well saturn sold very well in japan. Hell it was neck to neck with PSone until FFIIV came out. And it had a considerable lead over the N64. As for the western market.. well SEGA really screwed that up. Bad dev tools+ hard to develop for quads(no matter how much better they looked than polygons), couldn't save the system.

I see some much VC/PSN/XBLA potential in saturn titles.. SEGA really ought to get those out. The best selling title on XBLA in japan is VO:OT.. that isnt a coincidence..

Extremely unlikely. The Saturn is very difficult to emulate, no emulators run it to a high standard as of yet. VC is out simply because of space limitations. VO:OT was a DC game by the way.

Try SSF it is pretty much perfect up there with the best N64 and PS1 emus. I rarely us my actual Saturn anymore (i don't want to wear it out from non-light gun games)thanks to SSF. Way ahead of the PS2 and DC emus.

Sega's developed an internal SS emulator that runs on PC and PSP even.  Atlus Japan licensed it for Princess Crown and Devil Summoner on PSP, which are both basically Saturn ISOs on UMDs.

Gametap also offers a few early Saturn games on their service (VF1, Panzer Dragoon 1-2, Bug! & Clockwork Knight iirc).



I can't believe some people are actually bringing up games like Xenogears and FF8 in a thread about good games. What a dark time.

Nice, I never knew that. I will also have to check out the Panzer Dragoons on Gametap, man I love those games!

SSF is the best emu I've used. Plays my games and ROMS well.

If Sega put the original Sega Rally on XBLA for 1600 MSP, I would hit it up in a flash.

I'd also pay that for pixel perfect ports of Daytona(not CE), Dragon Force, Burning Rangers and Sonic Jam.

Add Sega Touring Car if they get rid of the contextual steering.

Well I'm not quite sure about the actual game, but I know they re-released it for the PS2 in Japan (as part of the Sega Ages collection) a few years ago.

If you click on the little box in the upper right corner (looks like an animated gif), then you can check out the promo video.

I've been thinking about picking it up for awhile eventhough I already have Dragon Force (both the US and JP versions) for the Saturn.

@op: I love my Saturn (Saturn > PS1 for me) and have ever since I got my first one in 1995 (for Christmas), I think. It's too bad my US modded Saturn doesn't work anymore (drive doesn't spin up at all), but I still have 2 JP Saturns.(one with the extra MPEG adapter card, which makes Lunar: SSS MPEG version look great! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDOE8GUlIAA&fmt=18 )

It's great being in Japan, because I can pick up so many Saturn games. I have so many Saturn games that I've picked up for pretty cheap, I only have a partial listing in my profile. The only exceptions being rare games, which are of course expensive. I still want to pick up Radiant Silvergun, but it usually costs in the $150-$170 range, whenever I see it.

Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.

He's right that SSF is pretty good, but it isn't as good as Project64 and it is far behind ePSXe, not even close. It's still not at a commercially acceptable level in my opinion.

 

Jarrod, have you got any citation for that Sega developed emu? I'm aware Saturn games like Panzer/SegaRally/VF/VC etc. appeared as ports on various systems but they all had original PC ports, or didn't start on the Saturn.

Gametap says they're the Saturn versions.  Two of the games (Panzer Zwei and Clockwork Knight) also never had PC ports.

Also, here's an interview where a Sony rep mentions the PSP emulator briefly.  It's based on GiriGiri, which Sega bought for their own Japanese PC classic games service in the mid 1990s.  Dunno if Gapetap uses GiriGiri too though?
