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.

EeJLP-270d ago

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

gamingunited270d ago

Well... I would never hurt an animal but it seems like a good fit for portable consoles.

Darth Gamer270d ago

I too could never hurt an animal but that comment made me chuckle!

RosweeSon270d ago

Vita already has a genesis collection well the PSP does and you can download it through the store ;)

isarai270d ago

Doesn't have as many games as this one though, no gunstar heroes, no toejam and earl, no beyond oasis

ZaWarudo271d ago

No Switch? it would be the perfect fit.

CobraKai270d ago

I woulda picked it up easy.

PhoenixUp271d ago

It’d be great if Sega started getting into the habit of releasing physical collections of Saturn and Dreamcast games as well.

Segata271d ago

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.

Mista2018270d ago

What do you mean by "they lost the source"? They can't emulate their own 1st party Saturn and Dreamcast games??

Segata270d ago

@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

TheCommentator270d ago

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!

Teflon02270d ago

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

Tetsujin270d ago

And release collections of Sega CD, on top of Game Gear.

Minute Man 721270d ago

Yes give me Sword of the Beserk. I believe that's the name
