Buying Original Genesis Hardware

Recommended Posts

I have amassed way too much Sega Genesis Hardware over the years.  And as the price has gone up here is some knowledge if you are thinking about owning sega hardware.

I'll post more as they come to me and others feel free to put tips here as well.

I'd say the Orignal Gens 1 AC Power are closter to  $16 online now.

Have not found a good 3 party yet (those 3-1s don't work)  I just bought a couple of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/351653030424?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT  and was dissapointed.  Cords too short and have to tape in the part that plugs to gens as it's loose.  It does power Sega though.

Are there any plans to involve a retro game shop or anything in selling at King of 94 in Vegas?

I'm shocked by the current market for retro gaming stuff, games that you'd pick up for 0.25 out of the bargain bin are being posted for near new prices.

Also, with all of the knock-off controllers on ebay - it's a real pain to find the original items, nevermind a "deal".

 

I lucked out last year, and found a Sega 'lot' that included a Genesis 1, Genesis 3 and a multitap - for $30 + $10 shipping on eBay. Looking forward to introducing 2v2 to some buds this summer.

If you are series about the getting the best picture for your retro systems, this upscaler is amazing -- XRGB-mini Framemeister.  Chaos had this when we were in Toronto and it's quite amazing.  Pricey, but if you're serious, it's worth it!

Comes from Japan:

Looks to be about $320 now (used to be over $400 I remember), but I think you need some additional cables.

I considered this, and would probably put some money toward the 6-button controllers if someone wanted to split the bounty. But probably better for those that are running tournaments:

Sega lot includes 9 OEM controllers and a handful of 3rd party ones, as well as several cords and adapters. $10 shipping is pretty sweet too.

I buy all my stuff from Fall Out Games in Pheonix AZ. Even tho it's crazy far away from me, its the cheapest and best quality. It's where I got all the systems for KO94 (7 Gens / 7 Snes) and all the cables and controllers all pre-tested. Scott Doss who is a manager there is a huge NHL'94 fan and has been helping me out with the doc from the early days.
