Thread: Just bought a new Megadrive. Real or fake?

  1. #1

    Default Just bought a new Megadrive. Real or fake?

    Got it off ebay. From Thailand. Seller has 99.8% positive feedback.

    Both controller and console feel lighter and of poorer build quality but it could be my mind playing tricks on me.

    If someone knowledgeable enough could shed some light on the subject. Here are some pics:

    P.S. Don't forget this is a new console. Supposedly been in a warehouse for 11 or so years.

    It's real, it's just an Asian one. Infact the Motherboard model VA0 is the same as my American Genesis 2. Just be warned VA0 MD/Genesis 2's have the worst video and sound quality. However the Sound Quality can be improved with a modification.

    Yeah, that a real one, a mega-drive 2, I used to have one in the form of a genesis they were much lighter than the original model 1 which I owned aswell.

    I dident really see much of a difference between both models.

    congrats on your purchase, she's a beaut!
