Why have you put (4k) after all those console names?

I think X-COM might count on a technicality, I can't imagine the geosphere is rendered in software on the PS1. I wasn't involved with it, so not sure. I'll try and remember to ask Julian if he knows or remembers.

the 4k seems more meaningless when a lot of these games compromise in texture format color depth and resolution. Have you seen how blocky and choppy those explosions in PSX WC3/4 are? Not to mention imprecise vertex positions and the hacky ways of enhancing them that aren't bulletproof. The sound can often be worse as well as there's less memory for that and they'll all be downsampled with a 4-bit crunch and lose variation.

How about Doom? Not sure about the 3DO, that might've been just ye ole software renderer - but the PS1 version even did colored lights, and the SNES one included a SuperFX chip to give the console enough (...well, barely) oomph.

PSX doom is 256-width and throws spans as thin polys (like 3dfx blood/sw), that won't adapt well. It's also not a 1:1 port, given it changes/removes levels about, puts Doom2 monsters in episode 1, and sounds completely different etc. At least SNES Doom somewhat resembles the PC version though you can't really scale that up either and it has a load of play issues of its own. To quote the lost souls,"oof"

Mass Destruction (1997), first released on PC using only software rendering then on the Sega Saturn and PlayStation with 3D hardware acceleration support.
