Early Ariolasoft / Sega booklet
Post Posted: Tue Mar 11, 2008 10:37 pm
This cost me more than it should so I hope you guys like it. I think it could be the 1st European Sega booklet. Its got a few interesting bits in it.

Translations done by schlingel.














The gaming computer without limitations.

This is the heart of the sega master system: the SEGA power base. The Sega power base is a computer: with 128 K RAM and 128 K ROM. It is the player for the SEGA Card and the SEGA Cartridge. It is the device for the Light Phaser and the Grafik Board.

You can connect it to every RGB-monitor. And with the RF-Switchbox you can connect your Sega Power Base at the same time with the antenne.

To the Sega Power Base there belong the SEGA Control pads. With those you have the right control over your games. To the basic equipment there belong the SEGA Power Base, two Control pads, RF-Switchbox and the power supply. All together for 299 DM. And now the best thing: The first 10000 buyers get the Sega Card game "Hang On" for free. And an other great thing: The Sega power base has a guarantee of one year!!

The programmed insanity goes hunting:

The Sega Light phaser is the right extension for the Sega Power base. Because with it you have even more action on your tv screen. Thanks to the great electronics assembly you can activly engage to the game. Press the trigger- and the action starts!

The Sega Light Phaser is avaiable with three excellent hunting games: Marksman Shooting, Safari Hunt and Trap Shooting. This does only cost 169 DM.

(Enlarged from above)



Insane!- 64 colours at the push of the button.

For the Sega Power Base you can have the Grafik Board, and this is really insane!

Because finally all of you can get creative and draw everything without dragging your fingers.

Just connect the SEGA Grafik Boards to the Sega Power base and start- welcome to the world of colours. To the SEGA Grafic Boards the software that is necessary for drawing miracles of colours is included. And all together just for 199DM.













The programmed insanity is fun.

The video game system without any limitation.


The Sega Master System is a computer. it does have hardware as well as software. The hardware is the Sega Power Base , the SEGA Light Phaser and the Sega Grafik Board. And the Software are two revolutionary storage systems: the Sega Card and the Sega Cartridge.

The Sega Card: The programmed insanity part 1.
That is it, the Sega Card. It small only 5,3 x 8,5 cm. It is a little marvel. Because in it there is storage capacity of 256 K.. And this does make the game exciting and very colourfull.

The SEGA Cartridge: The programmed insanity part 2.

That is a Sega Cartridge. It is bigger than the Sega Card. And you notice it. Because its storage capacity is till 1024 K. And this does make the game to an event of the top class.







(Left side)

The world´s hardest motorbike game! Hang on is the game which is included to the first 10000 Power Base for free. And this does have a good reason: It is one of the best motorbike games that does exist. And so it is impossible to describe it. You simply have to play it!

It's the Terebi Oekaki board, nothing more. They presumably canned it because it wasn't very successful in Japan.

Either I'm blind or the one in the booklet just has a sticker on it to help with the on-screen icons, and is otherwise identical.

(Of course, they'd have to change the cartridge too.)

Well I think it's printed on.. but essentially thats the difference. It's not out of the question for one of these to turn up on German ebay one day, Would be pretty incredible if it was complete with western cartridge and packaging :)

I bring out this old man topic, to ask to you whether you intend to make available this Catalogue in the suitable heading?

Thank you

I got a few Ariolasoft brochures, the same as already posted, and a slightly different one without the black TV style border on the cover, and a different (earlier?) address on the back cover. The content inside appears to be the same.



A higher resolution scan of the Graphic Board, the commands read;

CL Clears all graphics
BA Changes background color
ER Uses CURSOR as eraser
SY Draws symmetrically
CD Clears display

And a different brochure I haven't seen before, from 1987 judging by the games featured. It features a prototype SMS on the cover;



The control pads are prototypes too, with different colour pads, and "control pad" written in the same lowercase font as "power base" on the prototype console. There's also a prototype Hang On card (no "TM" on Hang On) in the console.

This brochure seems to have formed the basis for a Swedish ad posted in this thread.

Interesting to see the upcoming Alex Kidd In Miracle World was referred to as "Miracle Land" - I'd heard this was an early title for the game but had never seen any real confirmation or evidence until now

Thanks for the share
