Except that it is in Brazil. At the beginning of the thriving home video game industry, with the exception of Sega, many console manufacturers have ignored Brazil. Rather than ignoring the nascent market, Sega promoted the main system in force and the Brazilians fell in love with it – so in love with him that the relationship never deteriorated.

The system has been in continuous production in Brazil since 1989 and, although it has undergone some minor modifications and cosmetic modifications, the bowels of the machine are largely unchanged.
