In the 70s Argentina was one of the countries where Sega imported its game machines.

It is known that the division of Impotronic called Gameland distributed the Sega Master System, Sega Mega Drive, Sega Game Gear, Sega Mega CD, Sega 32X (and games) in this country in association with Brazil's distributor, Tec Toy who got distribution rights in Argentina in 1992. Stock intended for Argentina can be identified by Spanish text as opposed to Portuguese, the language of Brazil.

Video game piracy was prevalent in Argentina for a period, and unlicensed consoles were often more popular than official alternatives. Imported stock from North America was also common.

The unlicensed Sega Mega Drive games TC 2000 and Truco '96 are known to come from the country.

In the 90s there was also Club Sega de San Martin.

Cablevisión TCI supposedly carried an Argentine version of the Sega Channel.

The next distributor was BMG Ariola who brought Sega Saturn to Argentina.

From 1999, CD Market distributed Sega Dreamcast in Argentina.[1]

Latam Games distributes Sega games in Argentina from 2012[2]. The company also cooperated with NC Games[3].
