“First launched in 1985 in Japan as the SG-1000 Mark III, then renamed for its 1987 launch in Europe and America, the Master System was the first Sega console to set out and try to conquer the world. It was an 8-bit console with superior graphics to its main rival, the Nintendo Famicom/NES, but it didn’t do as well partly because Nintendo used some rather underhand tactics in the North American market that effectively locked Sega out of the console market there.

While this setup is handy, make no mistake about that, we have certain doubts about how long it will actually serve the user. Obviously, the magnet is pretty much the only thing that keeps the stylus inside, but it will lose its power with time and therefore its grip won’t be just as firm.” Read more here:
