Brand New Sega Megadrive unboxing. I could call it a Sega Genesis unboxing, but that would be technically false. But anyway, Yes! You heard it, I picked up a brand new old stock Sega Mega Drive at auction, and I'm going to break those 30 year old seals to reveal the treasure within. Hold onto your waste packets for some retro unboxing asmr action, of the best kind. PRISTINE I tell ye. PRISTINE.
The T-Shirt I'm wearing in this video is from my good friend Quang and his brother at featuring an Atari Power Pad, no less.

  • I wouldn't be surprised if it has dry capacitors because they haven't been powered for 30 years. Electronics must be powered up every now and then, for instance an hour every 5 years. Pristine and/or sitting on the shelf for too long is bad.

  • Now I'm not sure how rare it is exactly, but I happen to have a literal like new original Nintendo Entertainment System box with all the internal packaging. A buddy of mine actually found it while doing construction on a local building and gave it to me. Pretty darn cool I must say! Specially considering inside the box were four absolutely Mint, Like New NES game boxes as well, for the original Castlevania, Metroid, Bionic Commando, & cant recall what the last one was.

  • Nice!! I have a lot of boxed mega drives at the moment. I used to have a lot more but I dont see them come back in as often but each one is a different level of mintness so its so nice to see one in PRISTINE condish! My favourites are the one which i had as a kid with was the pack with sonic and 2 pads with a carry case (the carry case was outside of the box). next is the japanese console which has the white box (like a master system) but is really nice to un box, the box is slimmer too) and then theres the first run altered beast pack (these ones had an extra port on the back). These one i have i like the best. if you like the mega drive its nice to get those 3 models out side by side. anyways One thing you will like to see are the differences of the d pad of the controllers that sega put out. Ive opened up many over the years to fix em up but there are d pads on megadrive pads that have the buttons for it on the back of the pcb (abc and start still on the front) when you press down on the d pad its connected to this plastic disc inside which then presses the button on the back of the pcb!

  • You didn't need to use your webcam to film this. 😂 Seriously though, I hope the video quality returns to something more normal. At the very least, you shouldn't be shooting in interlaced video, silly. Videos on this channel have had evidence of interlacing for way too long now. It's not 2008 anymore. The video quality would have been noticeably better if you had used a maybe do that then? I'm honestly disappointed that there aren't more comments about this, since poor video quality has been a long running atd obvious issue now on this channel. And don't get me wrong, I know it's more about the content and all that, but fixing these issues would be as easy as putting an iPhone on a tripod, so I really don't understand why he's putting so much effort into using such a strange camera setup.

  • Love me some Sega Mega Drive. I've never seen such a mint condition Mega Drive box. The last ei opened a new Mega Drive was way back in 1992 being so excited and seeing Sonic The Hedgehog and Mega Games 1 and then playing Super Hang On. In fact the Mega Drive was my second console and yes I had that Sonic The Hedgehog poster on my wall. It's amazing you have all the original documentation and it's all it retail condition.

  • just because its brand new doesn't mean its perfect, i would check the caps in the power supply and mainboard. those notorious nineties caps can and do go bad(dry up), i bought a new old stock pal tg16 and the caps were dry, other than that great find, now for a mega cd and 32x.

  • I am not sure if i would open those bags although it is really tempting to be brutally honest with you! But i really love how you opened this and show it-share it with us.I remember me with my snes when i was finishing the games i played putting the system back in the box because i wanted nothing to happen to it seeing it like new all the times,but after some years you understand that this needs to be plugged in all times in front of your tv sets!

  • I have one too,but like the Mega Drive Flashback 2018 cause it smaller,its to big now.I made my Mega CD fit it too,I cut it in half so it would fit and lt looks cool.I like emulation now cause you can save your game,unless you get something that cost over £200. Menacer don't work on TVs today so need a CRT TV, a Big heavy mother,it was all right but ended up been a flop like the Mega CD.I like the Mega CD better than the Mega Drive. Why do you sound like a presenter from the BBC and from Tomorrows World.. :) and look like a professor.

  • It is very very SAD that people like you and me,yes you because you're watching it too, can really appreciate that unboxing it brought back vivid memories of when I opened my Master System the same plastic bags and red print ahhhhh, its also bought back great memories of Christmas 1999 and I hunted a whole weekend for a Dreamcast at release in off all the places to look but Rural North Devon I had also bought The Matrix on DVD, I had moved to Clovelly "google it to appreciate the Rural point I made" North Devon, and had those 2 items for excitement for the whole of Xmas 99 I did, however, get that Resident Evil type game I think "Blue Stinger" and had to wait till the new year and then get Power Stone and Soul Calibre which I could use with the cool memory card. all that from an unboxing video?

  • All my chilhood ! I still remember that fucking christmas 93 I was six years old and my brother and I had this megadrive as a gift! We were so happy ! We had three games bundled Golden Axe Streets Of Rage and Super Thunderblade. My brother and I we are still playing megadrive but on emulator (even if I still have the real one) but on my home cinema 5.2.2 and 49 inches screen It s so nice . I know and agree it doesn't worth the original sensations but what a tribute to yuzo koshiro's sor soundtrack
