucky-guy keychain, and cables and a power adapter. They should be available immediately. So if you want to make sure you get one (the Ghostly International issue is sold out), order it from Analogue.
