Why the Saturn Was the Worst Console of All Time

Don Reisinger writers:

"What about the worst console of all time? Surely, we can pick from a number of systems like the 3DO, 32X, Sega CD and a host of others, but what about major consoles? Even though these were released to the masses, the 3DO was nothing more than an overpriced proof-of-concept that never had a chance and the two Sega add-ons were a bridge to the Saturn."

Pfft no way...there's been far worse consoles than the Saturn

"More than anything else, the Sega Saturn should be considered the worst major console of all time for one reason -- it was the catalyst that ultimately led to a series of events that brought one of the foremost hardware companies to its knees."

I wouldn't blame that on the Saturn necessarily...Sony and Nintendo just gained the support and Sega was never able to fend off their competition in any generation. They were on top in their generation only when their systems came out first, and that was the Genesis and Dreamcast both getting head starts and doing well when the competition didnt bring their next hardware out...not to mention Dreamcast couldn't even fight off the PS1 before the PS2 came out. But I repeat...there's been FAR worse consoles than the Saturn

Remembering 3DO, suddenly that article loses much of its credibility.

many worse systems *gizmondo* and the saturn had some truely amazing games.

If you have play Panzer Dragoon Saga, Virtua Fighter 2, Shining Force III or Nights, you don't say that Saturn is the worst console ever.

The truth is that Saturn is the great unknown, but not the worst console.

PDS is still one of my favorite RPGs of all time, it pisses me off that Sega has abandoned the series since Orta.

No way Saturn was worse than the 3DO or Jaguar. I think the Sega hardware brand squandered all of it's good will with the lame Sega CD and 32x add-ons to the Genesis(Megadrive) and the Saturn had to pay the price for it.

It was never released to the general public. So there's no way of knowing for sure.
