Sega Saturn consoles in Europe

From Sega Retro

These models are all black and externally quite similar to the NA models, but they naturally run at the 50 Hz refresh rate characteristic of PAL territories. Production run model numbers are very similar except they have a 2 in place of the third digit. A US MK-8000A would be an MK-80200A in Europe. The odd exception is the MK-80200-50, which has no US equivalent. Also, EU/AUS machines will have "PAL" next to the BIOS revision number on the system settings screen instead of "NTSC", unless the system has been modified. There is no SECAM Saturn. The French used the same PAL Saturn as the rest of Europe but with a different RF/SCART adapter.

Models:

  • MK-80200 / MK-80200-50 (PAL model 1): The first is unconfirmed, though it's safe to assume that, if it exists, it's based on the first major Saturn design. The second is based on the first major Saturn design, is jet black with oval buttons and has a Drive Access LED. One green power light next to the power switch, One orange Drive Access LED next to the Reset button, large trapezoid like eject button, usual Saturn styling, air holes in the side casing unlike some later models. Version 1.01a BIOS.
  • MK-80200A-50 / MK-80201 (PAL model 2): The first is based on the first major Saturn design, is jet black with grey round buttons and lacks a Drive Access LED. There were at least four different motherboard revisions used in these models. Something of interest is that some early examples have 'Model 1' revision motherboards. The second is unconfirmed, though it's safe to assume if it exists it's based on the second major Saturn design.
