Useless trivia of the day:

There are tiny evolutions in European Mega Drive II packaging. Ignore the differing pack-in stuff - we don't have that many images yet.

mid-1993 (white start buttons)

late 1993 (red start buttons and miscoloured Finnish subheading)

mid-1995

late-1996



Obviously the key giveaway is the list of advertised games, but now you can identify a console's year based on where the letters of "video game console" intersect with the grid. Because you'll want to do that - it's an important life skill.

Maybe not common knowledge, but I certainly knew that first one - my MD2 was the Sonic 2 pack-in with white start buttons :)
