An impressive collection of classic Sega hardware and memorabilia is on display this week in Moscone West during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
The Genesis Development Station, seen here, was a laboratory for the Sega Genesis developer, and featured the ability to transfer NTSC or PAL binary files back and forth between computer and console.
The Sega CD was an add-on device for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis video game console which attached a CD-ROM drive to the system, allowing the user to play CD-based games and providing additional hardware functionality.
The Treamcast was an unauthorized third-party developed Dreamcast modification which used original Sega parts modified from an original Dreamcast system and rebuilt into this more portable model with a fold-down display.
The Typing of the Dead was a Sega Dreamcast game from 2001. A successor to The House of the Dead 2, Sega's 1998 light gun arcade game, The Typing of the Dead replaced the gun accessory with a computer keyboard.
The player roamed zombie-infested Venice, quickly typing letters, words, and phrases in order to kill the undead.
