    Default Sega Arcade history and consumer history books on ebay!

    These fairly rare books now on ebay for a scant $10 each.


    Considering that the Fami-complete book recently went for $168 it might be a good idea to pick these gems up as they IMO are far better than Fami-complete.

    I think this is the one in question I'd love one of these myself but cannot afford it right now (plus being in the UK makes it a little akwards too ^-^ )

    But does that include every Sega home console & game from the SG1000 to the Dreamcast (2700+ items in all)?

    I think not

    The photos and screen-shots in both books are absolutely incredible!!! It blows High Score out of the water IMHO.

    I have a special fondness for the consumer one in particular. I sit and drool over the limited edition dreamcast photos every now and then. It has photos of all limited edition Sega consoles. From the boom-box Sega MD CD combo to the Divers Dreamcast.

    The checklist towards the end listing all the games released on Sega formats is massive and sadly all in Japanese. I wonder if someone has done a translation..........

    I thought about picking both of those books up from an eBay seller a while back, but they were $25-$30 each, and I didn't think I could justify spending that much dough on some books. They look really cool, however.

    Is the arcade one rarer than the consumer one??

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MESE%3AIT&rd=1

    the consumer one which IMHO is far better than the arcade one is only at $10 while the arcade one is pushing $50???

    Well I wanted them both but since I just bought some porn I decided to pass on the consumer book. That arcade book just kept calling my name and I couldn't let it go to someone who would not cherish it. I'll put it on the shelf in between the 2 DP guides. Thanks for the heads up on the book too.
