Sega Consumer Research and Development Dept. #1 (Sega CS1) was a video game research and development division within Sega. As the name suggests, it was the first "consumer"-specific R&D department created by Sega of Japan. It was officially founded in April 1996 and headed by Makoto Oshitani.[1]

The studio garnered various members from people who worked on Panzer Dragoon, sports games, 32X titles, and also developers who worked on 8-Bit conversion of titles for the Master System and Game Gear.

In May 1999, all of Sega's internal development divisions were renamed, with CS1 becoming Sega Software R&D Dept. 6. During this transition, many developers left Sega to join the new start-ups Artoon and Land Ho!.
