The SEGA Master System

Quotation1 The Challenge Will Always Be There! Quotation2
— Commercial

The Sega Master System was a console introduced by Sega in 1986, and was capable of 8-bit graphics. It was a rival to the very successful Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) (the Master System was regarded as being superior to the NES in terms of color and graphics) but failed to match its sales in North America and Japan. However, it was successful in Brazil and Europe. Its life was long enough to see four Sonic games (five in Brazil), before its discontinuation in 1991 in North America. In Brazil, it was still being produced.
