Sega Mega Play

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


The Mega Play is a JAMMA-based arcade board manufactured by Sega with the ability to run Sega Mega Drive games. It was the second attempt by Sega to bring the home console to the arcades, following the Mega-Tech arcade system. Like Mega-Tech hardware, Mega Play hardware saw a release throughout Asia and the PAL regions, but was not released in North America.
