Hi Retro, long time no see! A bit of background - I'm based in Europe, and I'm looking to potentially own a Mega Drive once again. Thing is, I'm relatively clueless as to the best way to go about this! I'm hoping to collect original software where I can, so please consider that. So far, I've come up with the following options: Buying a PAL Mega Drive Buying an NTSC Mega Drive Buying something like Analogue's Mega SG Something I never considered was the fact that apparently PAL hardware runs slower than NTSC? This is something I never noticed as a kid, but I think I'd find it pretty jarring now after so many years playing things over emulators and re-releases. If I was to go for original hardware, is there a preferred model of the Mega Drive to go for? Though I'm unfamiliar with them, I'd probably like to option to add on Mega CD / 32X in the future, and I believe there's some Mega Drives that aren't compatible. With imported consoles / Mega SG, I'll also need to consider the cost of import fees / shipping. of course. I realise there's a difference between "optimum" in terms of the absolute most high-quality experience available, compared to the best cost-effective solution, and if there are any other suggestions I'd be welcome to hear them, Can some of you guys help me with defogging the options available to me? I'd like to know what the highest-quality compared to cost option is, as well as the best overall, so I can compare features vs. cost. I also thought this would be a good discussion in general, and might help others out who are looking to get into hardware to find something that fits their needs. Thanks a lot!
