Sega Saturn to be re-released...

Yes, you read the title correctly. The Saturn, one of Sega's best-loved consoles, is going back into production over a decade after it was officially axed. You'll have a hard time trying to play games on it though, as it is in bag form!

Sorry to disappoint you there, but via Enterbrain's Sega Store you can buy this delicious Saturn-shaped bag. The cartridge slot and CD tray act as pockets, and there is a drinks holder on the side. The main compartment is big enough to hold an A4 magazine apparently, and has two shoulder straps on the back.

"Help! Daytona USA's not working!"

The bag only comes in grey with blue "buttons", the colours of the Japanese console. It costs ¥7,140, which is about £50. That much for a tiny rucksack? NoThankYou.jpg. You could always get the Mega Drive tote bag instead, which is £20 cheaper and is probably more stylish.

Can we have a Dreamcast-shaped bag next? For Sega's smaller consoles, such as the Master System, Game Gear and 32X, we could have pencil cases. Oh, the possibilities!
