Also - Mega Drive sucks as a name, because there is no mechanical drive in the unit, and Mega is a misused adjective. Genesis, while non-specific, at least has a historical/societal context to it, and just sounds cool.


There's such a thing as a "solid state drive," it doesn't need to be mechanical. As for "Genesis," I'm fine with excluding ancient creation myths from my video games, thanks very much. :P

there wasn't such thing as a Solid State Drive in 1989 when the Sega Genesis was released. And no, Sega didn't invent one either.

Genesis as a term isn't specific to nonsensical religious use. It is a term for the beginning of something, and is more scientific in nature than it is biblical.

There wasn't any consumer grade solid state drives in 1989.

Star Trek is like Star Wars for dudes who get atomic wedgied by Dungeons and Dragons nerds.

That's why Mega DRIVE is so extra awesome. Arcade power in the home.

Who run the world? Nerds

This is not correct. The actual name is the "Sega Master System." It says it right on the console, on every iteration of the console ever sold. There are no consoles that just say "Sega Base System" or "Segascope 3D System" they just say Sega Master System Power Base on them.

Even the Sears Wishbook sold it as the Sega Master System.

except for the Mark III, which was the original master system :P

 

as far as SSD's intel and sharp did have bubble memory in a few machines of the mid 80's (like most of the early model GRiD laptops used it as non volatile storage)

Everything said was an opinion. Maybe if you grew up on the "other side of the pond" you would view it that way. But, in the US...Nope...

The Euro Mega Drive logo is one of the ugliest console logos and the Japanese Mega Drive logo(s) one of the very best.

 

Their sense of taste is as terrible as their humour.

 

But I do agree that Mega Drive was a cooler name overall.
