Victor Wondermega RG-M2/JVC X’Eye

Released in 1993, the Victor Wondermega RG-M2 is the first revision of the Wondermega. The case has been completely redesigned and the controller ports have been moved to the rear of the system. In their place are infra-red receivers for the system’s new, wireless controllers. For the first time, the system was also released in North America as the JVC X’Eye in the first quarter of 1994 with some additional changes over the Japanese version. The infra-red receivers are not present and instead use two traditional, 9 pin controller ports like a standard Mega Drive. The S-video connection has also been removed as part of a cost-cutting measure and the system uses a standard AV port, comparable to a Mega Drive II. Both the Japanese and North American systems run a version 2.00 revision of the system BIOS with corresponding Wondermega or X’Eye branding depending on which system you’re running.
