Master System consoles in South America

From Sega Retro

Brazil

The Sega Master System failed to make a dent in the Japanese and North American markets, but Sega's distributor Tec Toy made it count in Brazil, thanks to limited competition from Nintendo. The Master System was also a success in Europe, but by the time the Sega Mega Drive came along it was starting to be phased out in favour of the superior console. In Brazil, this wasn't the case, and Tec Toy still produce Master Systems to this day to complement their Mega Drive re-releases.

Brazil saw many exclusive versions of the Sega Master System, all of which were released by Tec Toy. This list does not include the Master System Super Compact, Master System Girl, Master System Handy or any of the non-cartridge based machines. The last of these consoles to include a cartridge slot was the "yellow" 2006 edition of the Master System 3 Collection which contains "120" games - its 2007 counterpart with 151 games is not included in this list as cartridge support was removed.
