Emulation VS Original Hardware

I have to disagree with your Sega Saturn diagnosis because from my point of view you should buy a console to play console exclusive games not ports of Playstation games no wonder you were disappointed.
During that era the PS1 was the lead platform for many games albeit with good reason the Sega Saturn was much harder to program for.
However the Sega Saturn is still home to games that were only available on the Sega Saturn and also there are many games which have superior ports such as the Capcom and SNK 2D fighters if you like that sort of thing of course =P.

With regards to emulation vs original hardware I have to say with older consoles like Nes / Snes you always had problems such as 50/60hz games and region protection. However I still keep my old hardware just incase I want to play on it again as in my opinion I don't feel like they quite capture the feeling the original hardware provides.

I still have a tube tv in my room it wasn't even that long ago maybe just a few years HD only really kicked off with the event of the Xbox 360.
If our old TV didn't break down we'd still have that 28 inch tube tv in our living room instead of the 50 inch 1080p Plasma we have now.
Although this is kind of reflected in the UK economy too as people aren't spending to buy newer models anymore.

Just to be clear, this isn't

Just to be clear, this isn't Armchair Arcade's podcast. Bill is just linking to it. Here's a link to their forum if you'd like to chat with their community.

I just updated the blog post

I just updated the blog post to better reflect that, Matt. Of course, you're all free to discuss it here, but we'll probably just have to make up the answers... ;-)

Hehe, thanks. I get enough people disagreeing with me for stuff I actually am responsible for. :)
