SEGA 16-bit console war dog tags


SEGA used “Pirate TV” as a advertising campaign for the SEGA Mega Drive (US: Genesis) in Britain. The dog tag above was given to a UKR reader by SEGA during a event to try out the Mega CD  and Sonic 2.

This is where I talk about how in my day, console wars where fought on the playground, not behind a computers.  You get the idea.

    Game magazines were pretty vicious back then too.

    Were dogtags a "thing" back then, like a trend with kids with POGs and yo-yos? I know my school made custom dogtags for student who were elementary school. Real ones with our home address and such. It was like those days when kids practiced "safety" if an atomic bomb set off.

    "In my day…" I was in High School when the Genesis came out, so when I was a kid there wasn't a console war. I had a Master System, but nobody knew what it was.

    You don't remember Intellivision spitting that mad game at Atari?
