The '''[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_System Sega Master System]''' (SMS) was an 8-bit console released by [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sega Sega] on October 20, 1985 in Japan and in September of 1986 in the US. It was retailed for $200 ($457.42 in 2018 money). It had a Zilog Z80A at 4 MHz with 8KB of RAM and 16KB of VRAM. It had a Yamaha YM2602B VDP GPU. It was designed to be a direct competitor to the [[Nintendo Entertainment System emulators|Nintendo Entertainment System]], and was technically superior to it. The Sega Game Gear was released in April of 1991 and was a competitor for the Game Boy. It had a backlet screen, color, and a nice looking design. It retailed for $149.99 ($279.61 in 2018 money). It had a Zilog Z80 CPU at 3.5 MHz with 8KB of RAM and 16KB VRAM.
 
  
There are a lot of hardware similarities between the SMS and the Game Gear (GG). Notably, SMS game cartridges can actually be played on the '''[[gametech:Sega Game Gear|Game Gear]]''' via an adapter. For this reason, most SMS emulators can also run GG games.
 
 
Internally the Master System extends Sega's older SG-1000 by adding a single new video mode; since the SG-1000 was built from the same CPU, video and audio chips as the [[ColecoVision emulators|ColecoVision]] many Master System emulators also run ColecoVision games.
