Mean Machines Sega was a monthly magazine devoted to Sega video game consoles in the United Kingdom. It was one of two products that resulted after a previous magazine, Mean Machines split (the other being Nintendo Magazine System, a Nintendo magazine). The magazine was reasonably successful (though not as successful as Mean Machines) and lasted a number of years.

Problems, however, arose when EMAP launched Sega Magazine, a similar product which had the edge in that it was officially endorsed by Sega. As a result, sales of Mean Machines Sega were damaged and the magazine was eventually incorporated into Sega Magazine's successor title Sega Saturn Magazine.

Content from Mean Machines Sega was syndicated for use in two foreign-language publications: Mega Console (Italy) and Mega Sega (Spain).
