    Finally got my hands on an American Saturn model 1 but the case is all mashed up. The console itself works fine. I've seen a "SEGA SATURN SS Console Japan Japanese JAP GAME NTSC-J #a2[USA]0504B" On eBay cheap and is marked as junk and was wondering if I could swap housings.

    I'd say yes if it's roughly the same model (same shaped buttons).

    Yeah - if one has oval buttons and one round buttons -- then no.

    Also, there were models with 2 PCBs (1 motherboard and 1 controller board) or with 1 PCB, so maybe not if this is the case.
