SG-1000 SG-1000 (Sega Game 1000 or Mark I) MESS System Driver sg1000 is a 8-bit video game console by Sega, released in 1983 in Japan. It was released as the Famicom's concurrent, but the system didn't have enough power and sales to compete with Famicom, and it goes to the hole of minor-hardware league, like the Cassette Vision, Pyutta and the Vectrex.
