It has built in stereo headphone out, is compatible with the power adapter to use master system games on it, plus it just looks a lot better and from what I hear is easier to mod a rgb out onto, and is compatible with the first version of sega cd.

But who knows, I may have just read the modding and sega cd stuff from fanboys who love it because of how iconic it looks.

In what way is the fat better?

I still have my slim from 93 and as far as I know the only difference is the omission of the headphone jack.

This is all true but the biggest reason is sound quality overall is superior in a genesis 1, also tototek has a master system converter that works on all 3 genesis revisions(however probably not the flashback/classic things)

Thanks but that link doesn't show any info.

According to the Genesis Wikipedia page:

"This version omits the headphone jack in the front, replaces the A/V-Out connector with a smaller version that supports stereo sound, and provides a simpler, less expensive mainboard that requires less power."

If these are the only differences, I don't really see how that makes it inferior, but either way it doesn't bother me. I was just asking out of curiosity.

No the Fat genny has a better picture with different decoders but there are actually 2 versions of the fat genny.

Don't forget the original Genesis did not have the security features that required games to be licensed by Sega. The early EA games like Budokan and Japanese games would not work on the later model.

The later models would say something like "produced by or under license of Sega of America".

Remember removing the tabs to play the Japanese Mega Drive games because they took too long to release in the US?

I dusted off the original Genesis this weekend. It was a little shaky but it still works. Replayed Sonic, Sonic 2, Sonic 3, and Sonic & Knuckles. All ready for Sonic Mania.

Oh the nostalgia.
