    You could just use the Multi-AV still if you wanted separate audio, it could just as easily be hooked up to an amplifier as your TV.
    The RCA ports where there simply to make it more high quality,...

    It was a cost cutting measure. There was an interview with either Kutaragi or the Sony CEO where it was specifically brought up.

    Yeah, Galactic Attack / Layer Section abuses linescrolls heavily, and when rotated this is not available, so a lot of the effects go away.
    It does have an option to not rotate the controls however,...

    You mean Layer Section 1, not 2.

    From the top of my head, games that can switch modes are Shienryu, the psikyo shooters (Gunbird, Strikers, etc), at least one of the Capcom Generations titles (the...

    I can imagine a lot of CPU being burnt up when he does 4 player split screen, or has 10+ polygonal enemies on screen at the same time, not to mention all that lightning, and having large open maps.

    The Saturn hardware makes a lot more sense if you consider it before they started gluing stuff to it. Consider: 1 main cpu, 2x VDPs (sprite and backgrounds), 1x sound cpu+synth, the SCU to keep...

    The market is too large to quit like that, and MS has deep enough pockets to keep going even if they take huge losses. They could sell the XSX at $400 if they wanted or even lower. Yeah, it would...

    Just pretend to ignore the internal memory entirely, consider it nonexistant. Then you can say you haven't cashed out for any memory at all, and bam, now the console saves the same way as your PSX -...

    I did show a pic with 240+ files on it, which is probably for 100+ games (there were like 70 fighting vipers replays there). I could probably get more there, but I really can't be bothered because...

    You have 80 files in one of your carts with still over a thousand blocks free, I have 88 in my actual console, and it's only 2/3 full, and I just made a cart with an editor that can fit 250 files. So...

    So 2 MGS saves are still 13.3% of the cart, but that's okay, while 4 Dragon Force saves taking 15% is very bad.
    And you have 80+ saves in your screenshots which would need minimum of 6 PSX memory...

    Probably for the same reason why a Sim City 2000 save fits into 32k on the Saturn, but sometimes doesn't even fit in 128k on the Playstation? Maybe Dragon Force tracks more stats than you know of, or...

    You are specifically comparing games with large saves vs games with small saves. You can fill up full memory cards with saves from one game only on the Playstation too, or even have games where you...

    I didn't even have a cart until ebay, I only used the internal memory and removed a game I was not playing at the moment if I needed the space. It wasn't a big deal, and I don't think I changed the...

    The internal memory is meant to be a temporary solution so you can still play games without needing to cash out for a memory cart. Not a long term solution for your saves, and not something meant to...

    Don't ever try to randomly "flip" a battery orientation, or you'll fry something.

    That said, you should indeed check if you didn't install the battery incorrectly. The cr2032 on the Saturn should...

    I bought something like 3 from ebay from Japan for maybe around $30 plus shipping. I don't even remember.
    There are also 16k block third party save carts that incidentally cost less than the 8k...

    I get what he is saying, but the point I'm making is that he is comparing an console upgraded with an accessory, to a stock unit. Of course the PSX with a mem cart is better than a stock Saturn,...

    You keep arguing the Saturn, WITHOUT A CARD, is worse at saves than a PSX WITH A CARD. You are not even making a direct comparison.

    Nights is one of the very few games that use so much space. The...

    Dear lord are you this dense or are you just trolling?

    - Saturn can save
    - PSX cannot

    If you buy a save cart
    - Saturn cart has 8000+...
