Quick explanation if you care: Spoiler Okay, so I'm struggling to decipher all this. I recently got a framemeister (powerful retro upscaler) which helps with NTSC consoles such as the Mega Drive. It also accepts PAL which works perfectly. As we all know, PAL runs roughly 17% slower so games such as Sonic feels slow and floaty. Luckily the Asian Mega Drive I have was modded for 60Hz, although the framemeister does not like PAL going at 60Hz. It works for the most part but it stutters, and sometimes, it freaks out completely with weird colours then loses signal. Apparently, this is normal for modded PAL consoles to run at 60Hz. So I have to stick with it at 50Hz for it to work. But I want that 60 fps goodness. Looks like I have to get an NTSC console. Before you suggest it, a Sega Genesis is out of the question. There seems to be none whatsoever in the UK or in Europe so I have to import it from the USA/Canada themselves. They go for like £150 and that's not even considering the shipping price and then the import tax I may have to pay. Japanese consoles are similar, mostly from Japan, huge price, import tax, but there are a few from Europe (saves import tax) and some in the UK. However, would I really be buying a Japanese console? Or am I going to get tricked into owning another Asian console? I was first intrigued by this console on ebay. Looks like a genuine Japanese console, until I saw that the box has "PAL-I" on top of the flap. Guh, I asked the seller to send me the back of the console, which he replied with this. I always thought HAA-2510 were NTSC consoles but this says otherwise. So my search continued. I found many obvious Asian consoles (because the back of the MD had a different model number and literally said "PAL-I") so I disregarded them, but I found a few that people were claiming they were Japanese consoles and run in 60Hz (with the model number being HAA-2510). This one for example. I even messaged the seller and he said he's tested it, it's un-modded, and it runs in 60Hz. Possibly PAL-60? I'm not sure? But here's the kicker. Here's one that's also HAA-2510 but it's an NTSC model. No sign on PAL on the box or console. Too expensive though. So, my question is, is the HAA-2510 Japanese or Asian? And if it's Asian, is it PAL or NTSC? I've heard with Asian consoles it could be either. But I'm getting a lot of mixed signals here. And Googling for an answer isn't helping. As long as I get an actual NTSC console, I'm good to go! Thanks for the advice, guys!
