    I heard some of the games like The Castle were or will be in Steam. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Meh, it's a Kohler article. It comes across more as a Nintendo praise piece than anything else.

    It's terrible how he looks at everything as being in terms of Nintendo.

    it had the bad luck to be released in the same month as Nintendo’s world-changing Famicom
    I also don't like how the competitive marketing of the SG-1000 against the Famicom is referenced as a matter of "luck." We all know how deliberate console releases are. It's not like the SG-1000 just happened to be released the same month as the Famicom. Luck had nothing to do with it.
    It's (falsely?) reported that the SG-1000 was test marketed in 1981, if that is accurate then Sega was sitting on the SG-1000 and pushed it to market to enter with Nintendo. Who knows what the business histories are behind these decisions? But there's a whole lot more to it than just "bad luck." That's lazy journalism, if not simply irresponsible. The actual histories and significance of some of these consoles and games are in danger of being forever distorted by the commercial obsession of Sega vs Nintendo.

    Some hardcore SMS folks have looked into it, and so far no one's come up with any solid evidence of a 1981 test market. I think it may be bogus.

    I was thinking about re-casting the SG-1000 cartridge shells, re-creating original style labels for games that were in Taiwan like Rally-X and such, and maybe (if even remotely possible) re-create the circuit boards, and use EPROMS for game data.
