Socialist Yugoslavia

Socialist Yugoslavia did not belong to the Warsaw Pact. A small amount of Sega, Nintendo and Atari games and consoles were sold here.In the 70s Yugoslavia was one of the countries where Sega imported its game machines.The only known company that sold Sega Master System was Comy, which began importing the console from 1990.[1]

Croatia

Croatia declared independence from Yugoslavia in 1991. One of the first and popular consoles was Terminator 2 modeled on Sega Mega Drive.

The distribution of Sega consoles was handled by VTI since 1994. At the beginning Sega Mega Drive model II and Sega Game Gear were available from retailers and later also Master System model II, Mega CD model II.

Mega Drive 32X, Sega Saturn and Sega Dreamcast have also been released in Croatia but have passed without much interest.

In 2004 Slovenian company Videotop began selling Sega games in this country.[2] In 2010, the distribution was started by Computerland and in 2014 Videotop returned for sale which in 2016 became a representative of Sega in all former Yugoslavia.[3]In 2017, Videotop became the property of Computerland Group.[4] In 2018, Videotop was acquired by Colby which also belongs to the Computerland Group which means that the distributor of Sega is now Colby.[5]
