The SG-1000 (Sega Game 1000), known in New Zealand as the Sega 1000, is a video game console released in 1983 by Sega. It stands as Sega's first entry into the video game console market, and though was not seen as a huge success, gave the company more experience when dealing with future systems. It is now a rare and often sought after console. It used both cartridges and Sega Cards as storage media. However, to use Sega Cards on the SG-1000, a Card Catcher is necessary.
The SG-1000 sold about 2 million units worldwide. Its computer counterpart, released during the same period, is the SC-3000. With hardware expansions, the SG-1000 could function as a personal computer similar to the SC-3000. There is also SG-1000-based arcade hardware. It had an improved version, the SG-1000 II, and was succeeded by the Sega Mark III, which was released worldwide as the Sega Master System.
