The Return of the Saturn?

According to AM2, Shen Mue will have more than the simple mini games and 80's arcade ports already mentioned. At some point in the title, Ryo is able to purchase non other than a Saturn, one of Sega's more memorable systems(though what kind of memories varies depending on who you ask).

Ryo can also procure Saturn games. The crazy thing is that the games will actually be playable somehow within Shen Mue. Sort of like the way Space Harrier and Hang On will be included in the game's arcade areas. How this will work isn't entirely clear, but there has been mention of needing the actual Saturn version of a game to use it in Shen Mue.

It seems very strange to include this feature in the game. On the other hand, Shen Mue already seems loaded with strange features. I suppose one more wouldn't hurt at this point.
