Europe

Mega Drive

The original Mega Drive package for Europe, debuting in 1990. It shipped with the earlier style European gamepad and with no pack-in games. In fact, it's the only version of the console not to have any game screenshots on its box, presumably because not many had been released by this point.

Mega Drive (with Sonic the Hedgehog)

Like its North American and Japanese cousins, the Mega Drive was bundled with Sonic the Hedgehog in mid-1991, and was also sold with an extra control pad.

Mega Drive (with Sonic the Hedgehog (One control pad))

Oddly the above model was replaced with this cut-down version, that lacked the extra control pad. Rather than produce a brand new box, Sega simply put a sticker over the image.

Mega Drive (with Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Games 1)

The two control pad bundle had Mega Games 1 added to the set in 1992.

Mega Drive Combat Pack (with Mega Games 2)

Mega Games 2 replaces Mega Games 1 and the bundle is renamed "Mega Drive Combat Pack"

Mega Drive II

Back to square one with the Mega Drive II re-release, with two control pads but no games included.

And again there was a single control pad option without much change to the box outside of a sticker.

Mega Drive II (with Sonic the Hedgehog 2)

The first Mega Drive II bundle threw in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 with two control pads.

Mega Drive II (with Sonic Compilation)

A smaller than usual box with Sonic Compilation added.

Mega Drive II (with Aladdin)

The Mega Drive version of Aladdin was a very big deal at the time of release, and so Sega started selling an Aladdin package. Most of these bundles recycled the standard box but added an extra outer cardboard sleeve.

Mega Drive II (with The Lion King)

Another bundle, but now with The Lion King' as the pack-in game.

Mega Drive II (with Sonic the Hedgehog 3)

Another bundle, but now with Sonic the Hedgehog 3' as the pack-in game.

Mega Drive II (with Sonic & Knuckles)

Another bundle, but now with Sonic & Knuckles' as the pack-in game.

Mega Drive II (with Virtua Racing)

In an attempt to combat Star Fox on the SNES, Sega released Virtua Racing and also bundled it with a Sega Mega Drive II.

Mega Drive II (with Mega Games 6 Volume 1)

Mega Games 6 Volume 1 was bundled with the Mega Drive II for a short period, and the box openly advertised the Sega Mega CD and Sega 32X add-ons.

Mega Drive II (with Toy Story)

Another bundle, but now with Toy Story as the pack-in game.

Mega Drive II (with Mega Games 6 Volume 2)

Another bundle, but now with Mega Games 6 Volume 2 as the pack-in game.

Mega Drive Big 6 Pack (with Mega 6 Volume 3)

Released late in the console's lifespan, the Big 6 pack boasts the 6-game compilation Mega 6 Volume 3 and a six button control pad.
