Post Best version of Policenauts?
Hi. This is my first post here and I have to ask you which version of Policenauts is the best?

Recently, I bought the version for Sega Saturn. I already have a converter for my Saturn (Pro Universal Replay) so probebly, I can play it on my PAL Saturn. I'm not sure if the Playstation version is any better. If it is, can someone tell me the diffrence? I had a Goldstar 3Do which I sold for about a month ago, is the 3Do version any better then the other ports or is it just like the other versions? I know that there is no region lock on 3Do so it would maybe be easier to play that version since I would not need any converter.

One last question, some people have told me that there already is a translated version of this game that I can download and other says that the translation isn't ready to be released yet. I've used google and searched but I can't find it anywhere to download, so I guess that the translation isn't completed yet.

personally i love the saturn version, but maybe im being biased because the saturn is one of my favourite consoles.
i believe that the saturn has a few extra bits to it though.
i like the fact that the 3do premium came with the mouse and mat but i thought it could of done with a light gun.
saturn came with that cool little artbook, but no mouse or gun with it.
pc 8823 came with next to nothing but hey its got a nice big box filled with alot of cardboard.
and psx well came with nothing but there was the private collection for psx.

Ah, thanks for the quick answer. :)
Btw, I bought the game on the Swedish auction-sita Tradera (a Swedish version of Ebay). Here's a link.

199 kr is about 25 dollars. Good deal or not? It felt ok for me since I haven't seen the game on Tradera this year.

Well, I bought the game yesterday and I'm still waiting for it to come with the mail. I will check if the stickers are including with my copy once I got it. But I belive that I will enjoy that game since I loved Snatcher, even if I've only played the Mega CD-version which I've heard is worse then many of the other ports that was released in Japan.

can you read japanese???
if not i think you may have a few problems with policenauts.
you do know also that the patch that is being made is for psx vesion only.
people bad mouth the sega cd version of snatcher but i still think it is a brilliant version of the game and in my opinion it is not the worst version

I can't read Japanese. Too bad that the patch is only made for the Playstation-version, but I guess I will get my hands on that version sometime too. Also, I'm collecting games for both the Saturn and the Playstation so I'm not dissapointed at all. :)

Snatcher on the Mega CD is pretty much the only way I can play Snatcher in english. Also, my copy of Snatcher is signed by Kojima ;)

I've never played MSX, so no.

Well, first I got the game (not signed) on my birthday when I was 14 years old. In november 2008, Hideo Kojima visited Stockholm and it takes like a half hour for me to get there so I just took the chance. ^^

From what I hear the PC98 version has the most dialogue but among the console versions the best one is the Saturn version.
