Sega Master System II
The Master System II, was a relaunch of the 1987 machine, and was a cost reduced version of that, it lacked the composite output, the card slot, so none of the flat cards or 3D glasses could be used, though these were no longer in production.
It had a slide opening cartridge slot, and came usually with Alex Kidd in Miracle world built in, though a much rarer Sonic the Hedgehog version was also released to coincide with the game's launch.
The system sold very well, and was priced at a low level to attract younger players, a strategy that worked better than Sega could have hoped, as those who bought this would often then go onto a Megadrive when they were older.
Sega kept up a steady supply of conversions from the Megadrive, and also introduced a budget range of carts, sales of MS software remained high into the Christmas period of 1993.
