    Even in UK it was well publicised ... but it was pushed as you needed a "SCART TV". Games were marked down if they didn't compensate for 50Hz ... reviewers were well aware of it.

    Yeah, these are pretty amazing. Astro Force dev is taking feedback and improving his game, so I expect that the final entry will be much improved from the initial entry.

    Sonic 2 released in Brazil and South Korea (both 60Hz countries), so should run fine. First party games were generally designed for 60Hz (because they still run OK at 50Hz, not always the case the...

    They'll run at 60Hz. All of those games should run fine, it's generally just a few European third party games which have issues when run at 60Hz.

    I very much doubt it. It's most likely just programmed in a different way than most of the working MSX games.
