    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...

    Comix Zone, Vectorman, perhaps Garfield which wasn't a great title but still very popular, not sure how well it sold.
    And there were some pretty big multiplatform titles at the time, like Earthworm...

    I'd argue otherwise, the OG Xbox while the most expensive, was also by far the strongest machine on the market. And it was also well known and publicized that Microsoft is losing $100 on every Xbox...

    I have no doubt whatsoever that there could be homebrew devs who tested this and came to a conclusion in either direction.

    What I am questioning is your word on that.

    I mean consider this. When...

    Someone said something on discord. That's very scientific. Almost the equivalent of Karen on Facebook talking about COVID.

    I'd like to see some explanation as to how exactly you measure those memory speeds, because it's the exact opposite of what my findings are.

    There's no auto-switching whatsoever on the carts, the 4mb carts are just backwards compatible - except for three games, which get glitches on a 4mb card.
    Metal Slug isn't one of those games, it...

    Nah. Especially in 2001, it was a very impressive game, and tons of fun to play too.
    The sequels were a mixed bag, both for single player and multiplayer.

    But Halo 4, the first game made by the...

    Sega vs Sony in 1994 did not come up to the size of the company. It came down to Sony, being a newcomer and not having internal developers, went to every third party and asked them what they wanted -...

    Wait, I did not pay attention to modern gaming, Halo of all things is not getting a physical release? Really?

    That $99 was the "we are writing off our old inventory" pricing.

    The translation work itself is the translators intellectual property, so if they post those as their own or try to sell them, then copyright infringement works.

    These kind of people exist in every homebrew community, you just didn't see much of them because the Saturn did not have one yet.

    BC Racers on the 32x already did this, and ran at a much higher frame rate.

    The impressive part on this demo is that it runs on stock hardware.

    BC Racers and the Sonic CD Special Stages worked like that, they were mode 7 "racers". Problem was that they had a low framerate due to needing to transfer too many scaled tiles into the VDP.
