As well as Playstation and even SNES, NES. I rest my case, that's what I've been saying. They might not be as common, especially on Sony's platform given they don't have control over much pre-PS content, but they do happen.

Again, Ducktales. It can happen and has happened. Obviously with some SNES era titles there's not much you can do to improve them visually. Something like Super Mario World for example the blocky sprites are most of the appeal. With something like Metroid though I think the appeal is more in the atmosphere than the actual look of the sprites. Plus with games like Super Metroid you don't need to imagine too much. Fans have already done the work for you: http://www.dsogaming.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/super_met... I think something like that could be done and would be quite an improvement over the VC Also not going to happen at all but Donkey Kong Country did use pre-rendered sprites. So if they re-rendered them at a higher resolution you'd get something much, much better than the scaled version on the VC. Same with games like Yoshi's Island. Again though I'm not saying that they will happen or even should but just that if they did it would be a huge visual improvement. With the right title you could get something awesome.
