    Yup. I wanted a PC big time in 1991. It was too rich for my blood at the time. But I bought a Sega Genesis, and several strategy games. It was even weird at the time that you could play some games...

    If you look again at the front artwork you'll see some differences as well. Check the lettering 'The Revenge Of' on both boxes. Also, the positioning of Shinobi's head against the enemy in the...

    I'm surprised someone didn't try doing something like this with their 'nick name'.

    This is just a guess, but it could there may have been some question about the validity of having to use a '1' in the distribution area. Normally '1' is the long distance code for North America,...

    That might have something to do with the fact that Sega was using Irwin Toys to distribute the consoles & games in the first few years.
