I remember seing a short clip of this at a gameshow waaay back when MS showed us some XBLA titles. This was the one I was looking most forward to because it's my fav game on the Sega Mega Drive.

With Sonic coming and Chess and Reversi, the future is looking bright for me on the arcade side of gaming =D

After seeing that Castle Crashers was delayed till 2008 I was worried there wasn't going to be much on XBLA that i wanted but with all these announcements my hope is renewed.

Purchased Sonic on my WIi virtual console. I like the VC selection of games, I wish the 360 was the same. MS need to do some willin and dealin, how come Nintendo is getting the best games, of course they are not optimized like the 360's for network play and such.

Well this is a good step in the right Directions.

Then again I would like to play the SEGA-CD SONIC, which I thought was great. Nice tunes also...I'm sure a lot will not remember.

nintendo owns a lot of the licensing to those old games. Plus, the virtual console is just an emulation suite, so there is little additional coding that the developers have to do to bring the game over, so its basically free money to nintendo and the publisher. xbla requires certification and qa... plus needs to be able to scale to larger resolutions.
