Sega Corporation, usually styled as SEGA, is a multinational video game software, a hardware development company, and a home computer and console manufacturer, headquartered in Ōta, Tokyo, Japan. The company had success with both arcades and home consoles, but restructured itself, and left the consumer console business to concentrate on software development for multiple third-party platforms on January 31, 2001.

Sega was founded in 1940 as Standard Games (later Service Games) in Honolulu, Hawaii, United States, by Marty Bromely, Irving Bromberg, and James Humpert, to provide coin-operated amusements for American servicemen on military bases. Bromely suggested that the company move to Tokyo, Japan in 1951, and in May 1952 "SErvice GAmes of Japan" was registered.
