I'm thinking of getting a sega saturn...does netlink games still work.

Post by dcxbox » Sat Dec 22, 2001 11:01 pm

i 'm thinking about buying a sega saturn for me and a few for some of my friends and some netlinks too....i just want to know can you still play the saturn netlink games online.or was it like the dreamcast with a main server and since they don't support the saturn you can't play...also I have a 56k internet and i wanna know if i could uses my isp since its 56k on the saturn cause it has a 33.6k modem i think......

and i know that its the saturn and they don't have a lot of onling games and its not that popular but i just want to play with my friends.

thanks for all your help.......

I'm not sure, but i think the Saturn netlink didn't use the internet at all. It simply dialled the telephone number of your friend and made a direct connection that way.

If this is correct (which I am fairly sure it is), then you will still be able to use the facility.

I hope this helps :)
