My Saturn came with Virtua FIghter and Daytona USA and I think one more game. I don't remember. It was a special promo for the console. This might've been Christmas 1996/January 1997 time frame.

VF2, Daytona USA, and Virtua Cop were the packaged games

Good memory. Yes it was the Christmas 1996 promotion and basically Sega's hail marry in North America. The Saturn's price had already been cut to $249 as well which in reality made it a pretty damn good deal.

Something that is kinda ironic is that although the Saturn was not known for it's 3D capabilities compared to the PS1 and N64 when you actually look back on that generation of 3D games in 2019 Virtua Fighter 2 holds up better visually than almost all of them. The reason: It ran at 704x480 resolution at 60fps in game, had fluid as hell animation and the more simplistic art design just holds up well. You really have to see it in motion to appreciate it nowadays. So many of the other games that were considered graphical power houses back in the day now just look like a blurry low resolution low frame rate mess.

I think this is a rumor based on patent applications.

I thought we would be at the point where we can play any PS1,2,3,4 game on the current system via a subscription based streaming service. Kinda like how you can access nearly any movie through Prime or Netflix.

Nintendo really needs to step up their retro online games availability...
