My 360 literally crashed and burned when it got the RROD.

haha and the award for the most predictable comment goes to Ms. Rick Astley. You are probably happy with that since you haven't received an award since your "Never gonna give you up" Nickelodeon Peoples Choice Award of 1986. =)

Oh and you never owned a 360 Astley, you aren't fooling anyone.

I think I'm going to "give you up" now.

Heh some of these I can easily agree with. The Saturn was a different beast than the original PS. It was a 32-bit system with an advanced 2D focus. It was only after the true 3D nature of the PS that it's limitations became apparent. After the Saturn showed that 3D graphics were possible it couldn't rival the PS in terms of 3D graphics, the next generation of advancement. Despite that, it had some truly classic games. Shining the Holy Ark, and Shining Force 3 are 2 examples of this. Unfortunately, the Saturn ultimately tanked despite a few great titles and developers focused on the original PS.

I agree with you and I think the Saturn does not belong on this list. Although the system ultimately failed, it didn't crash and burn to the level of the Jaguar, 3DO or CDI.

Heck the Saturn sold about the same as the Dreamcast and it had a longer life span, but only the Saturn is featured on the list.

I'm surprised the 3DO wasn't mentioned. I unfortunately spent a butt-load of money on one and the guys at Best Buy told me it was a popular system.... screw that
