A former SEGA employee has posted shots and information on something called SEGA Pluto, which was SEGA Saturn with internal Netlink. According to a forum poster on Assembler Games called Super Magnetic, Pluto was “the heaviest console,” he’d ever held and it featured: “two controller ports, and on top you have a flip-top drive bay, a cart slot, a Power button, and the venerable Reset button.” The poster notes Pluto may have been the codename for the Saturn console, and only two prototypes of this particular version were created. Thanks, D’toid.

Sega’s sent over a link to a Panorama page on the Total War wiki, on which it posts staggeringly enormous screenshots. If you’d like to look at a landscape lovingly rendered in-engine and then pieced together into a 30000 x 9785 pixel image, that is a thing you can do. Total War: Rome 2 comes out on PC later this year and none of you have monitors big enough for anything approaching this level of image quality.
