    Eh, I have it already on PS1, so that's nothing really big to me.

    Yeah I have the image on my Xbox, it saves me from dragging out my PS1 to play it, then again my Xbox saves me from dragging a lot of systems out thatnks to the wonders of emulation. Personally though I would like a port of it on the DS.

    I have no 360 but I do hope they'll use the superior Saturn version.

    This looks like conformation that they will use the PS1 version.

    Since it ain't the Saturn one, nothing to get excited about. I'd rather have a portable version since I've already got the PS1 version.

    I've always thought that the general consensus was that despite the addition of a couple of extra areas, weapons, and Maria mode, the Saturn version was pretty reviled. It didn't deal well with transparency, making it much uglier than the Playstation version, and it wasn't even done by Igarashi's team. Why would it not being the Saturn version be a deal breaker for anybody? I'm not angry, I'm just curious what about it supposedly makes it so superior that it would cause someone who might otherwise be excited to pass? Because that's the first I've ever heard that assertation made, and two different people in the thread made it.

    Probably because it's "not sony" or something?

    I played both versions and I personally thought that the Saturn version looked better. And that was in the PS1 days before Sony made an enemy of me.

    The port overall was great, the transparency thing was really the only downfall. Being able to play as Richter, and Maria form the outset was pretty cool.
