Master System III

The Master System III was released in 2003 by Brazilian toy manufacturer Tec Toy. It is exclusive to the Brazilian market where it is still a popular system. Externally the console is the same as the Master System II apart from the colour, which is a very light grey instead of being dark grey.

In fact the Master System III is still on sale to this day. The current version, Master System 3 - 120 Super Jogos Na Memória, comes with 120 games built in.

We need more info about this console ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.

ive heard rarly of a sega system 3 compact with power-base on it if still alive. where? the other one with alex kid (normal and super) doesnt sort of play ands in amber color while the sonic base probably is in blacks and whites. good to note and have done before this.

Interesting to note that this version of the Master System was packaged with six button controllers similar to the ones that were made for the Genesis a decade prior. Which makes me wonder if they''re compatible with a Sega Genesis....
