The Sega 1000 is the only jukebox that I know of that Sega designed and manufactured itself. The business involved distributing Rock-Ola products in Japan, so whatever Rock-Ola built in the 60s and 70s... probably made it to Japan in some form (the parts were made in Chicago, but were assembled in Tokyo or Osaka or wherever).

There's this blurry scan from somewhere that lists some of the products Sega sold... at some point in history:

but other than that I can't say. I started making a list a few years ago but it's tricky because the only clues Sega were involved are a few labels on the back of the unit.

Sega announced all sorts of movie tie-ins in 1983. Most were cancelled before development even began.

Looks like they jumped the gun and made some merchandise though. Friday the 13th was meant to be released for the Atari 2600, but this badge is all that Sega got out. I would guess it's from Winter CES 1983, but who knows.

If anyone wants to look for physical evidence of the planned Airplane! game, I just want to say, good luck - we're all counting on you.

Yes, Winter CES 1983, I think their first show. I'll upload the rest of these when I can convert them to PDFs with Acrobat, there seemed to be an issue when I used a Linux app.

Edit: I see on the Summer CES 1983 page that the Bally Midway games Tapper, Spy Hunter, and Up 'n' Down are listed, but no sources. I suspect that these are from a different show (probably summer 1984) as the 1983 show was before Bally Midway bought Sega Electronics, and I haven't seen any mention of those games until 1984.

Just to inform... it looks that arcade board collector ShouTime dumped a China arcade bootleg of Bare Knuckle 3... that's all I know about it...

Now the real question is: Is the ROM set a bootleg, or is that bootleg hardware? Speaking of, has this "clonebergh" been documented before?

Shenmue (and its sequel) let you play arcade games. There's Space Harrier and Hang-On and a few other arcade-like distractions which were assumed to have been made up just for the game.


I mean surely a game like "QTE Title" must have been made up, right?






Not quite.

It's actually based on something - Big Title which is so unbelievably rare I'm not sure even the Shenmue community is on top of this one. Couldn't possibly tell you what the story is, but it seems a company known as "Togo" was partly responsible, which might explain the name change.

Unfortunately it's all a pack of lies. Shenmue takes place in 1986, whereas according to this flyer, Big Title wasn't released until at least 1989.

Was reading an article about how the Yakuza 6's demo could be glitched into further game and someone in the comments says that the Dreamcast Chu Chu Rocket demo release was the full single-player mode. Do we have any evidence of this and can it be documented?
