The coolest console bundles of all time, 20-11

Join Prima Games as they take a look back at the 20 best video game bundles of all time, from the old-school Atari days to modern times.

20. Sega Saturn 3-Pack (Sega Saturn)

When it initially launched, the Sega Saturn didn't have any games inside the box – but Sega quickly wised up by gifting its avid audience with a three-pack. This trio of titles included the racing game Daytona USA, the light-gun shooter Virtua Cop 2 and the awesome fighting game Virtua Fighter 2.
