I rather stunned the Saturn hasn't received more votes. Sega was doing really well with the Genesis. The Saturn was very expensive compared to the ps1 and Sega never recovered. The Saturn basically killed the company.  Though I'll concede the Sega CD and 32x certainly didn't help.  Sega used to be a huge player.  

Yeah

First, what is meant by the worst console? I understand that something that was so harmful that the company failed to recover. The effects were so great that the company in question entered a considerable destructive spiral. Well, let's look at the options. So I see that the most damaging console was Saturn, which caused Sega to leave the console branches. The Dreamcast was just the result of the Saturn disaster. Where is Psvita here in this poll?

Because the Saturn wasn't a bad console. Sega made certain mistakes. But the 32x, Sega CD, Nomad, Game Gear had bigger parts on Sega's downfall than the Saturn. One could say the Saturn was a victim of Sega's circumstances. Sega had a disastrous launch...but the aforementioned add ons and systems had ruined the people's trust in Sega before the Saturn arrived.

i was a bad console. Make sega runway for hardware business 



I preferred the Wii U over the Wii.



I need to text this, I've been wondering about something for a while now. What if Microsoft are making an AI that creates its own games until it get It right and learn more about us, what we like and what we pay attention to.
Because Microsofts "live pass" program, the latest conferences have been utter shit compared to how much they've spent on new game developer team acquisitions. Who knows, today everything is possible since Facebook can manipulate people's wishes,so why couldn't Microsoft want to know what we like and learn about our cognitive abilities.

It wasn't a bad console. Had some ATG games. Sega was already in debt before the system was out for their failures during the Genesis generation with the Sega CD, 32x and their portable machines.

Disagree. Saturn conundrum make Sega bleed money. Sega Cd, 32 X is confusion and misteps, agreed. But Saturn cost to much to Sega.

Still a great console with a fantastic library and the best controller for fighting games ever made. Saturn was just another straw that helped break SEGA's back. SEGA was supporting too many consoles at once with limited funds. Even in 2019 they sell the Master System in Brazil. If SEGA listened to SEGA of America they would not have hit the fan so hard. SOA was really pushing to partner with Sony. SEGA was in talks to have Sony make the Saturn. A console is defined by its library not it's sales. Saturn had a larger and more varied library than N64. Play my Saturn about every week. There is a reason it pops up on all-time best console lists constantly through the years online. SEGA was hurting from the 32X and SCD still and supporting Genesis,32X,SCD,Pico,Master System,Saturn,Game Gear,Nomad and more in 1995. That's too much to support at once. Even remove Saturn and they are still in trouble financially.



It's a secret ballot.

But I voted for all winners.

There should definitely be a poll option for the Vita.

 Despite less sales. Vita is better than PSP and I love both. I stand by it.
