Unboxing: SEGA Games On Atari 2600

On this kind-of unboxing we take a look at some SEGA releases for the Atari 2600 from the early 80s, before the Master System hit the scene. SEGA really went all out when it came to the packaging and presentation of some of these titles, and photos just don’t do them justice. A majority of these games come from Gremlin Industries, which was purchased by SEGA in the late 70s and released games under SEGA/Gremlin and SEGA Electronics until 1984. Such classics to come out of this include Congo Bongo, Monaco GP, Star Trek: Strategic Operations Simulator and Buck Rogers: Planet of Zoom.

    I would like to see more historical articles like this along with current events for the company to be honest, they are very interesting.
    I try to emphasise this to people who keep saying Sega lost because they have up bothering to look after their hardware line of business, because they talk like Sega always was in the loss making domestic console scene and they were platform agnostic third party for the first time ever moving on from the Dreamcast, no they weren’t, they were always a hardware company as well as a software one and still are, they only suspended their domestic console series – which were just downgraded variants of their arcade consoles that they were based off of for the home scene.

    They only got involved with the home hardware scene after Atari crashed the American industry in 1983, and the effects that had on the market made it very clear Sega had a very good and necessary reason to get involved with that sector of the market (even though it has always been a loss making one for the most part) to provide a stable platform for their fine arcade pedigree of software.

      *In the 80s, it was the closest there ever has been to a truly capitalist free market in the west since, so it was easier than ever to get involved with different ventures, so many companies have been involved from during that time and slowly over time, some have faded out of the picture and seen no real incentive to come back since.

      Even Konami considered at one time and almost did come to the domestic home console market with their own console.
