I ALWAYS GET ASKED HOW DO YOU PLAY A JAP GAME ON A UK MEGADRIVE OR USA GENESIS

THERE ARE 3 WAYS TO GETAROUND THIS

1.BUY AN ADAPTER

PROS:THEY ARE SIMPLE PLUG IN UNITS THAT ALLOW YOU TO PLAY ANY GAME ON ANY MEGADRIVE

CONS:THEY COST MONEY,ARE HARD TO FIND NOW AND LATER GAMES ARE REGION LOCKED SO THIS WILL NOT HELP IN ALL LATER RELEASE GAMES

2.CONVERT YOUR MEGADRIVE

PROS:VERY SIMPLE AS ALL THE DIFFERENCE IS A SLIGHTLY LARGER CARTRIDE PLASTIC SIDE ON JAP GAMES,YOU CAN TAKE A BIT OF PLASTIC OFF  BOTH SIDES OFF CONSOLE UNIT AND IT WILL FIT INSIDE AS YOUR NORMAL GAMES DO (VERY VERY EASY TO DO AND WONT COST A PENNY,JUST ABOUT 2 MINS OF YOUR TIME

CONS:AS THESE SYSTEMS GET OLDER THEY WILL BECOME MORE COLLECTABLE SO DO YOU WANT TO TAKE A SMALL PIECE OFF YOUR PRISTINE PRIDE AND JOY MEGADRIVE

3. NOT RECOMENDED UNSCREW TOP OF YOUR UK OR USA MEGADRIVE/GENESIS

PROS:WILL FIT IN STRAIGHT AWAY WITH TOP OF UNIT TAKEN OFF

CONS:IT IS NOT VERY NICE HAVING HALF A CONSOLE SITTING THERE WHEN YOU PLAY AND COULD ALSO BE DANGEROUS AS THE UNIT WOULD BE EXPOSED (THIS WAY IS NOT RECOMENDED AT ALL BUT ITS UP TO YOU!)

 

I WOULD RECOMEND GETTING AN ADAPTER BUT IF YOU CANT FIND ONE (AS THEY DONT COME UP VERY OFTEN) TAKE SMALL PIECE OF SIDES OF UNIT EASIER THAN IT PROBABLY SOUNDS AND THIS IS WHAT MOST GAMERS DO AND WONT COST A PENNY! AND YOU CAN ENJOY 100,S MORE GAMES THAN YOU COULD BEFORE

THIS IS JUST A GUIDE NOT TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG BUT IT SHOULDENT!

IN ALL WAYS ONLY LET A RESPONSIBLE ADULT DO ANY OF THESE!!!
