The new additions to Connectix Virtual Game Station 1.2 are: improved game compatibility with the newest Dexdrive games. This means that if you're playing one of the older versions of the game, you'll probably have problems running it on your connectix. The new version supports both the new Dexdrive games as well as the older versions. This gives it the best chance of being able to run on your computer. Some of the other additions include: ability to import/backup Dexdrive game files, improved VGA output, support for several other video cards, better memory management, and an updated system menu.
There are other similar video game platforms on the market, such as the Game Cube and the Nintendo DS. However, none of these allow you to play games that are compatible with a regular personal computer, with the exception of a select few. That's what makes connectix virtual game station a better choice - it supports all of the formats that a regular personal computer will support, and it has the option of using a memory card in place of a hard drive for extra storage space. In addition, it provides more ways for you to connect to other users, allowing you to play against them and see their progress.
