This guy sure is and who can blame him?

Every Saturn release. I can't read Japanese so I don't know if this also includes fan games or variations or anything like that. I assume it must as he says 1057 games.

The Saturn collector extraordinaire, sgΛ answered that last question saying that one of the hard-to-get games was Pro Shinan Mahjong Tsuwamono and the other two were secret.
JP version of Scorcher and Denpa Shounenteki Game 2.

All I see is Japanese games. Correct me if Iím mistaken, but Iím pretty sure there are at least several titles that were only in the western market.

I figured that 3 Dirty Dwarves and Soviet Strike might be on that list.

It was recalled before release, I believe. I've seen 1 copy in 10 years, and it got swiped by a reseller who then tried selling it for 20x the price he bought it for.

I think Denpa Shounenteki Game 2 had the same fate too - I've never seen it for sale, but I've seen it in some collections, so copies exist.

It appears that Three Dirty Dwarves was pretty rare in Japan. It sells for a pretty hefty price.

Only 258 Saturn Games Were Released in the U.S. While Japan Saw 1,265 Games Released! So this guy up there, he most likely doesn't have the variants, satakore & limited editions. Don't tell him or he will go nuts.

I'm sure it depends on which way you count them, no point in having some games twice or three times because they had three releases.

That's a fantastic feat.

Did the US get the lowest release quantity? I thought PAL was in the hundreds? Saturn was one of the last Sega consoles I started collecting, 131 PAL games and counting. To get the full set and be able to display it - amazing.

Hey Zyrobs, small world after all.

Are you referring to the copy of Scorcher which was sold for $400 on ebay by Hit-Japan ? link :

And do you know what finally happen to that copy ? I do have 20x the price (well, lets say 2x the price) it was sold for to buy it now ;)

Yeah, that's the one. The buyer tried selling it for thousands of dollars. Maybe not 20x but 10x the price, I don't remember exactly.

Yeah, that resale happened on ebay too. I checked my records, the guy tried selling it for $5000.

Nice keeping track of this, any chance you know the ebay name of the reseller ?
Would have been a good profit.

That's a pretty awesome sight. Just got my Saturn, so my collection is five boxed US games and a loose copy of Baku Baku that came with the console lol
