    Could Dreamcast et al handle this/that fighter? *spawn

    The Bernie Stolar created Sega Dreamcast never delivered on those claims and questions you are making, it never delivered a racer, not even by a third party that could surpass Scud Race and Daytona USA 2 and we all know what happened to Sega Rally 2 which never got a Sega Rally 2 Apology for...

    Could Dreamcast et al handle this/that fighter? *spawn

    Sega Model 3 is a fully designed for the internal targets that Sega Amusement had as goals, for it's time it also has a huge advantage of using ROM for game storage which is a major factor which plastic disc technology just has not been able to break in determining the graphical performance...

    Questions about Sega Saturn

    This is a very misleading way of thinking... Saying that the Saturn games fell short alone is misleading. The main problem is that Sega Saturn had a successfull launch and first year and second year in sales in Japan, outselling Sony PS1, it was even outselling N64 in that region. That is why...

    Questions about Sega Saturn

    What is your intention on this question? That the old print magazine information is not credible because it's not online? Language barrier? Or lack of interest to look up the documented info in other forums? And in your arguments you don't take into account the impact it had in derailing that...

    Questions about Sega Saturn

    It's PRINTED...end of year quarterly report or ytd sales...other Japanese publications also printed and published sales figures of note in 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998 and 1999. Iirc 1996 had the last 16bit sales reports. If you say so...however this post makes your knowledge of that era really...

    Questions about Sega Saturn

    Are you insinuating that I am blaming Sony here? How the hell? Oh wait you're talking about alcohol... When you say "Sega did/didn't" you should be a little more specific as to "which" Sega...apparently during the run of around 1992-1994 and 1995... Sega of America was making suggestions and...

    Questions about Sega Saturn

    Even though it was in 2016 postings...I'm getting a guy selling me a "Sony PlayStation as best platform" in a Sega Saturn discussion thread...when I actually purchased the system at launch in 1995. Talk about marketing hype out of control in a technical discussion.

    Questions about Sega Saturn

    Your entire post is all about selling the Sony PlayStation as a preferred platform to develop games on. It's also based on early development tools and to be fair, as I have indicated, the comparison only makes sense from 1994 to 1997 and barely 1998 as those were the years of heavy first party...

    Questions about Sega Saturn

    Grall apparently you missed the memo that Sega actually cost reduced and made a major mainboard revision which reached retail Japan in March/April 1996 at ¥19,900 therefore your assertions are wrong and misinformed. This information can be found in Western gamer print magazines of the...

    Questions about Sega Saturn

    You're the one directly comparing Sony PlayStation hardware and Sega Saturn as if they HAD to have console parity features while ignorant my mentioned "PSX has GTE" You keep insisting that "Saturn renders distorted sprites" when even PlayStation with GTE does the SAME damn thing. Neither...

    Questions about Sega Saturn

    This makes me wonder if you played those games back then on each system and immediately faulted framerates and pop up clipping. The Ridge Racer PSX versus Daytona USA Saturn 1995 is mostly a print magazine comparison...the scores and reviews are interesting of the time as they didn't seem too...

    Questions about Sega Saturn

    I love that you posted that link...I remember finding a Sega fan site which claimed many things one friend dismissed as insane (he never owned a Saturn...hated Sega but liked Panzer Dragoon and I only bought Panzer Dragoon Saga to get under his skin...same day he offered me more money for...

    Questions about Sega Saturn

    I mentioned consoles being different...maybe I worded something implying favoritism somehow... Meanwhile I thought I was questioning the use of print media fodder originating in 1995. Currently and last gen western media has faced direct accusations by consumers of the "glowing reviews"...

    Atari Jaguar architecture discussion

    Don't take this the wrong way but back when 3D0, Jaguar, Saturn and PlayStation came out (with PlayStation being the dark horse) 3d hardware technology that was designed and developed just could not really deliver or wasn't really designed for texture mapped 3d unless advanced software...
