Almost 20 years ago, on December 3rd, 1994, the original PlayStation took the Japanese market by storm, but it wasn’t alone. Just a few days earlier, on November 22nd, Sega released its own console: the Sega Saturn.
Now Sega is out of the console race, but didn’t miss the chance to remember both anniversaries on Twitter, wishing PlayStation a happy birthday, also sharing a picture of something not many know about.

It’s Sega Saturn’s 20th anniversary and PlayStation’s 20th anniversary. Actually, we even released a PlayStation 2 controller in this shape. Congratulations for PlayStation’2 20th Anniversary!
Now the old rivalry is gone, but I still remember the good old times in which it was still going strong. The console war already existed 20 years ago, even if it was a lot less heated than it is now, and probably more fun.
