nopedotbmp commented on It Doesn't Look Like We'll Be Seing Sega Games...:

Just a tiny nitpick, but it's a bit of a pet peeve of mine.

Both the article and most of the users in this comment section are using the term port to refer to emulation.
Porting is the process of adapting the actual code of the software to run natively on a different platform, virtual console releases do not do this.
Emulation utilizes software that attempts to virtually replicate the original hardware so that games might run on a different platform.

The virtual console service distinctly uses emulation.
While emulation has a superficially similar end result to porting, these are actually entirely different processes, and should not be confused.

I'm probably going to catch some flak for this, but here goes.

With all due respect, this topic has absolutely nothing to do with video games, and as such, I don't see how it belongs on this website.
I realize you tried to tie it in with some relevance to gaming, but the logic you used to do so is similar to if they discovered a new type of dinosaur, and you chose to publish an article on it simply because some video games have dinosaurs in them.
This is a video game news (and sometimes blog) site, and I'd very much appreciate if I could browse it without being bombarded my completely irrelevant, unnecessary, and frankly unpleasant topics such as this. I'm respectfully asking that in the future that you more carefully consider if such an article really is video game related and it's content truly fits in with the theme of a site such as this before posting it. Just because it's Japan related doesn't mean it's gaming related, and it doesn't need to be flimsily tied in as such.
