Yea, and thats why the PlaySation was Emued on a PC with better grfx and
performance:)- The N64 is partialy emued, law suits more than tech are
stopiing that though.
Consoles are great little snapshots of ideas, good for a few months then
simply endured until the next one comes out. An appliance of limited use .
A good pc expands, evolves, and explores. I guese if your not able to add
in new grfx cards or upgrabed mobos and cpus then your pretty much fucked
wether its a computer or a console, like mac folks. You get what your
given and you pay for the next one when your told.
