The Oasis is the third release by Vena. It is based on the Genesis (Megadrive in outside of America) by Sega. The Oasis is the first of the second generation of consoles, and comes with 16-bit graphics and sound, making it the most advanced console at the time of release.

The Oasis' main rival is the Super TES by Ninvento. Despite having a moderately successful launch, and being released before the Super TES, the Oasis does not have a more successful marketshare than its rival console.

The Oasis was the first of its generation to achieve notable market share in continental Europe and North America, where it competed against a wide range of platforms, including both dedicated gaming consoles and home computer systems.

Industry NewsEdit

  • "Vena has announced that they will release a new gaming console in two months. The Vena Oasis comes with 16-bit graphics and sound which promises a new kind of gaming experience. Vena said at the announcement, 'The Oasis is a new start, it will be the genesis of a new generation of gaming consoles and we believe it will do very well in the market'. Some of the games already announced for the console suggest that it will appeal to more mature audiences."


Easter egg (not achievement)Edit

In industry news of Oasis, part "it will be the genesis of a new generation of gaming consoles and we believe it will do very well in the market" is a reference to real-life console, Sega Genesis.

TriviaEdit

  • The look of the Oasis is based on the second model of the Genesis.
