Sega Visions
[ Publisher: Sega of America | Price: $3.50 | Format: Sega Consoles ]
Seeing the success of Nintendo Power, Sega of America decided to create their own propaganda-laced magazine. How did it compare? Find out in today's episode of 29 Magazines of Christmas.



Excerpt: First released in June of 1990, Sega Visions promised a "New Generation" of magazine for anybody interested in the same kind of content found in pretty much every other magazine on the newsstand. Published six times a year, each issue ran between 60 to 150 pages and featured the usual news, reviews, previews and hints format found in other magazines of the time. While not original, this was one of the few places fans of the Genesis, Master System and Game Gear could go without being reminded that everybody loves Nintendo.

On Tomorrow's Episode: Come back tomorrow when we'll take a look at Incite Video Gaming, a not-so-subtle mix of video games and celebrity culture. Did this odd pairing pay off? Find out when you experience tomorrow's episode of 29 Magazines of Christmas. Still want more? Don't forget to check out last year's 29 Questionable Power-Ups of Christmas.
