Since it seems that every version of ST apart from playing off an actual arcade board has its problems and differences with the original that upset purists, whether we’re talking HDR, Dreamcast, GGPO/FBA, MAME, whatever - I got thinking…I wonder if it would be possible to release a perfect, hardware based remake of the game?
I was thinking that one of those plug-and-play TV game type things would be AWESOME for ST’s continued future, and with today’s technology it could be a tiny little box, wouldn’t need a big thing with a cooling fan, bulky power supply, etc.
I’m thinking basically ST on a chip, no software emulation, just CPS2 with a much more streamlined design and single usage. Give it USB controller support, and the game could be enjoyed for many, many years to come. Could this even be done? I’ve got a Sega Genesis Street Fighter II Special Champion Edition TV plug and play thingy, don’t see why someone couldn’t get the rights to do the same with arcade ST. Just plug into an old CRT and go…thoughts?
