Default Saturn questions

I know this is a little off topic, but does anyone know if an imported saturn from japan will play on an NTSC tv and plug into an american outlet? Also could it be modded to play import and us backups? thanks guys

It'll play it just fine and no you don't need a mod to play import backups

A typical Stealth answer is almost always totally wrong. I think he's retarded or something. Just ignore everything that idiot says.

The Saturn has both regional and backup protection. Bypassing one doesn't bypass the other.
-To play backup's you'll need either a MOD chip or use a swap trick.
-To play games from other regions you'll either need to patch the game, install a region switch MOD in the saturn, or get a plug in cartridge that bypasses the regional protection.

Go here and read the FAQ's in the Miscellaneous section: ***********

Chipping a Saturn is a piece of pi$$, just plug the chip in and solder 4 wires. I done mine in less than 5 minutes. Don't bother using any swap techniques as it will kill you laser.

The region switching mod is pretty easy to do as well but if you don't fancy doing it then try and get hold of an action replay 4-in-1 if you can. This will let you play imports as well as act as a memory card for saved games and it works with games that need the 1MB expansion pack.

check this site out for more info on chipping and the 50/60hz mod:
