OMG

I only want one game and then I can die in peace:

PHANTASY STAR ONLINE

Imagine the classic pso with full PSN support, trophies, updates... and with a superior connection to the allmighty 56K of the Dreamcast :D

Fuck yea

PS: Dark Falz pwns you!

Hellsvacancy3113d ago

"full PSN support, trophies, updates"

You wont get any of that friend, u dont get any of that with the PS1 games on there so i wouldnt expect that 2 change

:-(

GrieverSoul3113d ago

Dude, I just shed a tear by thinking that!
You know how many hours I played PSO?!?! More than 200 hours! The best part?! I played them OFFLINE!! I swear! I got to level 100 with all the magic except one, dozens of diferent MAGs and lots of rare weapons! I got to see some rare monsters too! That game is a BEAST in terms of item content! Great gameplay and by Dreamcast´s time standard, great visuals!

Oh, PSO with full online support... Shenmue on PSN... boy oh boy...

Information Minister3113d ago

This is great news! I already have Sonic Adventure on my Dreamcast, but I'll be first in line to buy Crazy Taxi and also Sonic Adventure 2 if it gets released.

@ Hells - According to the article, the games do feature online leaderboards and trophy/achievement support.

RageAgainstTheMShine3113d ago (Edited 3113d ago )

this was leaked long ago together with PS2 backward emulation which is equally better news.

Another 1UP for PS3 gamers.

POWAH STONE 2!!!

" Launched in Europe on October 14th, 1999, the SEGA Dreamcast is one of the most beloved and critically acclaimed consoles of all time. Featuring a software library of over 650 titles, the system was widely hailed as being ahead of its time, and was the first to introduce online console gaming, with Internet support for games through an inbuilt modem." - Sega was first not Microsoft.

Redempteur3113d ago

@Hellsvacancy

they said that online leaderboard, surround sound and trophy will be added for the games ...

Now i wait for the price ..

-Alpha3113d ago

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD POWER STONE 2 IS ALL I NEED!

OMG! My Sega is BARELY alive, and I was so afraid for my games, F YEAH!

And it's coming to BOTH XBL and PSN which is even better!!

Please, let these games just COME. SEGA RULES!

DarkFinalGod3113d ago

Minimox163113d ago

yeah my too!! :) :)
and with "all-new enhancements and features such as high resolution visuals and surround sound. Online leader boards are now implemented, allowing players to compare their skills with friends across the world! In addition to this, all-new Achievement and Trophy integration"

its all win for us gamers :D

GodsHand3113d ago

Resident Evil: Code Veronica???

What does Sega have to do with this game? Did Sega buy up the title from Capcom? I know it was released from the Dreamcast, but Sega has nothing to do with that title, you want this title your going have to ask Capcom for that. As for the rest of Sega - Dreamcasts titles I would not mind getting some of them.

WildArmed3113d ago

I think it had more to do with the emulation of Dreamcast games vs the game itself.
I dont think Capcom could bring it over w/o their permission due to contracts I assume

kewlkat0073113d ago

Jet Set Radio....Skies of Arcadia...Armada...Legaacy of Kain...Power Stone 2....Virtual On....Typing of The Dead...Bangai-O....are some of my Favorites.

Jeff2573113d ago

Id love to also get Jet Set Radio and Virtual On for PSN. I know XBL already got Virtual On but since I dont have a 360 Id love the chance to play it again. I spent so many hours playing that in the arcades.

Jamegohanssj53113d ago

I would just like WWF Attitude and WWF Royal Rumble.

TGSI

ATLGAMER3113d ago

It came out in japan but not here I want....I just rember flying and powers similar to Dbz and one know

Darkstorn3113d ago

Shenmue and Jet Set Radio for me.

Shang-Long3113d ago

dang... im gonna need to upgrade my hard drive... still running the 40 gig on my ps3

Tapewurm3113d ago

"Daytona USA, Sega Rally 2, Virtual On: OT, Skies of Arcadia, Jet Set Radio, and Phantasy Star (Hydro Thunder would be nice too, but I think MS bought that up) ...then my PS3 will be happy.....would also be nice if they would put some Saturn titles up as well and make them PS3/PSP compatible..... Panzer Dragoon, Panzer Dragoon Zwie, and Panzer Dragoon Saga, Burning Rangers, Shining Force 3, Sega Rally, and Daytona CCE. Just hoping there :)"

That would be sweeeet.

yess
dreamcast had some great games i heard there where some really cool shoot em ups on it cant wait fore shenmeu i missed out on that classic

e-p-ayeaH3113d ago (Edited 3113d ago )

Why ppl insist on this!? Are the games remastered in HD or something?

Plus i prefer playing these games with a dreamcast controler.

EDIT: Still this is great news for ppl that just want to play a ported version in their x360 or PS3

ThatCanadianGuy3113d ago

Finally, after sifting through dozens of opinion pieces and poorly written blogs..
I've found it! Actual NEWS! Actual wonderful game related news! :D

Great move by SEGA.

Abash3113d ago

Made my day, great news! PLEASE let Sonic Adventure 2 Battle also make it's way to PSN & XBL :)

gumgum993113d ago
