My only gripe with this is that it's already been said (can't find the damn link) that the WC and Ultima titles will be console ports (SNES version for U7, at least).

I'll stick to my DosBox =)

The Super Nintendo ports are great. They were done a good while after the PC versions and utilized the most advanced console graphics technology at the time. Because of cartridge memory limitations, a few things like the Jalthi model were changed, but on the other hand, we got other new things added. The Secret Missions on Super Nintendo has an entirely new intro cutscene that ads some neato stuff.

The automatic translation from HTML to forum code doesn't always handle the spacings and tables the same way.

I wonder if this has anything to do with what was said in the latest Official Playstation Magazine by EA about reviving some old Origin series.

Do you have a copy of the article you referenced? That would be great for the news here.

More may be on the way.
