    It's actually Stevie's Sega Saturn if I'm not mistaken, not Malcolm.

    <!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->Geesh, I don't remember properly. As I said above, it was way too long ago.


    Also, there's an episode of Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi that is entirely centered around a Sega Mega Drive, and the two of them even run up loops and roll down hill in a place that simulate Green Hill Zone in that episode.

    The GHZ reference starts at 4:28, but I can't see the MD...

    Oh my, it appears that our little Asuka is friends with a pirate! Look at the Winning Fighter Disk - looks suspiciously like a blank CD with writing on it!

    Also, there's another moment in Evangelion - in the episode where Nerv has to siphon power from Japan, Kensuke and Toji are playing a Sega Saturn when the message is broadcast on TV.

    None at the moment I'm afraid.
    The motion picture The Lost World: Jurassic Park has a Sega reference in it at the beginning.
    Malcom's daughter Kelly stresses her dislike for her aunt that Malcom forces her to stay with and excliams "She doesn't even have Sega!"

    From Can Can Bunny ep 4.

    Also, on the Maliki animation, I recall them using a Megadrive.

    Evangelion was Sega sponsored, as I recall, thats why the Saturn appeared so often. There were also a bajillion Saturn eva games.

    This was true for Death, Rebirth and the End of Evangelion. The original tv series wasn't sponsored, as far as I know, and if it was, the product placement would have been explicitly Sega, rather than "Seca". And there wasn't a bajillion, maybe 4 or 5 (and another 3 on Dreamcast)

    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->It's actually Stevie's Sega Saturn if I'm not mistaken, not Malcolm.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    I remember this quite vividly. Malcolm was bemoaning how out-of-date the Saturn was. I think it was the first time I was made to feel old.

    Right, there were only 5. I was confusing it with the Gundam stuff.

    I think Malcolm was referring to how the games were too "childish" for him, not necessarily how old the system was.

    Welp, this.
    Actually, I may be able to do a page on Sega references in popular music:

    Del the Funkee Homosapien - Proto Culture
    311 - Brodels
    Viktor Vaughn - Let Me Watch
    Lupe Fiasco - I Gotcha
    Lupe Fiasco - Go Go Gadget Flow
    Pavement - Robyn Turns 26
    We Are Scientists - Altered Beast
    Notorious B.I.G. - Juicy
    Notorious B.I.G. - Think Big
    Goodie Mob - Cell Therapy
    Asher Roth - Cannon
    Limp Bizkit - Jump Around
    Lady Sovereign - Those Were the Days
    Jay-Z - You're Only a Customer (More flavor than y'all can image havin'/ graphic like Sega Saturn :colbert:)

    There's probably more than that, no less.

    This video from about 1:50 has a bunch of dreamcast games on screens in the background (JSR, Shenmue, Space Channel 5, Samba De Amigo, maybe others). I recall seeing this back when the video came out lol. The video is chock full of product placement mind, so it's no real surprise.

    In an episode of Rosanne, DJ wants a Super Nintendo for christmas and both his parents and grandmother gets him one. So Dan hooks the one that they bought him up in their garage, and Mark says "Oh is this like that new game that just came out, the one with the hedgehog in it?" I can't recall what season the episode aired.

    In the original Evangelion series, when Asuka gets all depressed and hangs out at Hikari's to avoid going home, she plays a "Seca" all day. The design of the console is pretty much a Saturn.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
