Sega of America happened. They didn't bring over any of the good Japanese games that would've given it a niche chance in the system wars (Saturn crushed N64 in Japan) and as previously mentioned, they had zero third party support

then Bernie Stolar came along

combined with one of the worst launches in console history and outright terrible marketing

only if you plan on spending a lot of time on Ebay and spending more money than you thought you would

Sega Saturn's are a big collector's item right now, with the best American and Japanese games going from $20-$200

I don't even want to speculate on how much I've spent buidling up my Saturn library, but I have dozens of Japanese Saturn games in nearly mint condition along with a US and an 2nd edition white Japanese Saturn (those are badass...even got the matching white 3-D controller and the all-black Stunner)
