|History of Sega in Vietnam|
|Official Sega distributor(s): Unknown (199?-2010), New Era (2012-2019), Unknown (2019-present)|
In the 70s Vietnam was one of the countries where Sega imported its game machines.
Consoles weren't allowed in the 80s and early-90s due to the ruling party at that time. Some Sega systems like Mega Drive have been released in the mid-90s.
There weren't many families that could afford to have consoles at home, so game centre began to pop up, where people for money, play on such systems without buying them and centers had famiclones, later Sega systems and then PSX, PS2.
From 2012, New Era distributed Sega titles until 2019, when Sega ended up with another unknown distributor due to its current Asian distributor not able to reach Vietnam.
