SEGA is planning to release a new Genesis Collection for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 29 that will include over 50 games.
Segah Forevah! This collection is a must have. Its packed with the best games of all time. Sonic Streets of Rage Shinobi Gunstar Heroes Golden Axe I hope Castlevania and Thunder Force 3 is there too.
This guys biased just look at his name/pic dont listen to his opinion. Just kidding man im definitely getting it.
They should have remastered them and I'd have some potential interest. It's the same nearing 30yr old graphics, 4:3 aspect ratio.. if you're really into 30yr old gaming, then this might be OK, but I'd prefer some significant upgrades to bring them near modern graphical standards.
People hate on 'money grab' or 'lazy' frame rate / resolution bump / 16:9 remasters, but then praise 30yr old graphics in 4:3.. makes no sense.
@EeJLP Its okay muh friend. It's okay. Patience. Its for the new generation of gamers. Let them have a taste of Blast Processing goodness - the greatest games ever made. I miss Street Fighter CE. I wish they included Megaman Wily Wars but this collection is very welcome. I heard they are relaunching Shonobi, Altered Beast and Streets of Rage.
Sometimes slapping a new coat of paint on an old game doesn't work as well as you'd think without altering the gameplay as well. Some of us would just like to play the games we grew up playing, exactly as they were when we played them. If the price is right, I'm in.
Sonic brain fast and sonichu come to mind.
I would legit punt a puppy for a Vita version/release
Well... I would never hurt an animal but it seems like a good fit for portable consoles.
I too could never hurt an animal but that comment made me chuckle!
Vita already has a genesis collection well the PSP does and you can download it through the store ;)
Doesn't have as many games as this one though, no gunstar heroes, no toejam and earl, no beyond oasis
No Switch? it would be the perfect fit.
I woulda picked it up easy.
It’d be great if Sega started getting into the habit of releasing physical collections of Saturn and Dreamcast games as well.
Sadly they lost the source for Saturn games and SS is pretty difficult to emulate. SEGA just doesn't want to bother but I agree.
What do you mean by "they lost the source"? They can't emulate their own 1st party Saturn and Dreamcast games??
@mista Japan was bad about keeping games code in the 90s. SS is just really difficult to emulate so SEGA doesn't bother with it
Yeah, I remember how much more powerful it was than PS1, but they used the 2D processors as a way of texture mapping 3D objects and it was a real pain to program for. Saturn's potential was never realized because of the difficulty that came along with programming for it, and it also made emulation difficult as well. At least we get to play games with Blast Processing again!
Yep, I remember Square lost the source files for the Kingdom Hearts games on ps2. I believe for the ps3 collections they used a disc and remade the game using the assets etc they got. If I remember correct
I'd just love remasters, especially panzer dragoon
And release collections of Sega CD, on top of Game Gear.
Yes give me Sword of the Beserk. I believe that's the name
R u kidding me ? This screams switch.. id rather get that for my switch rather than my ps4
Genesis does what Nintendont
LOL! Is it payback time? Maybe Nintendo have them on Virtual Console.
I have this on PSP and Xbox 360. See no reason to buy it again.
Since when did any of those have gunstar heroes, toejam and earl, and space harrier? Psp version only had like 25 games, 360 had about 40, this one has over 50
I still have whatever missing on Genesis itself and Gunstar Heroes is on 360 as is Monster World IV. Space Harrier is on everything. Can play it in Yakuza 0 or Shenmue if you want.
I have Gunstar Heroes and Tojam and Earl on my X right now...
Hey! Is that you Target Earth? One of the greatest mecha games of all time. Man Target Earth should be in this collection! Damn! Sega needs to have more faith in their classic games. Assault Suit Leynos 2 is one of the best 2D games ever made.
Yup and the Remake of PS4 is amazing.
not again. sigh.
I don't see anybody complaining about Nintendo releasing old games again and again. They can even get away with selling them at a high price in a mini NES (which is really just a fancy emulator)
Not to mention Nintendo sells hacked rom versions from of their old games. OT The more Sega spreads their master pieces the better it is for video games in general.
That’s awesome. I considered buying the 40 dollar mini console a few months ago but I would rather just have this collection honestly.
Nice wouldn't mind revisiting Streets of Rage, Golden Axe and Earthworm Jim and revisit my childhood memories,
Same as ps3 version?
A lot better
Not when it's missing Sonic 3 and Knuckles it's not.
@ Blaq I can deal with that this could be just Volume 1 as many more great games are missing: Castlevania Bloodlines Thunder Force 3 and 4 Comix Zone Megaman Wily Wars TMNT Hyperstone Heist Eartworm Jim MUSHA Contra Had Corps Vectorman Pulseman and more
I have the Genesis Collection on PS3, wondering if it just has the same games on this.
No Sonic 3&K in this new collection
I'm sure surprised this isn't coming to switch.
Cool. I've been thinking about getting the game on the PS3, even though I still own it on the PS2, because it featured the Streets of Rage games and had the arcade version of golden axe as an extra, which the PS2 did not. Here's hoping they will be on the PS4.
Lol these games would be welcome
Lol why no Switch? Would love to play these games on the go
I already have most of these games now through BC on my X, but would by this in a heart beat if Sega makes it Play Anywhere! Please Sega do it. Playing these on my Surface Pro on the go would be amazing.
What a loss for the switch. Big time.
This is already on Steam. Maybe instead of buying the games separately, they will just bundle them all together.
But I already have emulators for classic titles.
I envy you
Yeah its call nvidia shield for digital and retron 3 for physical. The problem with these collections is they just keep porting them over and over again.
Need Eternal Champions
I be happy to see road rash on there
Probably the same as the ps3 one
I hope the sonic 3 and knuckles version is on instead of the separate ones this time
I would have loved a genesis mini console. But I'll take what I can get. I just hope the games are optimized for HD screens. I was not a fan of previously released genesis games like golden axe due to the sharp resolution lines that were made a horrible blurry mess if you used anti aliasing. Might cost more but it would be nice to see old genesis games reprogrammed for today's HD screens.
As long as there's a physical PS4 version I'm down!!
Can’t get excited when there’s no Sonic 3&K I’d rather get Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection on PS3 instead
Please Have: 1) All Sonics (including sonic spinball and sonic cd!) 2) Streets of Rage 1-3 3) Golden Axe 4) Random 90s Licenced games would be awesome (power rangers, sailor moon, Aladdin) probably wont happen but would be awesome!
Megaman 1, 2 and 3 Wily Wars.
nice, hope there are some achievements!
No sonic 3 and no knuckles can’t understand that when they’ve been in previous collections and are essentials
This has Switch and Vita written all over it and will be the only places I'd pick this up on especially the Switch. Very odd omissions.
WOA Nintendon´t????? lol
Got this on PS3 but on Vita it would be gold. Not gonna rebuy on PS4
SEGA hasnt heard of emulation
