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.
P.S. And please note that I am not attacking you personally. I think you're a great guy. I just disagree with your idea. ----- FAVORITES: (pre-85) Space Invaders/Asteroids/Missile Command/Berzerk/Pitfall/Indy 500/Defender/Pac-Man Junior ---------- (85-95) Arkanoid, Marble Madness, Pirates!, Elite, Red Storm Rising, Final Fantasy 6, Chrono Trigger ---------- (95-05) Final Fantasy 9, 10, Banjo-Kazooie
