Genesis is a stupid name because it wasn't their first home console
>>
Genesis because the name sounds awesome. Fuck if it doesn't make sense. The name Wii makes no sense, but nobody gives a shit about that.
>>
>>332333782
There was a cartridge lock on the MD/Gen?
>>
>>332335284
>Wii makes no sense
The WiiU makes even less sense. Console names are always retarded, just look at the Xbox One.
>>
>>332335418
A what? If you meant there was something to keep the cartridge from coming out, no.
Even the SNES dropped that feature about a year and a half in.
>>
>>332335078
No, but it was likely Sega's first console that most American gamers heard of. And I say this as an American who didn't learn of the existence of the Master System until some time in the PS2/GC/Xbox generation.
>>
>>332335713
So they named the console based on it "probably being the first console Americans would have heard of"? What if it was as unpopular as the SMS?
>>
>>332335664
Was just wondering since the MD in that picture says it.
>>
>>332335713
>Americans are retarded so we have to rename stuff for them
Sounds about right

>>332335664

>picture literally has CARTRIDGE LOCK written on the Mega Drive
I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO BELIEVE

No, the guy is misinformed. The jap MD model 1 has a cartridge lock that snaps into this little grove.
No other MD/Genesis version has it though.
>>
THE ONE THAT SAYS "HIGH DEFINITION GRAPHICS" ON THE PART AROUND THE CARTRIDGE SLOT IS THE SUPERIOR MODEL

step up your game Microsoft/Nintendo/Sony

Cartridges are the one thing that looked better in the west.
>>
>>332336404

Genesis is just Greek for "origin" you twat waffle.

You're the one that decided it had to have a religious meaning.
>>
>>332336080
Only friction kept the cartridge in, just like most other top loading cartridge based consoles.

The SNES had a cartridge lock, but the cartridges were changed to remove the ability shortly into the console's life time, probably because the mechanism was cheaply made (and most kids probably bruteforced the cart out of the system anyway by yanking on it yard enough).
>>
>>332336348
Had to replace my OG Genesis with the Genesis 2 back in '94 or so, and the lack of a headphone jack was horrible.
>>
>>332336348
Same, but I called it Mega Drive anyway
>>
>>332335585
Please use the full name, Xbox One - The All-in-One Games and Entertainment System
>>
Mega Drive. Genesis reminds me too much of the band, besides why change the original name?
>>
>>332336348
Mines like that but the buttons are red.
>>
Why was US always different from EU and JP?
Mega Drive, SNES, Dreamcast, TurboGrafx.. The only exception I can remember was the Master System being the same for US/EU and different in Japan.
>>
Brazilian company Tectoy bought the Mega Drive and Master System blueprints from Sega and they still manufactures the consoles with built-in games

All models of the Sega CD are really aesthetically pleasing. It's the ugly fucking 32X that makes the Megastack look like shit.
The one true unholy trinity would be a Model 1 Sega CD + Model 2 Genesis + 32X[/spoilers]

>>332337860
You sure? I heard those were emulation boxes.
>>
>>332338717
The newer ones are, but they're much better than the AtGames stuff.

Genesis Music?
