Super Famicom, also known as Super Nintendo came out in Japan in 1990 and
in America the following year, with a more powerful… well, everything.
It had much better 3rd party support and more games being
developed for it. It did have one problem…
By 1993 with
Genesis sales slumping Sega needed to find something; something new. So in late
1993 they released Sega CD.
Sega Saturn was
released in early 1995 amid speculation by the gaming public and was one of the
first consoles to have high resolution 3D graphics and full Stereo Sound. But,
it failed to catch on. Sony’s Playstation and Nintendo’s Nintendo 64 soon
surpassed it in sales and the Saturn was just another footnote in video game
128-Bit console, The Katana. The Katana, whose name was later changed to the
Dreamcast, had better graphics and sound than any console before it.
