Saturn consoles in Central and Eastern Europe

From Sega Retro

After the successful sale of Mega Drive in this region, the next step was to promote the new Sega Saturn console. Also, distributors from this region were optimistic about the new console to such an extent that they started importing consoles from Asia in the spring of 1995. This was done in the CIS countries and the Czech Republic, where official distributors began selling consoles in limited quantities during this period.

The console was presented officially in this region for the first time around August 1995 in Hungary and later it appeared and local distributors in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in December 1995. In the rest of the countries, sales began in May 1996 but in some regions such as Poland, console was available a little earlier.

Despite many attempts, Saturn was defeated by PlayStation. The main reason for this was the practical lack of pirated and cheap software that made the Mega Drive and PlayStation popular. Around 1997, a local pirate managed to create the first pirate copies of games for Saturn in Russia, but Sega had already started ditching the console in favor of the new Dreamcast.
