The Sega SC-3000 was distributed in Egypt by Cactus International. The console was known in the second half of the 1980s when it had to compete with the Atari 2600 whose original versions and copies were popular in Egypt.
Sega began promoting the Sega Master System console in the early '90s, along with a year-long membership card for the Sega Club, where it was possible to borrow Sega cartridges.
Later, the regional distributor was and still is Sega Europe which has been delivering goods to local distributors for many years.
From the late 2000s, Red Entertainment Distribution was involved in the sale of Sega products until 2019. It’s unknown where will SEGA products resume sales due to its current MENA distributor being unable to reach Egypt due to the country’s ongoing situations.
Sega Toys are distributed by NewBoy.
