    Just ask him about his Ferraris every time he does this.

    I could find it possible if the Sony revision was US only and so the BIOS was updated to handle that chipset. Unlike on later hardware (both PC and console), on the Sega CD the main CPU was directly...

    Good point about Final Fight Revenge, I forgot about that. But I think RE2 would've been a bigger title than just another arcade port, and making it require the RAM cart would have been still an...

    Also if anyone would be kind enough to give me an archive of all the original 24bit backgrounds, I could batch convert them and we could see how they'd look. The above example was just one random...

    That's assuming that everyone who bought those 2d fighters is interested in Resident Evil 2. I like 2d fighters but I sure as hell don't like RE2, so I can only assume that there would be people who...

    Using the RAM cart limits your user base to people who bought that accessory, or it means you have to release the game with the RAM cart built-in, like Capcom did with all their 2d titles.... and...

    If the question was just getting it out on the stores by the deadline, then yeah, it would be an absolutely acceptable compromise. Reducing the colours by half would not have looked THAT bad,...

    Isn't it possible to add something simple like RLE compression to reduce the backgrounds to fit into the 1 meg slow ram?
    Or use the SH1 memory as extra buffer.

    Or, worst case scenario, reduce...

    And every port on online stores have people in the reviews asking where the hell is the port of Radiant Silvergun.

    It was more likely for things like email or maybe downloadable demos á la sega channel. DLCs would have been more challenging, and wasn't really a thing at the time except for PC expansion discs.

    Can't wait for the rest of that interview.



    I always considered the Megadrive as Earth, and the Sega CD as the Moon. I'm not sure why. Maybe due to the planet backdrop it shows on bootup.

    True, but there's some implication to that it happened later rather than as soon as 1995, such as mentioning that the losses on hardware would "become a huge problem later", and that "third parties...

    I disagree.
    For the VA0 units, they pushed a million of them in 4-5 months before the VA1s were ready, then continued producing VA0s until at least 1995 May (serial B50403488 that I owned has the...

    Yeah, I agree, that looks like an STV upgrade. They even mention the base motherboard having 4 connectors through which the Enhanced Function Board connects, which is exactly how the STV is set up,...

    Why are you responding to that guy? Just put him on ignore. He lives in his own fantasy world.


    Turok was very popular for the time, since it looked very advanced. Typical PC fps games at the...

    The H1 board seems to have the best track record, 100% of its games had great soundtracks (it had one game).

    It could also be that composite dithering makes the graphics look more detailed than they really are.
    Or, they just had one developer or someone say that they are going to make it look bigger, and...

    CPU production prices go lower as yields increase on one particular node. However Ryzen chips are all relatively small and consequentially have extremely good yields. I don't know the particulars of...

    No, because we don't know if that price is the console alone or with packaging, and also because there are other things like logistics to consider, the units have to be moved to the shops - which is...

    They made at least 80k VA15 consoles in 1997 already, based on the serials. By 1998 it was the only model in production, but they only made something like 300k units that year (including the skeleton...

    A dramatic revision is not necessarily dramatically cheaper. They probably saved some money since they cut the LEDS from four to two, used less cable ties, but not dramatically cheaper. These are few...

    Sanyo drives were used from VA6 and onwards, just pretty rarely. VA0 also had a second-sourced drive by Hitachi, it's so rare that I've seen it described as a prototype once.

    The first cost saving...

    The VA1 streamlined production, the bill of materials was most likely the same as the VA0. The Access LED and Reset daughter boards for the VA0 were part of the main PCB during manufacturing, they...
