    For me it would have to be the US SNES. I had the UK and Jap ones as well but the US one was different. Although my Super Wild Card DX didn't fit as well on the US model

    What (other than the obvious) was different on the US one? The Pads were different I remember, the buttons were different making it more difficult to rub them as fast as you could on games that required it.

    They were the same. Just different colors on the buttons (I think). It was a long time ago so I could be wrong lmao

    The pads were different. The US ones had a mix of concave and convex buttons, the EU ones were all convex.

    UK Megadrive, best console at the time because...........................its what i had!
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Megadrive had the advantage of been available in the UK nearly two years before the SNES.
    I remember going to the local independent Games Store wanking over the Jap SNES and thinking I would never be able to get one..
    I also remember wanking over games on the USA Megadrive (Rolling Thunder I think) going through the SCART connector at 60hz! Looked amazing back then.

    I then had to go home and learn how to wank properly and not to do it in public or over games consoles.

    Was a MD man myself, loved it. Iirc street fighter was better on SNES and that seemed to be the hot topic at school.

    Sold my neo geo aes earlier in the year to raise some funds. I really regret it now even though it rarely got played.

    Snes was the best though. Some of the games still stand the test of time. Mario kart, mario world, yoshis island, street fighter 2 and zelda are some of my favourite games of all time.

    I dunno what it was about the MD but whenever I saw one at other peoples houses they always looked scratched up and badly used, even in the early days and I never saw that with the SNES, I guess now the story is different as every snes bar a few looks like a block of cheese. The pad sockets looked cheap too, compared to the SNES's.

    I had a PAL SNES at launch which I sold a few years down the line and got a s/h US one, and fuck me it was an ugly fucker but the transition from the botched scart output to 60hz RGB was so good I restarted tons of games just to play them at the right speed, with better colours and full screen on my new spunky scart powered 21" telly.

    UK Megadrive with all the classic Sonic games good times as a child. When I grew up I stuck a couple of 60hz mod switches on it so I could finally see how slow the PAL versions of the sonic games were - thinking about it makes me want to unpack it and load it up instead of the PS3 which is gathering dust
