I actually get a feeling more reminiscent of the Colecovision with the SG-1000 games that I've loaded up via an Everdrive. Compare the Hang-On ports for instance and it really makes the SMS feel like a significantly more powerful system from a later generation.
Not sure if that was just a result of Sega getting better at console development or if they actually souped up the internals when they revamped their home hardware and brought it westward as the Sega Master System.
SG-1000 (Mark I) was Sega's first system, meant to compete with Famicom, and it was closer to Colecovision in ability.
What Dave bought is the Mark III, Sega's third attempt to compete with Nintendo, and when it came to USA it was called Master System.
So the Japanese version of the Sega Master System had SG-1000 support? Or is he playing SG-1000 carts on this via something like a pin adapter to get around any physical issues with compatibility that may exist?
Is the palette issue one encounters with an Everdrive cartridge and SG-1000 roms played on a North American Sega Master System also an issue with the Japanese Mark III? Or is that resolved with the bios support that Scotland says this had for SG-1000 software?
