Sega Neptune[edit]

I wonder if the info about the Sega Neptune is worth inclusion? Yes, it was probably constructed and planned for release. But because that stuff never made the market, it's like everything about that device never happened. The device also did not affect the 32x in any way. (talk) 19:58, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

I've reverted for discussion and until you have consensus. Apologize for edit summary. I didn't realize you had already brought the edit to discussion.(Littleolive oil (talk) 17:02, 1 July 2015 (UTC))
Actually, Sega's proclivity for announcing things that never came to fruition damaged their reputation with retailers. It's not that easy to sweep history under the rug.TheTimesAreAChanging (talk) 18:54, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Final release[edit]

I've removed the following phrase: "with the add-on's final release being Darxide in PAL territories." I'm not completely sure whether this is meant to essentially say

a) "In PAL territories, the 32X's final release was Darxide, though it was not the final release globally."


b) "The 32X's final release was Darxide. It was released only in PAL territories."

but either one has problems. (a) places a peculiar focus on the PAL realm, since the article makes no mention of what the final 32X release was in North America or Japan. (b) is, as far as I can tell, flat-out incorrect. All the sources I've seen indicate that Darxide was released in 1995, while the North America-only Spider-Man: Web of Fire was released in 1996. Those are the dates they were copyrighted, and a review in GamePro confirms Web of Fire didn't come out until 1996. The cited source does indeed say Darxide was "the last 32X title released worldwide", but I find the source's reliability concerning release dates highly questionable given that it says Darxide was released in 1995 at the top and 1996 in the body of the article.--Martin IIIa (talk) 19:11, 10 January 2016 (UTC)
