is it possible (virtual console question)

Is it possible that sega Saturn games could become available on the virtual console?

Honestly if they brought the Saturn along with panzer dragoon saga to the virtual console i would be a very happy adult.

I don't see why not. I imagine part of the reason they didn't last gen was due to the limited space on the internal storage for the Wii. Saturn was the same generation as the N64 and those took up a lot of space fast.

I'd mainly be hoping for Dragon Force if they did though.

There;s also the fact that the Saturn was a very complex machine (to code for and especially to emulate) with 6/7 separate processors - definitely not something that could be emulated at anything approaching playable speed on a 700-some megaherts G3 equivalent processor. The Wii-U MIGHT be able to emulate it, but I have my doubts.

I think it might cost them a pretty penny . I feel like sega wouldn't let the rights to use those games go for cheap. I honestly don't know how it works though. We can hope right?lol

Saturn is almost impossible to emulate. There's a reason we haven't seen this sort of thing yet.

Saturn was kinda like the PS3, they wanted to try something different and went WAY over developers heads. I would LOVE to see some virtual cop games pop up on the VC, think of the possibilities with the Gamepad! But SEGA has other things on their platter right now.

Didn't SFF crush the impossible barrier a few years ago?
