You mean that Quake II will run but VR would not....
WTF??? Really? Could someone confirm that?

edit: I was just curious and did a quick check on google.
Wiki came up with that...

Due to the complexity of the Model 1 board, a home console version seemed unlikely, until 1994 when a cartridge design incorporating the Sega Virtua Processor on an extra chip was created to enable a version on the Genesis/Mega Drive. This chip was extremely expensive to manufacture, leading Sega to price the Genesis version of Virtua Racing unusually high: US$100 in the United States[2] and 70 in the United Kingdom.

Cant we emulate that crapy chip on bigger cpus like 040/060?
I mean the genesis itself was 68000 only.So there would be plenty of horsepower left...
