Mega Games I, released as Triple Score: 3 Games in 1 in the United States, is a compilation initially released for the Sega Mega Drive in Europe in 1992. It was the first of three similar compilations, being followed by Mega Games 2 and Mega Games 3. The North American version shows World Championship Soccer on the packaging, although World Cup Italia '90 is included on the cartridge instead.
The PAL version was originally launched as a stand-alone release, but was later bundled with Mega Drive consoles during 1993. Bundled copies lack the barcode on the back of the box, however, the cartridge and manuals are the same.
This compilation and its subsequent entries and console bundles originated from an initiative from the president of the Spanish division of Sega Europe, Paco Pastor, in a visit to Sega's headquarters in Japan to explain the proposal to Hayao Nakayama. The Spanish entrepreneur had previous experience of success with this same marketing tactic of bundling games for cheap while running Erbe Software.
