    Complete system with, one controller, AC adaptor, and RF unit.

    The Sega Master System (SMS for short) is an 8-bit cartridge-based gaming console that was manufactured by Sega. Its original Japanese incarnation was the SG-1000 Mark III. In the European market, this console launched Sega onto a competitive level comparable to Nintendo, due to its wider availability, but failed to put a dent in the North American and Japanese markets. The Master System was released as a direct competitor to the NES/Famicom. The system ultimately failed to topple its Nintendo competitor, but has enjoyed over a decade of life in secondary markets, especially Brazil.

    years later I'm still having fun.
    by Mathieu 05 Jun 2008

    I was playing with my SMS when I was 12, and I found it back 2 months ago. 15 years later I'm still having fun.

    The master system is the only system that I know that you can use a pair of 3D glasses to play games! The 3D effect is very good, even for this 21st century!
    Never I will sell those glasses. Never!

    for anyone with a master system

    for anyone with a master system, but messed up controllers, use sega genesis controllers, they work ust as well, (but don't expect the start button to work on the controller, you still have to press the pause button on the console to pause the game).

    Sega Master System
    by Jaymee 22 Mar 2007

    Recently, just for fun, I purchased an old NES system and began collecting games. Unfortunately, I'm still on the hunt for an original tetris, but that's what makes it fun. A few weeks ago, though, I was in the basement and I found the Sega Master System, and with a little more searching, I was able to find a controller, and a mess of old hook-up wires. The Sega Master System wires weren't there, but I used a few nintendo and Sega Genesis hook-ups to get the system started, and it now it works like magic! I came to here to find out the code for the maze game, as I forgot it years ago. I didn't realize that there were two models of this system created. Apparently, I have the first. But I wanted to know if there are any distinguishing features on each model so I can tell the difference?
