Mad scientist cracks a Sega Saturn's impossible DRM
James Laird-Wah wanted to figure out a way to make Sega Saturns work forever; after years of reverse engineering, he finally made it happen. In 1994, Sega made history by launching the much-lauded 32-bit disc-based Saturn game console. Many major games were released for the system, but it lost out to the Nintendo 64 and was discontinued just four years after it first became available. That means that the Saturn is difficult for retro fans to find today. And to make matters worse, the system’s CD-ROM drive has been known to fail over time.
