​​The Sega Pluto is an unreleased variant of the Sega Saturn. The Pluto was a revised version of the Saturn with a built-in Netlink modem (which would have made it the first console to have internet support straight out of the box), along with a new chassis and bodywork. The system weighs in at a rather hefty 6 lbs and has two controller ports, a top-loading disc drive with a flip-top lid, and a memory cartridge slot. It is unknown exactly how far the project was carried through before it was cancelled - only two prototypes were ever produced (Pluto 01 and Pluto 02, respectively), both presumably from around the 1997-1999 period. Both prototypes have been found, with Pluto 02’s last known location believed to be in Japan.
