Well, hows this for an overly specific update?
I've played around with the consoles, giving them a clean and getting them set up.
The Master System really is gorgeous, isn't it?
While the picture looks nice on the PVM, the scart cable doesn't carry sound (it uses a headphone jack from the Model 1 Mega Drive), so I'm missing the joy of plugging it into my sound system and having room shaking bleeps and bloops.
Got it set it up on my big CRT through RF and got sound, but not proper colour. Either way, Hang-On is a bit rubbish, but Safari Hunt works surprisingly well. Snail Maze ain't bad either.
The Saturn appears to be doing fine, though the controller looks like it's on the way out. Might just need a clean, but it was going well wonky when trying to set up the dates and use the system menu. Plugged in an "Arcade Racer" and it worked perfectly. Yet to see it have a problem with disks as I managed to get a game of Daytona in using the wheel. Will keep an eye on it. Need to get a good scart cable for it as well.
Now I'm just trying to put together a hit-list of Master System games to track down and snooping about leads for Saturn mod chips.
So, all in all, I'm dead chuffed with this haul. Thank you for enabling me to fall further into Sega addiction.
