Would be nice if you could post names and a description on what some of these devices are because without context, some of these could just be an old stereo or VCR unit for all some of us know, or just another kind of gameshark.

Like, this says Famicon, so I get that it's an old Nintendo device, probably from the 80s, and I see controllers, and a port which might be a diskette/floppy drive, but what is it exactly? What's that big golden knob/spire on there?

Now THAT is a peripheral I haven't seen, is it official, does it do anything special or is it merely like the Super Gameboy and allows you to play your Advance on your TV?

I don't know. I think the Jaguar was rushed out and they botched it up by linking together two shitty 32-bit processors.

If they had released the Panther and gave Jaguar a few more years to develop, they could have had a system on par with the Playstation and released it for a similar price point. Instead they had a system that was barely 5th gen.

My theory is this:

This guy is obviously a redditor.
He first posted the find on reddit in fact.

Just like a month or more prior to his post there was a front page link to a documentary about these recluses that would sit in their house all day studying ancient lost art and such in text books and would recreate them perfectly tricking museums into buying them.

This guy might of saw that post and decided to see if he could do the same. This here >>2690867
is a page right out of their tactics.

All he had to do was fabricate the plastic case and insert SNES parts into it (controller ports etc) The Controller is literally just a SNES controller with different text on it and colors.

He never showed the innards of the console or anything so it could very well be fake.

This is all a very farfetched idea, but possible.

I really think you have to jump through a whole lot more convoluted explanations to say that every part of this is a fake than to just think it to be real for the time being. It isn't like prototypes of old game things are extremely elusive commodities. Rare, yes, but few-to-one-of-a-kind protos of old games show up for sale with some regularity. This is really no different. Just because it is more desirable doesn't make it rarer or less likely to have survived than old developer-used proto carts or review proto carts that were supposed to be returned to the company.

Someone had it, hung onto it, and it was then later rediscovered. How hard is that to believe? Sure of course it could be fake, but at a certain point it starts to sound like some people WANT it to be fake. I honestly don't care one way or the other, though the demo cart with it might be interesting.

Does anyone here have the Sega Powerstrip?

>five widely spaces sockets so you can fit all the AC adapters needed for the Sega Genesis, the Sega CD, and the Sega 32X, as well as the power cable for your television, and one socket to spare
>slick black look with big embossed blue letters between each socket, spelling out SEGA
>surge protection
>power switch

It's pretty cool that they put out a product like this for people who actually had the expansion modules. Ok, the 32X was fucking bogus and overpriced, but it would facilitate it for you, and the CD unit actually had a lot of great games once you got past all the full motion video garbage, so even if it was expensive, at least it had a library worth a shit (and it could play music CDs, if that mattered).

The thing was only $12 back in the day, but these days they go for like $100, so it makes little financial sense when you can get a better performing unit for much less at a general store for a normal price (and if adaptor boxes hogging space is an issue, you could always connect them with extension cords to the power strip), there's little reason to get one today beyond collecting.

It'd be pretty neat to have a fully expanded Genesis hooked up to one of these though, complete with a pair of six button pads.
