Ben Heck Dissects Rare Sega Pluto Prototype

Ben Heck recently had a chance to inspect and repair a rare Sega Pluto Prototype.  It appears to have mostly standard Sega Saturn internals, with a few extras such as a modem and a hard drive.

There’s still many unanswered questions though:  What was the hard drive used for?  Did it have the extra ram integrated to play RAM cart games, or was that still a required external option?  Did it come with the hardware for VCD movies built in?

A video with much more questions than answers, but if you’re a fan of the Sega Saturn, try to concentrate on the hardware aspects of the video, for a glimpse of a rare console revision!
