Although I can't see the XB One selling as poorly as the Saturn, I never realised just how similar the two consoles are looking.

Microsoft are like a moth in Las Vegas at the minute and the sooner they stop chasing lights the sooner they get my pre-order.

Don't compare the two. Sega Saturn had no third party support and Sega did not have the money to secured exclusives and advertise their product. Silly comparison.

On top of that, the saturn was really difficult to develop for, made the ps3 seem like a cakewalk.

Actually, the Saturn had quite a lot of 3rd-party support from the Japanese publishers (Capcom, Konami, Hudson Soft), especially those who were heavily invested in the arcade scene.

What a waste of my time reading. Xbox One may have stumbled on to the starting line but it will pick up steam. I expect both PS4 and Xbox One to be successful next gen just like the 360 and PS3 this gen. Both consoles around the 80 million mark. That's a big win for both

Well said bubble for you.

The very first system I was offered as a choice as a kid was the playstation or the sega saturn.

I opted for the saturn, and as a kid I didn't know the difference and it was a heck of a lot of fun.

I salute the system, because without it, I wouldn't have spent half my life gaming.
