You seem to be missing a game that was released after Chaos Field: Trizeal. Another shmup to add to the DC's extensive library that makes it in my opinion the best console for shmups and fighting games, period.


Yea... forgot about that one.

That one dosen't look like it's getting a port anytime soon, so I'll have to pick it up.

I remember hearing that the PlayStation2 could not run Jet Grind/Set Radio, something about memory and colors and active somethings. While the Dreamcast could. Ah, that was a good bragging point back in the day. So was this actually true?

I heard the same think about Ecco the Dolphin.

That rumor was proved false about 1 year later, when Ecco was released to the PS2. I suspect the same is true for Jet Grind/Set Radio. They could do it, but for whatever reason, decided not to.



And even if PS2 couldn't handle it, I'm sure the Cube or Box could. And yet, Sega still hasn't ported it. Why not?

Look around. You should be able to get a Cube for ~$50. Like I did:

- Bought Cube for $89 on sale
- Sold the free game on Ebay for $35.
- Net price = $54

Then you can play excellent Cube-only games like Skies, Eternal Darkness, Fzero, Metroid Prime, and the new Zelda Realistic.

Not about money, i just don't want a third console cluttering up my living room. And out of the 3 consoles this year, cube by far has the least amount of good games IMO, so it was the one i didnt buy.

I never heard of that about Ecco the Dolphin, and quite frankly, I can't see anything in it that would make somebody say it couldn't be run on the PS2. It used a standard graphics style and had nothing "special" going on. It did look beautiful though.

Yes that was my point. The "Ecco can't be made on PS2" rumor is as dumb as the "Jet Grind can't be made on PS2" rumor. It just doens't make sense.

And before you say Jet Grind has special graphics, so do lots of PS2 games. Like Rez. Or Gitaroo Man.

Rez was a DC game first.

No shit Sherlock.

The point is that if PS2 can handle Rez and other graphics-intensive games, it can handle Jet Grind.

Calm down Electrictoy. Woah nelly.
AM2 had said they would not have been able to do Shenmue on the PS2 in the same way they have done Shenmue for Dreamcast. Something to do with the textures-- of course, that could have just been propaganda AM2 was putting out.

Or an excuse. "We don't think Shenmue would be profitable, but we can't say that. Too negative. Might hurt sales. Let's lie instead."

If Syphon Filter can be ported *backwards* from the Xbox to the PS2...
...and Resident Evil 4 ported *backwards* from the Cube to the PS2...
...with both still looking decent...
...then surely any DC game could be done forwards from DC to PS2. Maybe it would only look 99% as good, but it could still be done.

Skies of Arcadia is a REALLY fun game...

But it has a really pathetic and unexpected ending... I hate it :-(
I am a joke topic.

Syphon Filter...?

You do know it's made and published by Sony, right? So it was never meant to be for the Xbox in the first place...

The problem wasn't that it can't be done, but it was taking too long. Sega said the reason they stopped the PS2 version was the longer than they expected. Clearly the GC version take less time. As for new dreamcast games, take a look at this:

uh, what kind of argument is that?

"if my PS2 can handle Tempest, It can handle Halo 2"

Splinter Cell was ported backwards, yes, but with major changes made to the engine... I know the lighting in particular is worse, and from what I heard alot of the levels are more linear, since the ps2 couldn't take the large levels.

You may be right, I have no idea, but what does it matter if the lighting is not as good? If you've never seen the Xbox version, you won't know. You still get to enjoy Splinter Cell on PS2.




The problem wasn't that it can't be done, but it was taking too long. Sega said the reason they stopped the PS2 version was the longer than they expected.

That makes a lot more sense than "can not be done." I can believe that a PS2 port might be labor-intensive & expensive, especially if the marketing folks say it won't sell.

I was a bit surprised to see Space Channel, Parts 1 and 2 ported over, and sold at only $20. Sega must have lost a mint on that deal.

Sega didn't bring that to the US... Agetec had publishing rights for that one.

It actually debuted at 14.99, which was an incredible deal. Part 2 came out in Japan for DC, I was thinking of importing it... :P
And 62, are you referring to Shenmue for PS2...?

I got this game for $20 new back last March and still haven't played it... ah well... someday. If I like RPGs a lot, will I prolly dig this?

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.
