Sega of America and its president Tom Kalinske were adamantly opposed to the Saturn's architecture on the grounds that the system would be difficult to program. Kalinske sought a deal with Silicon Graphics for an alternative graphics chip but Sega of Japan rejected this. Silicon Graphics later collaborated with Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 design. Possibly to protect Sega of America's reputation, Kalinske publicly defended the Saturn's hardware design, stating: "Our people feel that they need the multiprocessing to be able to bring to the home what we're doing next year in the arcades."
