Sega XS is a UK-based magazine by Paragon Publishing, published from June 1993 until the mid-1990s as a spin-off to the earlier Console XS. From issue 18 onwards, the magazine was renamed Sega XS Classics. Sega XS was also sold in Spain for a shorter run of 5 issues.

Unlike other magazines, Sega XS consisted entirely of walkthroughs, tips and codes. Walkthroughs comprised about two-thirds of each magazine, and were very detailed, with maps of whole levels which were constructed by splicing together dozens of screenshots. The rest of the magazine contained lists of cheats and Action Replay/Game Genie codes.
