Education yourself. History of the Sega Saturn In part 532094 of "the internet is wrong", I've been working on this page for a couple of weeks. There's Dreamcast and Mega Drive ones too, but they're not as fancy (a.k.a. this Saturn page has so many references that it can break the server). I thought you might want to know/improve it. Because I'm horrendously biased and determined to prove a point, I set out to rectify this idea that the Sega Saturn was a horrible failure that killed people. Fundementally it is still a failure, but not any more than the GameCube seems to have been compared to the PS2. Japan in particular is a really interesting case study - it honestly seems that it took until Final Fantasy VII to tip the market in Sony's favour - that's pretty significant I think. The situation in Europe isn't quite as terrible either - not great, but perfectly "reasonable" given the circumstances. When we see these stupid AVGN-generation lists of crappy video game consoles, I don't think the Saturn belongs on them - the situation is not nearly as bad as has been made out in recent years. There's no saving the 32X though.
