It could make your Genesis look like it had a black nuclear 'splosion coming out of the cart port.
Check out Chilly Willy's Wolf 3D, Spear 3D and Yeti 3D projects.
By the way, here is the dinosaur demo running on an actual PS1.
And here is a best case scenario for how the T-Rex would look on a high end PC from the time.

Was there something wrong with demo one that I posted? It was running on actual hardware too you know. I'm still waiting on that list of successful gaming addons that costed over 150.
Who knew that the gaming industry was governed by Da Shocker's view of the world but every other industry can upgrade everything constantly without any trouble. You should contact Apple, Microsoft and Sony and tell them they have to only release one product at a time.
http://www.gamespot.com/news/microso...report-6282208 And the Wii was sold as a standalone system not an upgrade. IDC about every other industry just the gaming industry.
I just find it a but fuzzy that you don't consider an upgrade if the manufacturer abandons its userbase. That seems off to me. So I will ask again, if Sega had just abandoned the stand alone Genesis and launched the Neptune instead of the 32X it wouldn't be an upgrade right? Also, whoever mentioned the PCE CD-ROM was right, that was a very expensive but successful add-on that predated the Sega CD and 32X. Also, the Sega CD is considered a success as an add-on, it's only morons who think every format has to sell 10+million units that think it is a failure.
Also, your dinosaur demo didn't have Brak narrating for the T-Rex, mine is objectively better.
You changing your tune. If you was a CRT TV owner you had to buy a new set to experience HDTV, just like you had to buy a new set if you wanted Stereo TV or Teletext if you TV didn't support it- They were no upgrades , very much the same goes for Mobiles you don't buy an add-on for your mobile that boasts it power and enables its to do new effects you have to buy a new phone . 32X was an add-on too far and one that wasn't needed given the time it shipped.So if Sega had just released a DUO and then TRIO console, giving previous owners no options whatsoever, it isn't an upgrade?
Oh it could and most machines before launch will always boats hundreds of developers with kits , but there is vast difference to developers just signed up on paper, to developers actually paying money for development/license rights on the 'said' console make games.Not before launch it couldn't
lets be real here , if was 3D and there is no way the 32X could have handle it, I doubt the Saturn would have been able to pull of a decent portAs for Metal Gear, its essentially a 2D game with 3D cutscenes
N AM#2 confirmed to the Japanese press that they were pushing 90,000 polygons in Viruta Fighter on the Saturn and that the final game would be pushing over 100,000. And I'm pretty sure SONY's Total NBA is pushing more polygons than's Iron and Blood.1995 PS1 and Saturn games were pushing 60 to 80 thousand texture mapped gouraud shaded polygons
That is just being silly , its like saying the DC didn't offer a true Arcade experience due to loading times . When it came to screen res, sound not just the CD music but sound effect (where the Saturn truly pisses on the 32X version) and polygons the Saturn was so much closer to the Arcade than the 32X version .I think that the 32X version of VF was better than the Saturns, better load times true arcade experiance
I know which version I rather play anyday of the week
Panzer Dragoon Zwei is
one of the best 3D shooting games available
Presented for your pleasure
The 32X version doesn't have any of the polygon flicker and floor drop out that the Saturn game has. I would rather play it than the sloppy Saturn port. The Saturn should have been able to handle a near perfect Arcade port but they rushed it and didn't even bother to fix it for the Western release.
Yeah, I wouldn't use the Saturn port of Virtua Fighter to defend the system. I'd say the 32X version is more impressive given the hardware it's running on than the Saturn port. The Saturn port is just a messy disappointment. Now Virtua Fighter Remix, that's a game to be proud of as a Saturn owner.

I own a SCD and of all the 180 games or so that were released only 20 or so are worth anything. Given the fact that the PCECD did well of course Sega would try and copy it limited success but at least it has a good reason to exist which is more than I can say about the 32X. Being successful in 1 of 3 regions isn't anything to brag about though unless your the N64 or Xbox. The FDS sold 4.4 million units in Japan but it wasn't released here. It was somewhat successful in Japan but has no relevance outside of Japan. The only addons that Nintendo released here was the Super Gameboy, GBP, and expansion ram cart. Everything else was left in Japan, Nintendo still makes hardware and Sega doesn't. So who was making the better business choices?

Nintendo incrementally upgraded the Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance, and DS and they are still a major player in that electronics sub sector. Here is where your logic is absolutely flawed. Releasing an incremental upgrade is no different if it is created as an attachment or a new device. The function is the same, to bolster sales while maximizing profitability on older hardware. You have been play acting so much I honestly don't know if your playing dumb or you really can't see the forest from the trees in this discussion.
I just wanted to confirm that you actually do mean to say that Add-on upgrades that succeeded in Japan are irrelevant to the discussion of incremental upgrades in the Video game industry. Does that include all hardware that only succeeded in one market?
