Mega Drive / Genesis

The SEGA Mega Drive released in 1988 in Japan, 1989 as the SEGA Genesis in North America and finally in Europe (again known as the Mega Drive) in 1990.

The Mega Drive also was the initial home of SEGA’s most famous mascot, Sonic the Hedgehog. SEGA also released add-on gaming hardware to expand the capabilities, the Mega CD (SEGA CD) and the 32X, but neither were supported in the same way the core Mega Drive enjoyed.
