I loved all of the Sega-related Easter eggs in the Shenmue games, it made them the perfect sendoff for Sega's hardware.

I had the JVC variant. I loved that thing.

What is the back slot for ?

Memory cartridges, Game Sharks, and NetLink adapters that work if you use a DreamPi.

I use mine for an Action Reply (basically a Game Shark) and it lets me play North American games on my Japanese console.

The model doesn’t really matter. The Japanese ones tend to be a bit easier to get for a good deal.

Then I’m lucky to have an NA model myself.

These days you can use it with a flashed 4MB action replay cartridge to play burned discs

God I love Sega consoles. They all aged like fine wine and have some excellent games.

Agreed. I’m sort of biased towards them myself.

I beat Nights into Dreams once on my Saturn.

But I use a North American model as well for that.

It always bothered me that Ryo has a Saturn in a story set before the Megadrive had come out. Even the Mark III (later to be rebranded as the Master System) was released a mere 13 months prior to the murder of Ryo’s father.
