A former Sega employee revealed the existence of the Pluto, a scrapped Sega console that merged the Sega Saturn and Netlink into one unit, a few days ago. The guy who revealed the Pluto to the world said that his unit was one of only two prototypes ever produced, and today the owner of the second Pluto unit came forward.
Unlike the owner of the first Pluto console, the guy who owns the second Pluto isn’t a former Sega employee: he says he found his ultra-rare prototype console at a flea market and bought it for a dollar. While his Pluto isn’t in as good condition as the unit we first saw a few days ago (pictured above) — the mechanism that locks the lid in place is broken — the unit is still fully functional, and the owner says he plans to put the system up on eBay soon. Considering the rarity of the console, I think it’s safe to say that he’s probably going to get a lot more than the $1 he originally paid for the system.
Now if you excuse me, I’m going to visit every swap meet and flea market in my area.
