Hi gang... I'm not sure how the region coding worked on the Mega Drive but I saw a vid somewhere on youtube that if your Mega Drive says "Stereo Sound" and has the serial port visible on the back that its actually region free... does anyone know if thats true? I was tempted to buy the Japan only Dragon Ball Z game the other day but hesitated when i thought about the region. Though I was always able to play the imported version of Xmen 2 Clone Wars, but then I don't know if that game was region coded its self. Was it the games or just the machine that dictated region?
