there's a dozen more bundles I haven't had the patience to add:

problem is, stuff was localised and photos are poor. It's an absolute pain to document all these things when we have no idea how many bundles there actually were -Black Squirrel 13:58, 6 October 2011 (CDT)
"(French MDs neither have composite nor RF. They're RGB only.)" Same with SMS, but there was a SECAM model made for the Soviet Union; smspower.org/forums/files/0_86d3a_f0592be5_orig_134.jpg , which brings me to this Russian TV show which featured in both the show and commercials European style SMSs and MDs. Maybe those were SECAM too. It's probably just simpler to say all European models output 50Hz.--Pirate Dragon (talk) 18:45, 7 April 2015 (CDT)
I personally don't think there was a one-size-fits-all "European" Sega console until the Mega Drive 2 - I started a table once, but I didn't really know what I was doing. It needs more investigation. -Black Squirrel (talk) 04:10, 8 April 2015 (CDT)
Is there any point in having generic pictures of European consoles for every single European country with no differentiating details? I mean, even just a local distributor's sticker on the box would make having a Croatian Mega Drive variant relevant, and a picture of a Croatian manual would be even more interesting. But just using existing pictures from other countries with no difference from the country that the variant is listed under seems rather pointless.--Pirate Dragon (talk) 16:46, 20 August 2018 (CDT)
