Oh good, I get to ask you two questions, and both are related to the content of this thread with that last post :P 1) In the April 1994 issue of Game Players, there is a small picture that purports to be the "Japanese version of the Sega Channel hardware". Have you ever seen this picture? It appears to look almost like a hybrid inbetween the short and tall US adapters, and the label simply has the standard S1-style Sonic artwork on the right, with the standard blue SEGA logo to the left and what appears to be a button directly below the bottom-right hand corner of the label. It also looks like there's a couple of demo screenshots (which appear like they might be from demo #4 cart, which I really really really need to send back to Skrybe, I've been so busy and without a vehicle at the moment it's a pain in the ass to get to the post office). 2) In the April 1995 issue of Game Players, there is an interesting shot of what possibly appears to be early Satellaview hardware. It shows a Data Pak that looks like it has 6 pins coming out the bottom (and the shape looks sort of like a PS1 memory card, with the curved portion being at the connector end), a BS-X BIOS cart that looks absolutely nothing like the final hardware (in fact, I don't even see the little "slot" that SNES and SFC carts have, that the power switch slides a piece of plastic into to "lock" the cart in). The Satellaview hardware itself looks really weird, it doesn't have an EXT port connector on top, it appears to have a raise "Nintendo SATELLAVIEW" badge on the left, and two completely different looking lights where the Power and Access lights are. These look like rescans by GP, so the quality isn't that great (there are also pictures of the final hardware, and they are heavily halftoned on top of the magazine's "native" halftone screen). Have you seen anything like these pics? If neither of these pics have been seen, I will be happy in the next few days to dig out my flatbed and scan them.
