History of Sega in Nigeria

This teeny-tiny article needs some work. You can help us by expanding it.


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

At the end of the 80s, third-generation gaming consoles - NES and Sega Master System - were poorly accessible and only the richest had them.

In the 90s, Sega Mega Drive was released in Nigeria and was quite a popular console among the offered Sega consoles. Several other consoles were released such as Sega Game Gear, Sega Mega-CD II and Sega 32X but they remained little known. The popularity of Mega Drive was due to the emerging game houses .The Sega console appeared in this region in the Asian PAL and European PAL system.

Game houses popped up everywhere where everybody had to pay money for playing consoles. As a result, some parents decided to buy consoles so that children would not spend more money in game houses.

Then came Sony Playstation which initiated the fifth generation of games. Sega Saturn was released before here, but only a few people had it.

Sega Dreamcast was released but, like Saturn, only a few had it.Alaba International Market has become popular and at this stage the fight took place mainly between Playstation 2, Xbox and GameCube.At this point, video games were gradually becoming pop culture in Nigeria.[1]

After the Sega Dreamcast console, games are released with more focus according to European standards.
