SNES, but genesis' graphix were a lot better....

 

How exactly? The SNES is capable of displaying 256 simultaneous colours out of a possible palette of 65536. The Genesis is only capable of 16. Graphics tend to look more grainy and dithered on the Genesis than the SNES.

Look carefully at the pix.The dithering in the genesis is extremely obvious, especially for digitised images (ie MK) due to lack of colours. Try setting your monitor to 16 colour mode and then to 256 colours and note the difference in quality. That's the sort of difference in capability of the 2 systems. In adddition, the SNES graphics hardware is capable of more effects like scaling/rotation (mode 7) and alpha blending.

SNES. It also had superior sound processor compared to the Genesis. MODE7 = Serious Ownage.

Yeah. SPCs were pretty awesome for their time. The only thing that the genesis beat the SNES on was CPU speed. SNES = Western Design Center 65816 3.58Mhz, Genesis = Motorola 68K 7.61 Mhz. but the great support hardware more than made up for that.

True. Not to mention that the special chips that were designed for the SNES (DSP1-4, SPC7100, S-DD1, SuperFX1/2 etc.) made the SNES more versatile than anything else on the market at that time.
