The Video Entertainment Center is a video game console "organiser" for the Sega Mega Drive, manufactured by A.L.S. Industries.

The Video Entertainment Center is effectively a decorated piece of plastic (with a transparent plastic lid), shaped for easy storage of a Mega Drive (model 1) console, sixteen game cartridges (and manuals), a Power Base Converter, controllers and various leads. It was designed as an easier way of storing the console when not in use, however needs to be discarded if the user wishes to play a game, as it does not provide adequate space for inserted controllers and leads. It also pre-dates bigger peripherals such as the Sega Mega-CD and Sega 32X.

The Video Entertainment Center was not released outside of North America. A.L.S. Industries also released a similar product for the Nintendo Entertainment System
