Eight extremely embarrassing E3 moments

On gaming's biggest stage, these eight figures fell on their faces. Check out these eight extremely embarrassing E3 moments!

6- Sony Steals Sega's Saturn Thunder (1995)


At E3 1995, Sega set up the bomb for E3 attendees when the company revealed that its in-development Sega Saturn console, scheduled to be released in September of 1995 would be released... immediately! Bumping the Saturn's release up six months to compete with the impending launch of the PlayStation contributed to it being a flop. Third parties were unaware of the surprise launch, leaving a meager launch game lineup, and the retail price of $US399 was unexpectedly high. Sony actually took most of the air out of Sega's tires at the same E3: Sony's keynote speaker went up on stage, said "Two hundred and Ninety-Nine Dollars" and walked off the stage. And with that, Sony became a legitimate console company.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
