It wasn’t that bad
It wasn't that good.
It wasn’t that bad
It's was SEGA's SAD TURN!
>what if we made a console out of the SegaCD
Basically this. It was a merge of the CD and 32X. It wasn't even designed with 3D graphics as priority
especially considering the segacd came out what? 3 months before the saturn?
3 years, not 3 months.
You're thinking of the 32X.
Then tell me what the good games are. I never had one.
Already played Lunar (un-worked) on PS1.

Saturn was swimming in games
why did it sink then?
Sega told the entire game industry and stores they would release the console in September, but launched it in June
It did okay in Japan. Why it failed in the rest of the world is well documented and there's like 40 youtube videos on it. The tldr is shit marketing and giving retailers LESS THAN ZERO time to get ready for it.
Also, the market switched to 3d and the saturn was made as a 2d power house. Most of their plans went out of the window last minute.
Reviewers at the time also hated 2d games.
Bad launch, bad marketing, overpriced. Things like that. Not for lack of quality titles.
Marketing was great in Japan.
playstation was better
Iron Storm is fun.
>best version of a bunch of games
It was the best Sega console, and miles better than the N64.
Still didn't come close to the PC Engine, though. Now THAT was a console.
>It was the best Sega console, and miles better than the N64.
i had this as my first console of that gen. quite literally no games.
It was really good but poorly priced and marketed. Today owning one is a treasure, and there is a very large library you can access at virtually no costs. Almost everything on it is exclusive to that hardware too, so you'll find a ton of games that you've never heard of that are right up your alley.
GUARDIAN HEROES SHOULD HAVE BEEN NUMBER ONE
I got surprised by how many hidden gems it has. Few "big" games though.
It survived the playstation
It's more that can be said about the other 10+ cd rom consoles and commodore
Without the retarded surprise launch, they probably would be just fine
It was a great console....if you know nip.
in some ways vita was a hollow echo of it
Only if you were Japanese. The system was set up to fail overseas
They need to make a Saturn mini. I would buy the shit out of that.
too expensive for now
I went to school in the mid 90s, I knew maybe one kid with one of these. Meanwhile, every kid had an N64 or a PlayStation. I was an idort, I had NES, SNES, Genesis, N64, PlayStation, and later even a Dreamcast but even I didn't have a Saturn. Nobody did.
The saturn controller is godlike so it gets a pass from me.
Having 6 face buttons is an underrated layout.
When the vast majority have to pick 1 out of 2 or 3, being not bad does not cut it. You have to be the best.
Anybody got that image of curated games to play on it, was kino
My personal favorite console from that gen.
The library is better than the N64's
