SEGA announced today that classic Dreamcast games will be returning to gamer's TVs, this time via XBLA and PSN.
smart move by sega. I hope they add almost the whole library on both systems as well.
I agree, I loved my Dreamcast. I am excited for Sonic Adventures, hopefully Jetset Radio makes it's way to PSN along with Crazy Taxi.
GAME OVER YEAH!!!!!!!!!
I hope Capcom are on board, some of Capcoms best console games where on the dreamcast. Cannon Spike Power Stone 1-2 Resident Evil Code: Veronica Tech Romancer Giga Wing 1-2 Heavy Metal: Geomatrix Mars Matrix: Hyper Solid Shooting Project Justice any of those in HD would be insane. And obviously Sega's games as well, this is great news.
Crazy taxi for me mostly as it was just amazing..
sonic adventures was just remarkable and is in my top 10 list of all time favorite games. crazytaxi was to much fun.
... but also amazing games like Nights (Saturn) and SonicCD (MegaCD). Great GREAT news though. Very happy about this :)
YEah there are tons of games I never got to play and would like to try out.
Exactly! Shenmue is the best gem in the Dreamcast library.
It took 8 comments before Shenmue came up. I was just about to go "In before the onslaught of Shenmue requests" but this is decidedly tamer than I thought it would be.
And here I thought the 15 other articles about the same thing were fake. Good thing gaming.icrontic came along to confirm it. /sarcasm
Thats good news. The Dreamcast was amazing and one of my all time favorite consoles. Had it had a DVD player built in, it wouldn't have died, I preferred it over the PS2 actually and was sad to see it go. Sonic Adventure Shenmue Crazy Taxi Out trigger Jet grind Radio Please!
AS MUCH AS I LOVED THE DREAMCAST sega stop being desperate. living on the past and letting other companys now make games for you .make a console. you made good consoles but didnt stick around on them.as for software i beleave you should stick with selling consoles.you made your time with sonic witch is how really many think sega as being from sonic series.you did well so please make another dreamcast for this gen. you showed us you can do future games 128bit b4 we was ready and 32bit psx still lead.because you stoped on production. i vote for a new console that really would put the sh*ts on MS,give nintendo a old rival.let alone playstation.
Skies of Arcadia Grandia II Armada RE : Code Veronica These are my favorites of DC. Still have mine (black sport edition) with around 30 original games.
I wish they would tap some of the Sega Master systems games as well the library was great for that console aswell. But Dreamcast games is just as exciting bring on Shenmue.
The Dreamcast version of Ecco the Dolphin was absolutely phenomenal, and then let's not forget one of my favorite games of all time: Toy Commander. Toy Commander was freaking brilliant.
POWER STONE 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There's going to be like a Dreamcast channel? Having a Dreamcast section on PSN/XBL will be great, and a great way to support Sega. Annoying thing is though, I recently spent like 200 squid getting a Dreamcast and 20 of the games considered the must own titles, and have sank 100s of hours into Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia with no trophey support!! LOL, but least I had the original control and VMU, can't beat the Dreamcast :)
Seaman.. anyone? ))) Just kidding.
This is great news for dreamcast fans, but seriously people if you have at least a cd burner and a program called disc juggler, which is free! You can download any dreamcast game you want online at no cost. Also, it goes straight onto a cdr!!! Theres an awesome site that has just about every dreamcast game ever made, including imports! Ive been playing games i never had and they are the exact game file. Its VERY easy to use. Should check it out people!
Actually I did use only pirated games for Dreamcast back then. But that was looong ago. Now I have a descent job that earns me money (ever heard of that? ))) ), so I want to give Sega full credits for its games, so they can finally make a Shenmue 3. So remakes of Sonic Adventures and Crazy Taxy are definately a buy for me. Because they are really great games and they worth that. Also, AFAIR, there isn't a correctly working version of the D2 game for 700 MB CD-R (only for 800MB ones that are long gone now). Because the game put a good use to a GD-ROM medium.
Well, hey man. I was only trying to be helpful and offer a great outlet to playing those hard to find and classic games people might have missed the boat on! For your information, i have a ton of original dreamcast games and even bought a dreamcast on day 1. I am somewhat of a dreamcast collector even. I supported Sega over the years more than you could imagine, so you have no idea what you are talking about. Have spent plenty of money on consoles and games, have given thousands of dollars to them all!!! To give more money to xbox live and psn for a downloadable dreamcast game seems kinda stupid, when you can just download the exact same thing onto cd and have every game you can choose from! You think sega gets all the profits and youre doing them a favour? lol, hell no! Ive done plenty of service for sega already and would be one of the first ones to blow whatever money i had on a dreamcast 2. Theres nothing wrong with ripping games from a long gone and classic console as the dreamcast, they dont lose any money on it. Its not like ripping ps3 or 360 games. Get a grip. Especially when they only take cdrs! You obviously are either too lazy or just simply dont know what youre doing when it comes to ripping a dreamcast game. Another thing you got wrong, there is a working version of D2, i even have it on 700mb cd, use disc juggler. Itll find room, if not you can put it on a cdr with more space and yes they still do make 800mb cds lol. You sound like that greedy bastard Lars from Metallica who cries about people downloading his tunes for free when they guy has more money than anyone here and is set for life. Hell, i still even pay for cds cuz im an avid old school collector of 80s music. Doesnt mean i wont download a rare mp3 from limewire every now and then, because i just simply cant get it on cd or its been discontinued! Cant you do both? Some people are just plain clueless these days!
SnakePlissken, I don't blame people, who use pirated games or anything else. And I didn't disagree with you. Sometimes you really don't have any money. I've been there myself. Especially, when you are a schoolboy or too much into videogames (I have 9 consoles and a PC) or music, like you or myself. But I think, if one have money, he should buy games. At least sometimes. I also think that every hardcore gamer knows about pirated games and where to get them. And where to get a modified console to use ripped games. It's not a secret or something. Go download a game from black cats and play it on an emulator. But you really should do it quietly. Not to advocate such way of gaming loudly. Because it's really damaging the industry.
about dreamcast games coming to psn back in february? seems like it was spot on, but remember that it also said that the ps2 store was real also, so im expecting the ps3 to have the largest console based online store in history.
Test drive Le Mans(i think it was) and I liked PSo(hehehe). Dreamcast games were so easily burned *sigh* Cool idea then,now I'm not so sure.....damn you 'Mod chip Merv'!!
