SEGA Pluto prototype shown off by former SEGA employee

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.
