History of Sega in Turkey
Official Sega distributor(s): Metin Tekstil (1991-1994), ARAL (1995-present),

Metin Tekstil made the first attempt to introduce Sega consoles to Turkey in the early 1990s. From March 1991, the first advertisements for the Sega Master System console appeared in newspapers. At the end of the same year, the second Master System model was launched. From 1992, Metin Tesktil began publishing his own magazine called Sega Magazin Mix. They also started importing Sega Mega Drive and Sega Game Gear. Unfortunately, between 1993/1994 the company ended distribution of Sega products.

In 1995, Sega began working with the ARAL. They continued to sell Game Gear and released Mega Drive II. This time the products were not in the European PAL but in Asian PAL system. The 16-bit console was very popular in Turkey. In 1996, TCI's technology group got the rights to distribute Sega Channel in this region, however, so far little is known about the launch of this service here.

Since 1996, ARAL began distributing the Sega Saturn console in the European PAL system, however, the console itself was not as popular as its predecessor.

In 2000, Sega Dreamcast also reached the country. ARAL still sells Sega products in Turkey to this day.[1]Red Vault from Red Entertainment Distribution (Sega distributor in the MENA region) was also available in this country.

Sega's arcade machines have been sold by Meridyen Games and Trio Games Group.[2]
