Sega was founded in the year 1960. The company has been operational for almost 59 years now. The founders of the company were Richard Stewart, Martin Bromley and Irving Bromberg. The name of the company was known as Sega Enterprises after taking over Rosen Enterprises - which was an importer of coin-operated games. The company had developed its first coin-operated game with Periscope during the late 1960s. Then in the year 1969, the company was sold off to Gulf and Western Industries. Following a downturn in the arcade business during the 1980s, the company had begun to develop video game consoles as well, starting with the SG-1000 and also the Master System too, but struggled against its various competitors such as the Nintendo Entertainment System.
In the year 1984, the company's executives known as David Rosen and Hayao Nakayama had led a management buyout of the company with backing from a company known as CSK Corporation. The company had released its next console, known as the Sega Genesis or the Mega Drive outside of North America, in the year 1988. Even though it was a distant third in the country Japan, the Genesis had found significant success after the release of Sonic the Hedgehog video game in the year 1991 and also outsold its main competitor, known as the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, in the USA. Still, later onwards in the decade, the company had suffered commercial failures such as the 32X, Sega Saturn, and also the Dreamcast consoles too. In the year 2001, the company had stopped manufacturing consoles in order to become a third-party developer and also a publisher as well and was then acquired by Sammy Corporation in the year 2004. Later in the years, since taking over, the company has been more profitable. Sega Holdings Company was established in the year 2015, with Sega Corporation being renamed Sega Games Company as well and its arcade, entertainment, and also the toys divisions separated into other companies as well. Sega Sammy Holdings had announced in the year 2017 that it would be relocating its head office functions and also its domestic subsidiaries located in the Tokyo metropolitan area to Shinagawa-Ku by the year 2018. After a 70 per cent fall in profits for the the year 2018, in comparison to the previous year, even though there was a 35 per cent increase in the sale of console games and also success in its PC game business, the company had announced that it would focus on releases for its existing intellectual property instead of any new ones. The company had blamed the loss on miscalculations of the market and also having too many games under development at the same time as well. The headquarters of the company is based in Tokyo, Japan.
