    Sounds like you fixed the hardware problem, then. Now you've got some kind of software issue with Windows.

    Whoa~ If you are not tech-savvy, I'd be careful about opening up that PSU. Those capacitors can hold a a nice surprise (they're dangerous!).

    They're charging $20 to ship a small package within the US? Ouch. I don't know how that can be justified.

    I can kind of get their need to combine these into one order: Almost nobody is going to...

    You only live once! Give it a try and if you mess up - oh well, you're just out some money. But if you succeed then you have learned a new skill and all that comes with it.

    But the MSX was a success in Japan and its output was usually composite or RF. Sega's SC-3000 computer's output was also composite and RF. I don't know anything about it but didn't the Commodore 64...

    Sega didn't announce the Power Base Converter until after the Mega Drive had launched, so it's not really clear what their intentions were.

    The SFC was first unveiled in November 1988, less than a month after the Mega Drive was released. Nintendo announced a release date of July 1989.

    The revenue figures I provided are for both Sega's arcade operations (meaning the arcades they run) and the sales of their games to arcades. Their arcades were mostly in Japan, though.

    But the two...

    I think the disagreement here comes down to each of you having different subjective experiences in your local arcades. But that's probably not a good indicator of the health of the arcade industry.

    That graph is meant to represent worldwide figures (I think), so it includes places like Japan where arcades were very strong through the end of the 90s.

    But honestly, what is the source of that...

    I knew I missed a few.

    OK. I'm guessing "half scale" doesn't make good marketing language so they inflate it a bit.

    I use the language "alive and healthy" to counter claims that Sega discontinued development and promotion of the Genesis in 1994 or 1995 (or whatever the particular claim might be). The Genesis sold...

    Ms Pac Man was one of those budget titles that sold for $20 or less and was always selling high. Majesco even re-released it at some point.

    Are these actually 3/4 scale? All the pictures I've seen make them look half the size of an original cab.

    Right. Initially, with how much Sega was losing on each unit sold, they had to sell something like 5 games per console to break even. That only got worse as they dropped price, although eventually...

    Number of games on Top 25 list:

    SNES: 5

    Just imagine if Sega had known that the Saturn would be selling for $299 right after launch in Oct 1995, or $249 in March 1996, or $200 in May 1996. In the end, the whole concern about price came to...

    Well, as I've often said, the evidence strongly indicates that Saturn was not meant to launch in the US in 1995. It's all connected to the 32X. If you consider what the 32X was meant to be, rather...

    Regardless of this TA nonsense, let's be clear: Kalinske's account is kind of odd. Not "lying" odd, but more "clueless" or "naive" odd.
