Introduction

  Welcome to Issue #8 of the console scene's LONGEST RUNNING MAG!

         This issue is the second issue released with no utilities.

  As NONE of you know ( or care? ) this issue was GOING to be released on
May 27th! Well, it was my birthday. (Hold your applause please) But then 
there was this big party and I really didn't feel like kicking all these
nice girls out, so it's being released a few days later. I'm sure you care.

  OK. Lots of new stuff coming out. The console market seems to be turning
towards CD/ROM systems. Right now, almost *ALL* video game systems have
CD/ROMs, or a CD/ROM is in the making. This includes all systems except for
the SNES. Nintendo does NOT have any plans, that I know of at least, to
introduce a CD/ROM for the 16bit SNES platform. Instead, their PROJECT
REALITY will, hopefully, take over the SNES. 

  A few minor changes: Since there is now a growing field of programmers 
for video games in Europe, there are two new "dividers" in the game list
section, titled "EUROPEAN <machine name>."

  This is probably the second shortest CNS issue, besides #1. No utilities,
and only small articles.
***************************************************************************

For Your Personal Enjoyment...

- Console News first appeared "in the scene" on June 8th 1993.
- Console News is the longest running console scene 'zine. [8th issue]
- Console News was/is the console scene's FIRST disk-mag with all the 
   information on new games for the SNES, Genesis, and others.
- Console News has been placed in the Public Domain by Caffeine.
- One of these days Console News MIGHT be coded into a SNES disk-zine.
- New menu was included in CNS in issue 8 ( logo by Bitstar^Zero )

Sony's PS-X System

   Scheduled for release sometime in November in Japan, and then September
'95 in the UK and USA, Sony's PS-X system is looking hot. Sony has been
quite secretive about their PS-X system, not giving much information on the
system specs or the games. I'll try to get the full specs on this amazing
system by next issue.
   The reason for the 1year delay between the Japanese and Euro/American
release is because Sony wants to give developers and potential developers
time to produce games. They want developers to release decent, quality
games, not rushed work.
   Besides Sensible Software, Probe, DID, BITS, and Argonaut Software, the
PS-X has numerous other parties that will sign on. These include, but are
not limited to, Capcom, Konami, Namco, Ocean, Acclaim, and Electronic Arts.
Sony is so confident as to say that in the next Chicago CES show (June)
there will be at least 20 PS-X games, costing between $30 and $50 USD.
   The pictures from some games are simply amazing. This machine reminds me
of the 3DO, but better.

New SuperWild Card Info

=============[ Info gathered from THE WHITE KNIGHT of ANTHROX ]============

- CD/ROM Support (connect a CD/ROM to it: SCSI or IDE, unsure )

- BuiltIn Game(s) [see Console News #5]

- Trainer Code Finder (BuiltIn): Functions like PAN's Snes-Disassembler.
   Hunts for certain codes in the game that might be trained.

- Memory-Mode/Real Time Save Improved: Very schechy details, but I'm
   thinking it will work on more games, and they probably improved the
   continue-game part, but made the music & colours match.

- Game Finger Function supports more code formats

- Self-Test Function: Tests memory chips, much like that little utility
   that's been out for some time.

- BuiltIn Editor: Memory editor - edit files or memory. This can be 
   used in conjuction with the trainer-finder so you can personally edit 
   the games to your liking!

- New menu: better graphics, music [again, see CNS5]

- Configurable: Colours, buttons, joystick, ect. can all be configured to
   your personal preference.

- Multiple Language Support - English, Japanese, ect.

- Dual unit available: To support the SEGA GENESIS. Why? I dunno. :)

8bit Super Nintendo?

   A company called 'Fire International, LTD' has created a device that 
will finally allow you to play those old 8bit NES games on your 16bit SNES!
I reported about a similar device in CNS#4. This device, however, is
currently available to consumers. The previous device has not been 
released, to my knowledge.

   Using a cartridge port adaptor similar to the GENESIS device that allows
you to play 8bit SMS games on the GENESIS, the TRI-STAR(tm) allows you to
play any game for the NES on your SNES. From what I can tell, the TRI-STAR
has *NOT* been licensed by Nintendo. 

  The TRI-STAR uses a menu system that looks QUITE similar to the menu on
the SUPER WILD CARD. At the top, it has a SWC-like "banner" that simply says
TRI-STAR. There are two options: SNES or NES. The options are icon-based,
much like the SWC. The TRI-STAR even has the infamous "<- -> SELECT" and "B
START" text below the menu. The two icons are easily identified; 'PLAY NES'
is simply a NES controller, while 'PLAY SNES' is a SNES controller.

  The bottom of the screen, even tho the picture I have is cut-off, says
something to the extent of this device is not licensed by NINTENDO. But in
better english heh heh! 

  Not only does this device play American-NES games, but it also allows you
to play FAMICOM (Japanese) games. The overall layout of the device allows a
SNES/SFC game and a NES/FC game to be inserted, at the same time.

Super Street Fighter II

          SUPER STREET FIGHTER II IS COMING TO THE SUPER NINTENDO.

  Although unconfirmed by Capcom, the cartridge is rumoured to be an
astounding -32- megabits. Which means, ofcourse, most of you will have to
upgrade your backup unit[s] from 16m/24m to 32m. If you need the 32m
upgrade ( for the SWC, SPFQ, or whatever ) you can contact Progressive 
Innovations, Inc. at (800)-494-5322. 

  Why 32m you say? It's simple really. The graphics in SSF2 take up MUCH
more room than that on ANY other SF game. And yes, CAMMY , DEE JAY, T. 
HAWK, and FEI LONG are all present in this version. It's an exact ( well,
close to it anyway ) arcade copy. EXCEPT for one minor detail. According to
Capcom, the SNES version will have "extra game play not found in the
arcade." This could mean alot of things. It could mean that there will be
more options. It could mean that there are secret moves. It could mean 
there are secret players. It could mean there will be multiple endings,
similar to the ones found on SF2 Turbo, although they would be pressed for
space. It could mean something I haven't even thought of.

  June 26th is the current rumoured release date for the Japanese SFC
version. Since the Mega Drive (aka GENESIS) has such a tiny market in 
JAPAN ( no comment from me, heh heh! ), the MegaDrive version could be out 
a month or more later, if it comes out at all. The American version could 
be sometime in July. Capcom has not been able to do a worldwide release as
of this writing. Games usually come out a month ( or sometimes more ) later
than their Japanese counterparts. It would be a great idea to have both
versions (Jap & US) released at the same time, but I doubt it will happen.

  The price is another thing, even though most of you wouldn't even 
consider it. With the extra megabits (32m), rumours have leaked from Capcom
that suggest the Japanese version will cost around Ñ10,900 (yen). This
translates into roughly $100 USD. With the economic conditions existing in
Japan, the price could drop lower, to around $80 USD. This would mean the
American release might cost $80-$85.

More Super GameBoy Info
( also featured in CNS7 )

   I just got more information on this Super GameBoy (SGB) device from
Nintendo of America...

   1) Users will be allowed to CUSTOMIZE their on-screen colours. This means
that you can make a water area green, blue, yellow, or any of 256 possible
colours.

   2) The default setup will be the normal 4 grey shades. (See #1)

   3) Animated borders can be placed around the game screen. I'm not sure of
the size of the game screen, but it's got to be small, since you'd be able
to draw borders around it.

   4) Borders can be customized ( there will be default borders ).

   5) DONKEY KONG will be the first GB game to take advantage of the SGB's
capabilities.

   6) Future GB games will have certain registers that will display 256
colours on the SGB or the normal 2 "colours" ( note the quotes! ) on a
normal GameBoy.

PRICE  : $59.99 ( USD )
RELEASE: June 6 1994

Saturn News

   Here is some interesting info on the SATURN system (CNS6&7).

1) SATURN will be at the Tokyo Toy Show in June.
2) If you go to the TTS, you can see the SATURN, and maybe play a game 
    on it!
3) Even the cartridges on the SATURN will only be a MINUTE fraction of
    the system's TRUE capabilities.
4) The SATURN is both CDV and PhotoCD compatible.
5) Five games will be available when the SATURN hits the market
    (November).
6) There was a meeting of 300 developer groups on February 14th. Out of
    those 300, around 170 have agreed to program on the system.
7) SEGA says that Daytona Racing and VirtuaFighters will be an EXACT copy
    of the arcade versions.
8) SEGA and Microsoft are working together to bring the already crappy
    Windows to the SATURN, making it an IBM-compatible machine. I know, 
    I know... IBM sucks... but SEGA doesn't know that!

All except for #8 are making the SATURN a GREAT machine. But, if somehow 
the SATURN does turn into a PC-clone ( with a cartridge port and CD? I
wonder! ), you can BET that it will go down the tubes.

bought the rights to the Amiga CD32. This means that PHILIPS could now take
the technology in the CD32 and incorporate it into the CD-I, destroying the
CD32.

New 3DO News: Portable 3DO"

   Toshiba, known for their communications products, has signed an 
agreement to produce portable 3DO units. Toshiba will also introduce the 
3DO in the UK.

   The first portable 3DO will not have a screen. The second "version,"
however, will come with a screen. The second version is being worked on as
we speak (type? read?). Both units will be able to be installed in the
cigarette lighters in cars. [CAF: Which is a good reason not to go
full-blown ANTI-SMOKING. Plus, more importantly, I'd go slightly crazy.]

Jaguar Peripherals: The CD/ROM

   Probably the most eagerly anticipated peripheral is the CD/ROM for the
JAGUAR. Well, just remember where you read it first....

   The JAGUAR CD/ROM is, right now, a jumble of wires and microchips. It is
compatible with the Cinepac compression system, so users can watch moveis on
it. It can have up to 50 (fifty) frames PER SECOND, with is 30 more than the
3DO. Cinepac discs can have up to three hours of live video on it, so you
can expect QUALITY games on it.

   The JAGUAR CD can also have audio and video "collision" so you will be
able to interact with the video. This, by the way, has NEVER been done
before.

   As with most CD/ROMs, the JAGUAR CD has a special MPEG cartridge, so
users can watch CD movies. The Philips CD-I and the CD│▓ will be compatible
on the JAGUAR ( movies, not games ). 

   MPEG videos are almost the same quality as VHS movies, while Cinepac
videos are a bit less in quality. With MPEG becoming the industry standard
for CD-movies, you can BET that JAGUAR CD owners will have their hands full
with the "what to watch and when" dilemma.

   Overall, the JAGUAR CD seems like the best CD/ROM system on the market,
or to-be on the market :)
