Sega 32x

Sega 32x image

The Sega 32x is a hardware add-on for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. Placed into the top of the console's cartridge slot, the 32x expanded the overall processing power of the Mega Drive/Genesis to bring it up to speed with the 32-bit generation of video games.

Even though the 32x was released for quite a low price and it's reputation was positive before release, it is often considered one of Sega's biggest failures. This was mainly due to bad release timing and also the very small amount of games that actually released for this hardware revision.
