Mega Drive III da Tec Toy: Packaging and Accessories

Collecting consoles and video game cartridges old Classic is not a hobby enjoyed by all. Children and adolescents now, many do not want to know anything that has inferior graphics to the islands of the last generation. Even those who had and played these classic video games in its infancy, some have dismissed them. I've heard reports of up to who played the classic console in the trash, which in the ideal world would be punished with the obligation to play ET. do Portal 2600 for two hours for five consecutive years.

But who saved his classic console has today a source of top fun. Even the graphics and sounds has its charm, since making music for the classic consoles was harder to do traditional music, with plenty of instruments. I had to make good music within the constraints of sound generator chips islands. It was so great composers as Yuzo Koshiro stood out. The same principle applies to the graphs. Draw something that could be identified with so few pixels was a real challenge.

The greatest value of classic consoles is sentimental. Play again a classic console brings back childhood memories, teens, or in the case of the newer simply gives you the opportunity to try something that is now part of history. But the monetary value also exists. The value of a classic console varies considerably from conservation status. Furthermore, items such as the original box, manuals and accessories can be the difference between a classic console worth tens or hundreds of dollars. Some even collect only for collecting, seeking to have complete collections, rare games, etc. even if they never go actually play most of these games. That is not my case, so much that I'm content with a Everdrive and an SD2SNES to play. But to admire those who do, I just have no money and space to make and keep such collections.

The fact is that most people I met are very careless with their video games and electronics in general. In my childhood was pretty asked to install video game colleagues and even strangers. Connect an RF cable to VHF antenna was not so difficult, not least because at the time people do not have anything connected to the VHF antenna connector in my region, simply because all open channels were in the UHF. But the fact is that people do not read the manual. But worse than not reading the manual is simply discard it. And many people do it: buy something novo, box strip, evil league and has been playing out the packaging along with all manuals and invoice. Must be why classic consoles “Full” They are so rare, and therefore more expensive.

But I did my part to preserve history, keeping and maintaining the boxes, manuals and accessories of my classic consoles at a level that is at least above average. Not that I want to sell them. This is definitely not in my plans unless it is an absolute and real need. I do not know what will become of them after I leave this world. Maybe my heirs have the same appreciation and they are passed from generation to generation, as if they were family jewels. Or maybe end up eaten by moths, or on eBay or, worse, in the trash. But as I said, I've been doing my part. 🙂

And to work with the community retrogamer I will show here some items, many of them rescued in recent cleanings and organizations, it was all a bit spread. I do not intend to mount a “Museum” here on the blog, even because I'm not a true collector, do not buy almost anything classic and most classic I have are the ones that have become classic in my hand, in other words, There are 20+ years with me. But if someone solve mount a virtual museum, my contribution is given. I only ask, of course, the blog to be quoted and linked.

    Skooter, I have a Genesis2 (with 32X and SegaCD, among other tidbits more), and I am in the area this Mega, I'm from Sumare.

      Very interesting this calculation. If you analyze to what is not unrealistic, since in 1993 Mega Drive was the current generation. Today the US sells the XBox One, What is the current generation, for a good price close to that.

      Another factor to consider is that the Brazilian scenario worsened only 1993 the cá. In 1993 Tec Toy was already suffering with high Brazilian tax burden. Most people who have had Genesis I knew had the Japanese model, coming in through Paraguay. Few had the Tec Toy because it was much more expensive. Tec Toy did try to have differential to offset the high price: Master Club, Mega Club, then melted in Sega Club, Hot Line, etc. It was until very competent gaming translation, modification of consoles, etc. But a few years later Tec Toy ask bankruptcy. Now in 2014 the situation is even worse: I do not know anyone who has bought a PS4 or Xbox national One. The tax burden only increased and almost prevented the domestic video game industry. And there is no prospect of improvement, since the current government did nothing to help it, but hinder imports, which only collaborate to return to the scenario even worse the years 80, with market reserve, and expensive and outdated clones. 🙁

    Recalling that the Skooter is the Mega Drive III, that already is more modern. The Genesis is Carlão 2. Mine is the first Genesis! E pense em um videogame resistente! Engraçado que penso nos de antigamente como super resistentes, e os de hoje em dia parecem ser de vidro.

      Por sinal, eu comprei um Mega 3 como o do Skooter, pras crianças (e pra não zoarem o meu), e gostei do fato dele ter fonte embutida e ainda ter o conector para o SegaCD (não imaginei que tivesse), porém minha motherboard é diferente da dele. Vou ver se tiro umas fotos e mando pro Skooter.

      Skooter, by sinal, seguinte, no post que voce fala sobre RGB e cabos SCART, eu sou um maniaco por RGB, praticamente todos os meus consoles e micros antigos tem adaptação para RGB, e chegou a existir TV com SCART, national.

      É a Philips Trendset Stereo 20CT6555, lançada em 1986. Eu tenho duas 😀 A imagem é maravilhosa, e o som é INACREDITAVEL.

      Furthermore, you may also use some monitors as RGB 15kHz, como o Commodore 1084S, which was sold in Brazil, and some rare LCD as the LG M1721A. But these last, has the SCART connector, and you need to fabricate your own cables.

        Great information. I did not know there had been a national TV with RGB.

        Hello! Just I got this comment via google! I am about to buy a TV these… It gives a lot of maintenance? And if you think-spare parts? Hug!

          A Philips Trendset Stereo 20CT6555? Look, I bought 4 to make two. One was PERFECT conservation status, but the tube was cansadinho and I exchanged. The second was much more sambada, and it took a lot of effort to get well, and yet she continued with a defect in the sound card, where it only decodes the audio in Stereo or SAP, from the antenna. This is for use to watch TV, as I use only for video game / computer, it makes no difference. The detail is that you're getting a TV with 30 years, fatally will need some maintenance and the parts of it are hard to find. Goes much luck, to find you a flawless and in perfect working order, and it has been frequently used for all these years. TV that stood for 3, 4 years, It is zoada, and TV which was VERY used, ditto. It's complicated.
