Mega Everdrive region free?
« on: October 13, 2013, 07:37 AM »
Hey guys, I've been picking up some old consoles I've grown up with lately and found this Mega Everdrive.
I haven't picked up a genesis yet, but an awesome local shop has a Japanese Megadrive + CD Model 2 for about $100 (with 6 button controller)

It's in awesome shape, but I didn't know if the MegaED would allow me to play US games on it.  I've read that many games after 1994 do a region check and just curious if I should wait for a US genesis/cd.

Thanks again.

Probably all games will work. Few games used smart enough region protection which can not be disabled with megakey, but i suppose that those games can detect 50/60 Hz mode, but not actually detect JAP/USA region, cuz both is 60Hz
