It had a few of the more popular arcade games at the time, such as; Virtua Fighter, Virtua Racing and Star Wars Arcade. However, the Sega Model 2 arcade board was released only one year later and in the end, had a vastly larger library of games. It had an NEC V60 at 16 MHz with 1936KB of RAM.

- MAME is the first and only emulator capable of running Sega Model 1 games. See MAME driver at GitHub.
- Modeler was an early attempt at Sega Arcade emulation. It is capable of running Sega System 32 and Sega System 32 Multi. Sega Model 1 emulation never advanced to playable status. The team working on this emulator is also involved in MAME and the plan was all along to use the knowledge gained while creating this emulator to later implement it as a MAME driver.
