SEGA Mega-CD 2

Hi,

I was wondering if you could help me. I was recently clearing out my in-laws house and came across a sega mega cd 2. I am not a computer game guy and know nothing about them.

The console is in its original packaging and has never been used/opened.

Does anyone have any info on it and is it worth anything?

Thanks

Wow lovely! That'll be worth a few quid alright.

Are you sure they've never been opened? (Still signs of any seals?) That'll make a huge difference to the price.

I just had a look there and it has been opened but all the internal packaging is there. From the looks of it nothing has ever been taken out of the box. Is there anywhere I could bring it to get it valued?

A Mega CD 2 would be about 40/50 Euro, the three button equivalent of that joystick is about 30 Euro. Those prices are for items that are far more used than yours seem to be. The fact that they are Japanese could have some effect. Would a Jap Mega CD 2 be compatible with a Euro MegaDrve?

No there’s region checks to ensure the Megadrive region matches the mega cd region. You have to mod the megadrive for region switching for it to work.

As for the value, you should be looking at way way more than 50 quid. Check ebay completed listings, but gut instinct would tell me €250/€300 for the mega cd alone?

If you fancy sticking it on the Marketplace here, I'm sure people could buy it from you, rather than the choppy lowball waters of Adverts.
Might be tempted to make an offer myself!

As Inviere said, you're looking for a LOT more than 50 quid for this boxed.

Ebay ended auctions is the way to go, here's a boxed Japanese one that sold for $400.

If it was sealed you'd be looking for even more again.

Wow, unreal find

Easily worth €300-400 going by sold listings.

Better check with the brother or sister in law before doing anything with them tho

Would you believe it was about to be thrown in a skip. I had to persuade my brother and father in law it might be worth saving.

I'm just disappointed that, thanks to the helpfulness of the folk on the Arcade and Retro forum I've missed out on a €50 boxed MegaCD2!

Only kidding, I hope you make a few bob on it!

Been eyeballing some megadrive stuff over the last few days on ebay, and from what I've seen; used Mega-CD 1 & 2 variants boxed are easily around the GBP£200+ mark (so about €220+), so as much as I wouldn't mind a cheap find, upwards of that figure sounds about right as a rough rule of thumb. That said, I've not seen any Japanese variants so that might change the value again due to being more rare in these parts.

What a find though!

If I'm not mistaken, a Megadrive + Mega CD combo goes for a out €200? Pretty sure I saw one that price recently...

Edit: nevermind, I'm thinking of PAL models. Seems you can get boxed combos for about €150-200.
