The Sega Saturn is SEGA’s 5th generation gaming system. It was a 32-bit console released in November of 1994 to Japan, to North America in May of ’95, and to Europe in July of 1995. SEGA discontinued the Saturn in North America and Europe in ’98, and then they discontinued it in the year 2000 in Japan.
Sega sold 9.5 million Saturn units worldwide. There were an estimated 2 million sold in the United States, and an estimated 6 million sold in Japan. Even though it was popular in Japan, the Sega Saturn didn’t do so great in either North America nor Europe due to strong competition from the Sony PlayStation and then the Nintendo 64.
In 2009, IGN chose the Sega Saturn as the 18th of the best 25 video game console of all time (at that time.)
The Saturn gaming system boasted impressive hardware for its time, but the design proved to be a big inconvenience for developers that were used to the programming standards of that day. It had two CPUs plus six additional processors. Many of the chips and electrical components were not engineered to work together as good as they could have.
