A brief history of the console wars in pictures

Business Week gives a brief history in pictures of the 30-year old console war from the Magnavox Odyssey to Nintendo's Wii spanning a total of 21 notable platforms. Regarding one casualty of war -- the Sega Saturn released in April of 1995 for $400 -- the article reminisces: "The powerful, but complex multiprocessor design made it difficult for developers to make quality games for the Saturn. Even so, several memorable titles were developed for the system, including Panzer Dragoon, Virtual-On, and Virtua Fighter 2 ... Despite its merits, the Saturn sold a dismal 1.4 million units in the U.S. during its short lifespan."
NiGHTS was where it's at.

The story is too old to be commented.
