|Fast facts on the Remote Arcade System|
|Made for: Sega Mega Drive|
The Remote Arcade System, known as the Sega Cordless Pad Set (セガコードレスパッドセット) in Japan, is a wireless alternative to the standard Sega Mega Drive controller. It comprises a Remote Arcade Pad and a receiver, which rely on infrared signals rather than cables (similar to TV remotes). This means the user can control a game from a much larger distance. In PAL regions the bundle was called the Infra Red Control Pad and contained two controllers - controllers were not sold separately in this region.
The Remote Arcade Pad features six buttons, and the receiver plugs into both of the Sega Mega Drive's controller ports. In order for a second player to play, a second Remote Arcade Pad will need to be purchased. One receiver can handle two controllers. Each pad requires two AAA batteries and lasts for approximately ten hours.
