The Sega Game 1000 (SG-1000)

The SG-1000 was Sega's first video game system. It was technologically similar to the Colecovision, but did not directly compete with it as it was marketed mainly in Asia and Australia. The SC-3000 was a simple computer system compatible with the SG-1000. In 1984, Sega released the SG-1000 Mark II, which featured an expansion port. The system was succeeded by the Mark III, which was later renamed to Master System. The Othello Multivision is an SG-1000 clone that was only sold in Japan. The BitCorp Dina, known in America as Personal Arcade, could play both Colecovision and SG-1000 carts.

System Configuration

There are no system specific options for the SG-1000.


The standard joysticks or joypads were the only input devices used on the SG-1000.

Limitations: Only the original SG-1000 (Mark I) is emulated.

Accuracy: Emulation quality is quite high, all games seem work well.

ROM Database

The database currently holds about 100 entries for this system, including some ROMs for the (fully compatible) Othello MultiVision and the SC-3000, a home computer based on the SG-1000.
