Sega Channel Exhibit at the National Videogame Museum
Frisco’s National Videogame Museum has opened a new rotating
exhibit: The History of Sega Channel. Created in collaboration with collector Ray Vasquez, this new Limited-Time-Only exhibit chronicles the history of Sega’s 1994 on-demand gaming network with prototypes, memorabilia, promotional
items, and more.
The Sega Channel was a subscription service that gamers with
a Sega Genesis console could use to download full games, demos, or even access exclusive codes for their favorite games. The service ran from 1994 to 1998 and was instrumental in popularizing the concept of fully digital gaming, a strong example of Sega’s early innovation.
This limited-time exhibit features a modified Sega Channel
unit that allows users to cycle through the menus and get a feel for what the Sega Channel experience was like. In addition, the museum curators sourced the prototype cartridge of an unreleased Sega Channel game called Klondike Solitaire. Klondike Solitaire was programmed by legendary Activision programmer
David Crane and published by Skyworks Technologies.
The Sega Channel exhibit will be available during normal
business hours at the National Videogame Museum through September 30, 2019.
Cost: $10 - $12
