Sega is sending some obscure titles to both the PSN and Xbox Live Arcade starting on the 22nd of May. While PS3 players will be able to grab any title they wish, Live will be bundling them in packages.
... it depends on the quality of the port if I'm excited or not. If it's done as brilliantly as SonicCD, then hell yeah I'm excited! Sega did a great job in bringing that in HD! But if it's done as Sonic 1 and 2, then no, I'll skip it.
Streets of Rage 1 and 2 are already out. They are good, but they are just like the old ones with a better coat of paint. Online added too
Streets of Rage 2 and Golden Axe (arcade version, which they're pairing up with the MD sequels for some reason) are already on XBLA for 400 points each, with online play - do these new, more expensive versions offer something better? They're also on that Ultimate Mega Drive Collection from a few years back. The rest is just super random.. will Super Shinobi be the infamous original version? Is that the arcade or MD version of Super Hang On? All great games but man, botched delivery.
They need to start bringing some of these franchises to the current generation in the form of sequels or remakes. They'd make really good xbla and psn titles if done well. These are the games that made SEGA the daddy.
I was hoping for sonic adventure 2 battle...
Isn't this the 1000th time SEGA has released classics?
No more Sonic games? :( sad
seriously; what's the point of this if they released a handful of these already and like someone else said, they have all of these and then some on that megadrive collection which you can find for 10-15 bucks nowadays...give me something they haven't released yet like shinobi 3... and why isn't snk releasing any of their oldies from the neo-geo era?? (other than metal slug)
