The Pleasure and the Pain

1UP have a nice article that explains what went wrong with the Sega Saturn.

CEO of Sega of America - Tom Kalinske - took the stage first and shocked the entire videogame world by informing everyone that the Saturn's launch date was, in fact, that day. Systems and a handful of games had been shipped to retailers nationwide and would go on sale that morning with an MSRP of $399.99. This was four months earlier than the "official" release date of Sept. 2.

excellent article. I love the history of these consoles. I currently own most of the major aussie releases from Atari 2600 onwards.
