Yeah, if they had just supported the 32X instead of dumping it for the Saturn they could have made something with it. I played the hell out of Doom and Star Wars on the 32X.
You know, this might have been a good time for the companies to get really serious about backwards compatibility. As a kid, whenever I would talk about a new system, there was always an inevitable question from my parents about "will it also play the old games?" And as a parent myself, I can see the appeal. Being able to play Wii games on the WiiU was a great boost, as is playing 360 games on the Xbone.
If Sega had thought to make the Neptune (http://segaretro.org/Sega_Neptune
