Two Decade Old Mega Drive Supply Uncovered In Warehouse

18-Year-Old-Sega-Mega-Drive-Supply-Uncovered-In-WarehouseThe dream of many is to uncover a warehouse full of old video game stock from a time gone by. Although sounding too good to be true, many have been lucky enough to stumble upon such finds, leaving the rest of the retro gaming community to look on in awe with jealousy. The latest of these archaeological discoveries hails from Thailand where one fortunate classic gamer has secured several shipping boxes of untouched Mega Drive consoles and games.

To think that there are undiscovered locations where consoles and accompanying software have laid dormant for several decades is just mind-boggling. If anything, these warehouse finds could answer many questions rarity hunters may have as to the whereabouts of notoriously rare video games - such as the Sega 32X's 'big three', Phantom Air Mission on the Nintendo NES and also the likes of Cool World on the Super Nintendo.

This recent find by a member of the Sega Galaxy Board has seen four Sega shipping boxes taken home containing 20 unused and unopened PAL-Asian Mega Drive II consoles along with multiple copies of 18 different 16-bit classics - including Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Streets of Rage 2. Luckily enough for us, this new owner of this buried treasure has made it clear that he doesn't have enough room or need for such vast quantities of Sega's past and has begun selling the spares online. Those interested in getting their hands on a pristine Sega Mega Drive II will need to set aside 70 Euros, whilst the majority of untouched games will set you back 10 Euros a piece.

Here's to hoping we'll be the next ones to find the video game equivalent of Atlantis!

Just reserved 2 megadrives and 5 games. Can't wait until they get here! Hope they find some unopened Phantasy Star games or Shining Force someday. That would make my life!

I literally am amazed that this is news?? These have been on sale all over ebay for at least two years, These were not just discovered at all, I bought three from thailand at least two years ago, There were so many flooding the market that many assume they were fakes.

You're right , there are fakes too.
The board inside is much smaller and they don't have the mega cd port.

The ones I sell are original , I opened one to check the board , there are real SEGA chips on the board and the mega cd 2 or 32x is working.
