Hardware Overview (Sega Mega-Tech)
The Sega Mega-Tech was produced by Sega in 1989. It is a cartridge-based multi-game system arcade cabinet.
The Sega Mega Tech saw a release in Asia and in PAL regions, but not in North America.
You can choose one of eight games to play from the menu.
Both the Mega-Tech and Mega Play's cartridges are not interchangeable, and both systems contain modifications to discourage arcade owners from purchasing and running cheaper retail Mega Drive cartridges instead.
The Mega-Tech can run up to only eight games, of either Sega Mega Drive or Sega Master System titles released for it.
The dedicated cabinet uses two monitors. The upper 10-inch monitor shows game information, the lower 20-inch monitor is used to display the game as normal.
