Retro Rogue Posted March 11, 2010 Share Posted March 11, 2010 I would update that page to include the info that that MicroBox is cited in Sony's PS2 patents which is no surprise since the later PS2 case turned on its side does resemble the MicroBox. That's elsewhere on the site I believe. But yes, many of the people over at SCEA at the time were ex-Atari people (from Inc. and Corp.) Looking back, it may have been foolish that they didn't release that ST Game System way back when, There were working on one back then actually. That morphed in to the Panther which morphed in to the Jaguar. If I recall, the XE Game System's main purpose was to encourage the game companies to not stop developing software for the XE line since they had pretty much made the XE the scapegoat for the industry's piracy problem.... It was their attempt to do the 5200 "right", while using up the large stores of 8-bit software and such. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
