More specifically: Reportedly, NOT all N64 Colored produce better image quality. Some Funtastic consoles are the same on the inside as the original Gray console.

First time I heard about it in Finnish game-forum. I got interested to do this N64 Gray vs. Colored comparison.

I was searching Google search but not found better N64 console discussions. That's why I want tell N64 fans.

Interested to know whether also how NTSC USA and Japan Colored consoles.

If you have, please send your the serial number (NUP), what colour, PAL, USA or Japan console, and the image quality is BETTER or NOT. As is known from the serial numbers from the "better" start consoles.

It seems like a composite vs a s-video. :huh:
I tested both same composite cable (I don't have S-video cable) and is not used in the Expansion Pak (using Jumper Pak, both same yes).

My NUP 16111072 (Eur. PAL) for the reads NUS-CPU(P)-02. TIP: In the power supply "hole" (console) and see from different angles until you can be found by searching.


USA and Japan since 1998 models are: NUS-CPU-06, NUS-CPU-07, NUS-CPU-08, NUS-CPU-08-1, NUS-CPU-09 and latest NUS-CPU-09-1. These models SHOULD have better image quality(?), when the Main Chips is the same as (European better image) NUS-CPU(P)-02.
Main Chips:
CPU-NUS A
RCP-NUS
RDRAM36-NUS
MAV-NUS
AMP-NUS

If you want to test the image quality of an N64 you really need to use a good old CRT TV, at least for testing purposes.
I can make testing with CRT tv. Pictures coming weekend or next week! :)

I've been playing Gray & Colored N64 with CRT tv, about 5 years ago. I noticed sharper image in CRT tv.

@mega mania,

if you increase your TV sharpness for the grey console, I wonder if that makes the exact same image quality as the colour console (sharpness on tv set to normal)?
If I add sharpness 50% in tv, yes see the difference. Perhaps less than sharpness 0%.

More info from my USA Ice Blue console. CPU is NUS-CPU-09-1, it is the latest version. Bad luck when the picture quality is not sharper.
