Intro to the Sega Saturn

Having not purchased a new gaming console for quite a while, I was pretty excited about the debut of the Sega Saturn. It seemed like it could be the next big thing. Dual 32 bit processors sounded good, right?

So I went out and dropped $400 on this fucking clunker. The Genesis was popular and I should have known that Sega was racing downhill ever since, but this somehow eluded me and I became a Saturn owner.

Virtua Fighter was pretty cool... alas it quickly met its demise as the Playstation emerged as the dominant console.

Sega Saturn - Technical Specifications

The Sega Saturn is a 32-bit video game console that was first released on November 22, 1994 in Japan, May 11, 1995 in North America, and July 8, 1995 in Europe. The system was discontinued in North America, Europe, and Australia in 1998, and in 2000 in Japan. While it was popular in Japan, the Saturn failed to gain a similar market share in North America and Europe against Sony's PlayStation and the Nintendo 64, its main competitors.

According to a July 2007 GamePro article, the Saturn sold 9.5 million units worldwide. In 2009, video game website IGN chose the Saturn to be their 18th best video game console of all time, out of 25.
