Sega Channel

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Quote:
For about $12.95 per month (depending on your cable company) gamers got a Sega cartridge adapter to borrow and access to 50 games per month which would be downloaded to a flash card inside of the cartridge. Games did not save for "offline" play but the thrill of having a virtual video store in your house was intense. One of Sega's unique twists was the availability of prerelease (demo) versions of upcoming games only to Sega Channel subscribers. The channel also boasted exclusive Sega Channel only titles which were never released in cartridge format. However as awesome as this sounds, the Sega Channel was a failure and continuing the Sega legacy, was far ahead of its time.

This is neat. I didn't even know they had come out with this. Boy I wish I were more of a gamer when I was younger..

Hmm...I never heard of this. It wasn't offered in Columbus, or I very well might have tried it. Maybe not, I rented SNES games more than Genesis back then...and $13 a month is a lot if you're not a dedicated Genesis loyalist.

Still, definitely ahead of its time for 1994.

We had this when I was in 2nd and 3rd grade. My brother used to hog it all the time xD. It was the first time that I played Comix Zone, and I fell in love with the weird, bulky device.
