|Mega Man X3|
A port of Mega Man X3 for the Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn, adding in the standard FMV cutscenes and a full CD audio soundtrack to boot. What more could one ask for?

This version was included on Mega Man X Collection, released in North America on January 10, 2006 for the PlayStation 2 and GameCube, and formed the base of the PC port that Americans did get.
