    Thanks guys glad you liked it. I do enjoy making these for a bit of fun and thought it would be nice to point out the great PC engine conversion.

    The talking Scorpion is back.

    I digest though that this is actually a multi bit wars due to the PCE being an 8-Bit console with a 16-Bit video card.

    Ah yes 8-bit processor but a dual 16-bit GPU but in my opinion is basically 16-bit quality. Can do a lot of colours on screen and was very fast which made it so good for shooters.

    nice look over and I never saw the PC Engine version let alone realize it existed and more surprised how well it run over a better system, great work mate always good to see one of your vids

    Good comparison matey although like I said on YouTube the Megadrive’s music is slow probably due to your setup. The Megadrive version does play the music at the same speed as the arcade version.

    Great video, Outrun is such a fantastic Arcade game and it’s good to see that not all of the conversions were bad!

    The PC engine is one of my favourite consoles. The custom hardware was socapale that the CPU didn’t really have much to do. Although it was technically an 8bit machine (due to processor) it was really a 16bit machine since custom chips such as the video processor were 16bit (hence the fluidity of the graphics). I’m hoping to acquire one of these sometime soon though having just bought a house I find myself rather broke!
