Does no one remember the "Sega Master System II" ? It had Alex Kid built in to the console itself so when you turned it on with no cartridge inside you could play Alex Kid, was I the only person who owned one?.


not every unit did. my master system had hang on and safari hunt built in.

What is a SG-1000 ?
I'm sure it wasn't popular enough to matter.

Bottom line is, the console invalidates the TC's original notion. Plus it's good to see a fellow mater system 2 owner. Now I know I didn't just simply imagine owning it when I was a kid...

I think with Sony and MS coming out maybe a month apart... Sony will outsell it pretty fast. If MS thinks Kinect more then anything, then they will be doomed. And this is coming from someone who owns 80% more 360 games, cuz they run better on the 360... I can't wait to see the third party support and how well games run on the systems, if there's not much dif then Sony will still win in the end for me. Not really caring much for Gears or Halo anymore.

Are you saying that the PS3 was a "failure" ?

Winternova's counts, yours doesn't. Yours was a master system with a different sku, that's it. It still played all the Master System games and didn't play any that couldn't be played on the Master System.

Just because it wasn't popular doesn't mean it wasn't Sega's first cartridge-based console. That means that the 3rd console (apart from revisions to the SG-1000 and Sega Master System) was the Genesis. Additionally, the Color TV Game was Nintendo's first console, meaning the SNES was their third. This ruins the "third console curse" theory.
