Clone consoles exist because popular video game manufacturers such as Sega or Nintendo were often slow to market their products in every region of the world. Traditionally a video game console is released in Japan first, then brought to North America, then to PAL regions such as Europe and Australia. But the world is much bigger than these regions, and it often takes months if not years for products to make it to smaller markets such as South America, Asia and Africa. Often the big companies decide against marketing their products in these places as they do not feel they can make a big enough return, or because piracy or various laws prevent them from doing so.
