Do Funtastic consoles have better video display?; MegaMania has pics to prove it!

Okay correct me if Im wrong, but the funtastic models do NOT support s-video correct? doesn't that make it a moot point? Surely an old model outputting s-video has a superior picture to a funtastic composite picture.

I must be confused then, I thought i remembered reading somewhere that nintendo took out svideo support on the newer models as a cost cutting initiative. Maybe Im just thinking of the PAL n64s. Anyway Ill definitely be picking up one now just so I can make my own comparisons. Lots of good info to be read in this thread.

In general I would discourage maxing out your tvs sharpness level, I mean to each his own but at some level you WANT a bit of blur, most older consoles rely on it and it can really pixelate and distort some textures.

even if you achieved maximum sharpness your still looking at aliased 3d models... some things just look better with a smudge of blur.
