[QUOTE="Darkman2007"] Saturn also had great 1st party titles, , I mean, Sega's AM divisions were nothing to laugh at, really great 1st party titles was the one thing sony struggled with (mainly through 2nd parties)Darkman2007
Yeah but Sega devs themselves said it was hard to develop for the Saturn. Even Yu Suzuki sait that it would be better to have a fast single CPU instead of two CPUs. Most devs struggled to get a good performance out of the Saturn and almost no games showed the real potential of the console. The beta demo Shenmue footage looks better than anything else on the Saturn. And Saturn had no real Sonic game (Sonic X-treme was cancelled).The idea that most devs struggled to get "good" performance out of the system , is quite silly
Actually no. The team that ported Quake over to the Saturn said that it was very hard to get a good performance out of the Saturn. The Saturn Quake also used a different engine.
And CPU speed is not the only thing that matters. PS1 could do stuff the Saturn couldn't (like hardware lighting, true transparencies, ect.).
Also most non-exclusive 3D games tend to run slower on the Saturn than PS1.
