I've heard of this system around the schoolyard during the 90s and yet I never knew anyone that ever owned one and I was fascinated about having this "arcade experience" right at home. I did do some homework on this as much as I could and I found out depending on its serial # it will determine the quality of the RGB that it outputs so I wanted to make sure I picked a good low number and it was not easy finding one. 1. Are there any differences between the US and the Japanese version of the console besides the BIOS? 2. Can I use the Neo Geo CD controller on the AES version of the system or do they only work on their own respective systems? Can I use any other controllers on this system like Sega Genesis or anything else? 3. The console I bought didnt come with any video cables (cheap bastards.) What should I look for so I can play this on my TV, I dont want to get the wrong thing. 4. I did buy this system fully aware of the fact that the games are notoriously expensive. I saw that there are multicart like solutions that can store a whole bunch of games but each one I've looked at has its own problems and quirks to deal with. Are there any everdrives of any sort in which I can play every game ever on a single cart with no problems at all? If not what would be the closest thing to that. 5. What mods can I do on this system to get the most out of it and is this naturally region free or do I need to mod the system for that too?
