Classic SEGA Ads: The Saturn takes on the N64’s itty-bitty library

If you asked me to make a list of what characteristics define the SEGA of the 90s, at the top of the list would undoubtably be “mocking the competition”. In an era where Nintendo was the family friendly choice, SEGA’s decision to be the rowdy cool kid in town who wasn’t afraid to shake things up and shit talk the competition got people’s attention. During the Genesis era, this sort of practice paid off. The Genesis made SEGA a household name in North America, and the company reigned supreme in the early 90s. However, due to unsuccessful launches of the 32X and Saturn, SEGA slipped in the market and in turn, attack ads like the one above lost much of its bite. Regardless, SEGA soldiered on with such ads, attacking the Playstation in claiming its single processor can’t handle a game like NiGHTS into Dreams and stating that the Saturn kicked Pretendo’s ass when it came to the respective console libraries.


A N64 in my Game Gear?

A modder, by the name of Evil Nod has put a Nintendo 64 into a Game Gear skeleton. Not only did he get the N64 in there, he also got the controller. So it has full reworking controller and a N64 crammed in there. What else could he shove in? How about a ram expansion pak? Yeah, he put one of those in there too.

Now, can someone do the same thing, with a Dreamcast? That would rock.
