Sega is bringing its massive catalog of retro games to a mobile platform near you.
WELL DAMN! Really smart and tech conscious move though. I mean everyone is downloading these for free anyway on mediocre emulars on their phone anyway, so do this and you give a much easier and more refined way to do so that not only allows them to browse/discover games they never played but will certainly earn Sega some good publicity to the masses
Too bad it's mobile.
Streaming from mobile / tablet to TV is super easy now. Console controllers support bluetooth. Why complain about something that is free?
Mobile...urgh Why not give console players a bigger, better Sega Ultimate Genesis Collection
This whole thing would have been so much better on console....guess they are just pursuing the mobile market as its big in Japan.
hmm... I get a "cannot be installed on your device's country" error when attempting to install....So not available in the US yet?
I read another article that said it starts on Thurs. And today is wed. (In the u.s.) so check back tomorrow.
Started working about an hour ago (Still wednesday here) and Sonic just went free too.. you just have to manually search for it since the link on the Sega Forever site is broken (Sega delisted the $2.99 version and relisted it as free)
So this was the new Sega rebranding a while back...a major push for mobile.
Emulation is bad too. They messed up.
Seems that every major announcement is just followed up by extreme disappointment. Or maybe we're just getting older and we have seen everything.
Well, call me bummed out.
I feel like this is the opposite direction of how Nintendo do things but this seems equally as wrong. (Hard to argue against free right?) I think releasing compilations of back a catalog for consoles is a better strategy. Like Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection.
It was smart of Sega to put this on mobile. This way they can reach out to a more broad audience and introduce some of the newer generation to sega classics. I wouldn't be surprised if they put it on consoles too eventually. Now i can have all my favorite Sega games from childhood on my phone for free. About to download Comixzone and Altered Beast right now. I'm loving the nostalgia lol
Sega has a back catalog of games that are matched by very few gaming companies that are still alive in the industry. It's a shame that these titles are only coming to mobile platforms. Dark Sniper would be glad to play all of these fantastic Sega games on his PlayStation®4. Hopefully we will see Sega rise from the ashes and make their return to greatness this generation. Looking forward to seeing Shenmue I and II HD and hopefully Skies of Arcadia HD. Virtua Fighter 6, Streets of Rage 4, Virtua Cop VR, Fighter's Megamix 2 are all great potential blockbuster hits for Sega if they play their cards right and listen to their audience. Hoping for great things with the newly branded "Amazing Sega". $niper
You're reaching now Sega.
Sega does know they have better games to release again,right?
I remember getting excited for this a while ago and then I started seeing rumors about it being a mobile program almost immediately. Definitely softened the blow a bit. I'll pass.
Goddamit SEGA you raised my expectations and then smashed them into a million pieces.
On switch would of been perfect
I wish they never left the console race , I miss dreamcast! :(
Can ps vita get this too? Show some love Sega
Sega has games on every device available.. Personally i think overexposure with their IP's can harm them.. Who's going to want another sega retro console, sega classic hits on every console, and more sega classics on smart phones? IDK i think they need to take a step back and focus on QC.. Honestly Sonic Mania is the only game i really want.. Valkyria Chronicles too i suppose but theres way too many iterations everywhere.
