Many years ago, time sure flies, drx at hidden-palace released the prototype by Argonaut Software of X (aka Lunar Chase or Eclipse) for SNES which I believe is the NesGlider ported to SNES Jez San often talks about (the demos are dated back to May 1991). 3D performances weren't good enough on a stock SNES so Nintendo accepted to invest a million into the creation of the Super FX chip. Star Fox was then developed and became the first polygonal-based console game to sell many million units. The rest is history. For those that never seen it in motion I made a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCNt8EAIWGM EDIT: Argh forgot the SNES icon.
