    It is indeed a beautiful thing. I only have a model 2 right now. I also want a Model 1 pretty badly.

    That is the nicest Genesis I have ever seen; it's P-R-I-S-T-I-N-E. I think I have a tear in my eye.

    And Melf, I'm a fairly modest collector, and even I have all three models of Genesis

    then you should see my NES, SNES, PS2, XBOX, Dreamcast, Laserdisc player, FC Twin, the non-metal scraped parts of my Sega CD, 32X, Wii, every computer I've ever had, all of my controllers, etc. etc. The only stuff that ever got beat up was handhelds, and that usually wasn't my fault (in many cases because they were acquired used, especially the PSP, its gotta be pretty messed up for the UMD not to work, but for $45 and 100% functionality, its good enough for me). I'm not kidding when I say I probably clean my used purchases more thoroughly than just about anyone out there.

    I'm very lazy with my consoles myself. And most of my genesis equipment is used, with the exception of my Genesis 3 which, upon closer inspection, is in pretty good shape and would polish up nicely.

    My games tend to stay in the condition I received them, so if I got them in great shape (or new), they stay that way. I treat my stuff nice, but am not very anal about cleaning them. Poor neglected Genny...

    Many of them were, but the XBOX, Dreamcast, Sega CD, 32X, Laserdisc player, and both Genesis...isisisis were not. I'm also very picky when buying video game systems since those will have problems long before the games will. No use buying a worn out system when you can buy a much better one 2 weeks later at the same price. Of course there will always be those scratches you just can't get rid of, but most used systems just need to be cleaned to look like new.

    That is pretty. I never thought about collecting pristine consoles. Although I doubt I'd trade all mint model 1s for my late version model 1 I received back in 5th grade.

I also kind of want to have the authentic ~1990 (its a TMSS model) experience because, well, no one used A/V back then. Even with RF the picture is still stunning and hearing the sound on my dad's old stereo headphones (as seen in the picture) is mind blowing.
    Probably no one's going to listen to me when I say this, but when I first heard the Genesis with A/V cables, I thought something was wrong with the sound! I didn't like it as much. I was very used to the somewhat muddier and deeper (?) sound of RF. To this day I'm not quite sure which I like more, but I keep it plugged into A/V because of the superior picture quality. (It's plenty good to me, and I doubt I would like it with component or s-video or RGB or whatever).

    Seriously, if you have a model 1 and don't plug in some headphones every once in a while you are doing yourself a big disservice.
    Totally agreed! The Genesis sounds so much better that way and it's a shame the thing didn't originally output in stereo.

    lol, remember, that's a REALLY old post, this thread is from quite a while back, I've long since started using A/V cables for it and never looked back. High Def+headphones+A/V picture=better than XBOX 360 for sure.

    The Mega Drive was far inferior to the NES in terms of diffusion rate and sales in the Japanese market, though there were ardent Sega users. But in the US and Europe, we knew Sega could challenge Nintendo. We aimed at dominating those markets, hiring experienced staff for our overseas department in Japan, and revitalising Sega of America and the ailing Virgin group in Europe.

    Then we set about developing killer games.

    I release my photo under GFDL.

    If I need to say anything else, let me know, or if I have to, I'll upload it myself. USE THE PICTURE WIKIPEDIA! THAT'S WHY I TOOK IT!

    I also give permission for any non-profit use of the photo (Genesis FAQs, etc.)

    oh, and just as an interest sampler: I'll be giving a touch up cleaning to all of my systems before they go into storage when I move to NYC (I won't have room for my collection, at least not at first), would anyone like me to take pictures of my other systems in a similar fashion? I have: NES, SNES, FC Twin, Genesis 1 and 2, 32X, Sega CD model 2, PS2 Fat, Dreamcast (regular and Sega Sports), Saturn, XBOX, N64, Game Gear, Gameboy (original), N-Gage QD (RayR DaWG!), PSX (SCPH-1001), Sega Master System, Pioneer Laserdisc CLD-V2800 (not a game system, but whateva), X-Arcade Joystick, Namco ?Tekken? joystick, Logitech Driving Force Pro Steering Wheel, PSP 1000 and 2000, etc. etc.
