I don't think the Saturn's fortunes change too much in this scenario. The main problem the system had was a lack of good games, especially first party games. The Saturn actually had a killer app in Japan early on which was Virtua Fighter. Consequently, the Saturn did fairly well in Japan. It didn't do well in the rest of the world, because they didn't have a game that other regions considered a killer app. What they really needed was a great Sonic game. A more interesting alternate reality would be if Sonic Mania was released on the Saturn back in the day. In that scenario, I think the Saturn has a fighting chance.
Well, it had a stellar Japanese library but thanks to Stolar he prevented a bunch of those games from coming over. Then SOA gave one of the best games ever made and easily the best RPG ever made with Dragoon (tho the other one sucks so not a difficult feat) in the title with Saga a low print run. *bashes head into wall* Why I was so furious with Reggie late in Wii's life. No Earth Seeker. No Disaster Day of Crisis. No Zangeki no Reginleiv. No Ougon No Kizuna. And it seemed we would not get Xenoblade, The Last Story, or Pandora's Tower either. I felt Reggie had become the new Stolar. He also prevented ASH on DS from coming over because idiot focus groups said not enough guns... in an SRPG made by Mistwalker. UGH. At least 3 of those came over.
