Crazy Taxi!! I guess the Dreamcast games coming to Live rumors were true.

What rumors? The Dreamcast ran on Windows CE based OS. The games are easy to emulate and convert. There are multiple DC titles on the 360's XBLA already. How was this ever a rumor?

Also, these don't look any better than a DC pumping out graphics on a VGA box. The DC had great graphics when shown a a VGA.

Please tell me which dreamcast games are already on the xbox 360

ThatArtGuy2749d ago

Hmmm... Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 is based one the DC code. Crazy Taxi was also an arcade game as well.

Shenmue 1 and 2, in 1080p and 60FPS with your choice of language and dubs. For $20 for the two.

I'm kidding but let's be honest here you where about to turn on your 360 and you held your credit card with so much joy.

Soulcalibur, Garou, Marvel vs Capcom 2, King of Fighters 98, Ikaruga, Rez, and Triggerheart Exelica. Some are not direct ports, but are modified. SSF2THDR is based on the dreamcast code too.

Wow been under a rock this past year or something? How could you miss Soul Calibur yet alone the rest?

First of all the Dreamcast did not run on Windows CE. In fact, the hardware itself had no OS besides the traditional BIOS. Instead, the OS had to be included on each game disc. Developers could then choose to work on SEGA's native OS or a specific version of Windows CE, featuring DirectX 6. CE offered easy transition to those who were accustomed to development on PC Windows environments, however it was glitchy, troublesome and lagged in performance when compared to SEGA's OS. Few games used it and the most notable release was probably Sega Rally 2, which had disapointing visuals when compared to the arcade version and considering the power of the Dreamcast.

Besides, the Xbox 360 does not run on Windows either. It runs a proprietary OS which is highly compatible with Windows. I don't think MS has ever even released a version of Windows for PowerPC architecture.

And last but not the least, to my knowledge only 4 Dreamcast games got ported to the 360 so far: Ikaruga, Soul Calibur, MvC2, and Triggerheart Exelica.

Edit @ hoyvechkin - Forgot about REZ. But Garou and KOF98 are Neo Geo games. That SSF2THDR stuff was a nice find though.

I really hope it's true. Maybe remastered versions of these old classics? That would be great.
