Sega Master System
Success and unsuccess:
Most popular years: 1987-1988
Sega Master System was Sega's response to NES from Nintendo. Sega wanted to take part from the US market that time, but it wasn't very successful attempt (90% of the market was taken by NES and the rest 10% was divided between SMS and Atari Lynx). A bit bigger success it had in Europe, especially in UK, because it had still a bit better hardware than NES.
Games and music info:
Most common media for storing games: Cartridge
Emulators are in good state, though some of the games still don't work. Emulators mostly emulate not only SMS, but also Game Gear (sega's handheld with very similar hardware as SMS) and SG-1000/SC-3000/SC-3000H (these are computers and are predecessors of SMS distributed in Japan)
This emulation info was written on 19.December 2002. (This time is very important, because emulation info very depends on the time it was written - emulators can improve a lot after this time..).
