Moar import tips? Moar import tips.
Today, were going to look at a console that wasn't much of a commercial success, but it was still good console in its own right.
The Sega Saturn
The Saturn's regional lockout is fairly easy to get around compared to most other disc-based game consoles, which is great because the Saturn has a lot of games that didn't make it stateside (most of them are shmups, just so you know, but they are good).
1. Use an Action Replay 4-in-1 cartridge. These tend to go for around $40 and are fairly easy to find. These carts serve multiple purposes (obviously), such as being able to back-up save data, being used as a cheat device, expanding the amount of RAM available (similar to the N64 Expansion Pak), and most importantly, allowing you to play imported games.
2. Install a modchip. This is hard to do if you have no experience soldering, and will give you the same result as using an Action Replay, just without the extra features.
