  7. Sega Pioneer LaserActive: PACs of Fun! This innovative machine could do just about anything when it comes to entertainment. Though we have listed the LaserActive with the Sega consoles, we have done so only because the system plays Sega titles. The device was manufactured by a company named Pioneer.

  8. Sega Nomad: Now, There Are No Limits After the Mega Jet, the unique so-called “handheld console” designed for airlines, was released by Sega, they quickly began working on the Sega Nomad. Seeing success in the market of handheld consoles for other competitors in the market, Sega designed the Sega Nomad to compete with products like the Nintendo Gameboy. The Sega Nomad, unlike many other Sega products, was only released in North America and was never officially released world-wide. Due to the timing of its release, the console had no titles packed-in itself, but utilize

  10. Sega Mega Jet: Fly with SEGA! In 1993, Sega had an innovative idea which led to the development of the Sega Mega Jet. This strange console was designed to be an entertainment system for Japanese Airlines which were used as in-flight entertainment. The Sega Mega Jet was a handheld with no screen and had to be connected to a mounted TV. Japanese airplanes included televisions for each armrest, so the system was designed for players to utilize these small personal TVs. Only four games were available for the flight version of the product, including Sonic the Hedgehog. However,
  11. Sega GameGear: Welcome to the Next Level On October 9th, 1990, the Sega GameGear was released to the public in Japan. The following year, it was released in North America and Europe, and was released in 1992 in Australia. The handheld system was designed to compete with the Nintendo Game Boy, Atari Lynx and NEC Turbo Express. The hardware included a full-color backlit screen and landscaping format, which led Sega to position the GameGear as superior to the GameBoy. Because of the library of games and affordable price, the GameGear was immediately good competition to t
  12. Sega Dreamcast: You Are Now Entering Chapter Three Sega took a step into the future with the Sega Dreamcast, the first of the series of sixth generation video game consoles. This console preceded other big sixth generation names such as Sony’s PlayStation 2, Nintendo’s GameCube, and Microsoft’s Xbox. The Dreamcast was also the last console sold by Sega, ending 18 years of Sega’s presence in the market. As a strategy to answer the issue of expensive hardware in the Sega Saturn, the Dreamcast was meant to reduce costs with cheaper components. While the Dreamcast was not
  13. Sega Saturn: A Little Bit Too Real Sega developed this fifth-generation console and released it on November 22, 1994 in Japan and on May 11th, 1995 in North America.

Its games were in CD-ROM format, and you can find in its library of titles several original games as well as arcade ports. The Saturn enjoyed initial success in Japan, though it didn’t perform nearly as well in
  14. Sega JVC X’Eye: The Perfect Experience The JVC X’Eye was released in the Spring of 1994 as the American version of the Wondermega, and was also released in Japan as the Wondermega II. It included a Karaoke feature and a SVHS output. While it included many unique features, it was overpriced (at about $650) and failed to launch very strongly. Essentially, this console combined the power of the Sega Mega Drive and the Mega CD. It included features such as microphone inputs and an 9-pin AV port. The X’Eye is compatible with CD+G discs and also supported the “Wonder CD” p
  15. Sega CDX: It’s a Sega Genesis, it’s a Sega CD, and it’s a Portable CD Player! The Sega CDX was released in North America in 1994.

The CDX looks similar to many of the portable CD players of its time, demonstrating Sega’s desire to tap into that market. Unlike the Mega-CD, the CDX allowed users to be entertained on the move. The unit had to be connected to a PSU and connected to the television in order to support games. The console was supported by AA

It supported ROM cartridges and included its own library of games. The 32x was marketed to be a low cost alternative for any consumer who wanted to move towards 32-bit gaming. After the release of the Atari Jaguar, Sega felt the pressure to move towards 32-bit gaming, but they knew the Sega Satur
