    3rd time I'm saying that I got lower numbers because I made a mistake initially, are you skipping over my posts or what?

    It was a method good enough for military intelligence.
    You and your friends having many of them doesn't mean anything, the C+4 and C16 and even the CDTV was extremely common in my area but they...

    That's precisely what I had in mind when counting the serials. The 19 million came out as 12.5m C64s and 5.7m C128s by the way.

    The interlaced modes run 60fps, but interlaced. Which some people translate to 30fps but this is not correct - it runs 60fps but only updates half the lines on the screen per frame.

    The serials all start from 0 and progress in a linear fashion in all but a handful of odd cases, and there's a formula for computing the most likely total number from those (German tank problem). I...

    I'm saying that I'm doing statistical analysis on the serial numbers and the values don't match up the reported sales.

    However I did my analysis based on the assumption that the same manufacturing...

    Sorry, I meant the "5.6 million in japan by 1998 March" figure, not the picture.
  8. This figure is far closer to the one I get from...

    This figure is far closer to the one I get from the serials. Even if you add in the estimated PAL and USA sales, you'd get something between 7-8 million. Also note that Saturn production virtually...

    I would not be surprised in the least if the Sega numbers were inflated - just a tiny bit. You've got to look good in front of shareholders after all.

    Just to follow up on this, I counted the serials again and got around 6.7 million (this is combining normal consoles, Victor and Hitachi special units, and refurbished units too). This is NOT an...

    The 8.8 million could not have been true for japan only, last time I checked the serials, I got a way lower number.

    The recent-ish interview with Hideki Sato says that things were the other way around: Sega was losing so much money manufacturing the Saturn, that they had to lower the manufacturing numbers to curb...

    I remember talking to the guy who had a backup of the cd image used in the Saturn devkits (the Virtual CD interface). I should try to ask him around again...

    The small metal bracket is to reinforce the hole in the back where you can attach the Modem. Incidentally it's also a great spot for a region switch, although it becomes more difficult to store the...

    I recall Xebra being the most accurate but I don't know if that still holds up.



    No, that had nothing to do with it. Yabause was open source for a decade and fuck-all advancements were made in...

    Yup, I remember Trident a lot too. The dizzy projectile was a fireball, and he could spin his trident around to do 30% damage. He had these strange cartwheel kicks too.
    Xavier also had great moves,...

    There were certain moves that required inner strength and used up inner strength, but you seemed to be able to do them any time even if you had no IS left. Or at least that was the case with some of...

    Yeah I remember being impressed about that trick. Was there any other Saturn game to use that though? They could've made something like Virtua Fighter handle both the ring as well as the ground...

    Oh this is wonderful news. I was worried that the recent PD Remake would just be the umpteenth re-release of the first game while Zwei gets forgotten again.

    Remaking PD Saga is a tall order,...

    Hilarious car names (Testosterando GT, hahaha). But I think the game is going too far in the synthwave pink n purple colour scheme. Outrun was far more colourful.

    No, they were mismanaged for 100s of other reasons, being slower to manufacture CDs was just the reality of the situation that they couldn't do anything about.

    Eh, no, Sony was the Apple of the hi-fi world in the 90s. It's one of the reasons why the Playstation was such a big deal.

    As for Sega being mismanaged, I thought that was established and widely...

    Sony also had connections to a certain huge Japanese company. You could say it was a pretty close connection. As if they were one and the same, in fact.
