This article summarizes what we know about Sega in Slovakia.

Throughout its existence, Czechoslovakia saw the release of the Sega Master System console. Sega started selling its products in Czechoslovakia in 1988. The sale of video games was handled by independent retail outlets. In 1990, Sega established an office in this country.[1] Consoles were sold by authorized distributors such as IBEA in Slovakia or Enisof in the Czech Republic. On January 1, 1993, Czechoslovakia split into two different countries.

After the break-up, Sega consoles appeared at local distributors including Mega Drive I, Master System II and Game Gear. In the following years, Slovakia saw the release of the Mega Drive II (in 1994), the Mega CD II (in 1994) and the Mega Drive 32X (in 1995).

During this time, many famiclone began to appear in Slovakia, such as Terminator 2 modeled on Sega Mega Drive.

In 1996, DDC Agency became a distributor of Sega and Atari in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. However, there was a problem because the companies did not have any seller in Slovakia. Throughout 1996, it was not possible to find a company that would be able to distribute products in Slovakia. This resulted in a significant decrease in the importance of the Sega brand in the market and gave a greater chance to competition, including Sony. After some time, Sega Saturn was released to Slovakia, but then the market was already dominated by PlayStation, which caused Sega to withdraw from the country. Dreamcast also appeared in Slovakia in a rather limited number.

In 2004, the CD Projekt company became a distributor of Sega in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.[2]The company slowly became a representative of Sega in other countries of the Visegrad Group. In 2016, Cenega become representative of Sega.[3]
