View Full Version : Saturn Emulation

Fear and Loathing
October 5th, 2006, 20:51
With the great news that it appears a more functional PS1 emulator might be on the way, I was wondering whether anyone has been/is working on an emulator for the Sega Saturn?

There were many great (and often overlooked) great games for the system which would be brilliant if they could be played on the move on the PSP such Nights Into Dreams, Sega Rally, Shining Force 3, Panzaar Dragoon Saga, etc.

Anyone know if this is in the pipeline?

There is not a Saturn emulator in development.

There is not a Saturn emulator in development.

and there will probably never be. The saturn machine very complexed to emulate. I doubt the psp has the horse power.

It doesn't. The Saturn is way more complex than the PS1.

CPU: Two 32-bit SH-2 (28.6MHz) RISC processors
RAM: 2MB, Video RAM: 1.5MB
Colors: 16.7 million
Polygons: 200,000 texture-mapped, 500,000 flat-shaded per second
Game Media: CD-ROM
Resolution: 704x480
Sound: 32-channel PCM, 8-channel FM stereo

RISC = Intel processor or the likes

Hence would cost a bit to emulate it on the PSP..

Wouldnt say totaly impossible. Seen too many impossible things happen to say that.

But if anyones working on one they're not talking.

but don't they say that even PC's have trouble emulating this console...if so then i doubt that the psp will ever be able to emulate it.
