* Lamest consoles ever?

Gamedaily looks into the past, with new consoles about to arrive, and pontificates on the lamest consoles ever:

Many would rightly argue that Sega's 1995 foray into 32-bit gaming played host to several classic outings like NiGHTS and Panzer Dragoon. But from the perspective of sales performance/general popularity, Saturn stunk harder than Sonic the Hedgehog's presumably gold ring-scented droppings. First, it's revealed at annual May biz convention E3 that the unit shipped early, irking journalists and retailers (who'd received no earlier warning) that expected machines a full six months later. (The latter of whom responded by refusing to stock it...) Worse, the system promoted 2-D graphics when 3-D was the first PlayStation's biggest feature, leaving its days ironically numbered.
