    I know on some clone systems all you need is a converter, similar to the Famicom / NES converter, to make Master System games play in a Genesis slot. Do you think this will work with this system? I wouldn’t want a full module when one can do double duty.

    I’m linking to a converter below so people can see what I’m talking about. I don’t own one as I currently use an AV modded MS2 console.

    Thing is, the Master System can use SG-1000 games just like the Genesis can use Master System games. The only thing keeping US Master Systems from doing so is cartridge shape (though the cards work just fine) and region locking.

    The Genesis, however, has zero support for the SG-1000 video mode. As such SG-1000 games will not work even though at least the cards fit into the Power Base Converter.
