    psp More About Sega Genesis Collection

    News via PSPFanboy

    If you're into classic games like me, you're probably eagerly awaiting the Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console feature so that you can play not only some Nintendo games, but some Genesis games as well. For those of you Sony fanboys that'll avoid the Wii like its a smelly grandmother, there's finally an alternative: Sega Genesis Collection, a compliation of nearly thirty Genesis games is heading to the PSP. The disc will not only come loaded with the games, but exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage. PSP owners can rejoice in knowing that an exclusive wireless multiplayer mode is being created just for them. Maybe it'll even support Game Sharing? (I hope so!) Here's the list of games:

    Alex Kidd
    Altered Beast
    Bonanza Bros.
    Columns
    Comix Zone
    Decap Attack
    Ecco the Dolphin
    Ecco: The Tides of Time
    Ecco Jr.
    Eternal Champions
    Flicky
    Gain Ground
    Golden Axe
    Golden Axe II
    Golden Axe III
    Phantasy Star II
    Phantasy Star III
    Phantasy Star IV
    Ristar
    Shadow Dancer: Secret of Shinobi
    Shinobi III
    Sonic the Hedgehog
    Sonic the Hedgehog 2
    Super Thunderblade
    Sword of Vermillion
    Vectorman
    Vectorman 2
    Virtua Fighter 2

    Hmm, jaja, poor Dgen... (just kidding), what would be very insteresting a Sega Saturn Emu (I can imagine myself playing Radiant Sirvergun... Sweet...) but thinking a little more about the Sat's what-a-mess hardware it doesn't seem very likely....

    Are the genesis and the megadrive one and the same?
    Wasn't the megadrive 32bit? Please excuse my ignorant noobishness

    These games are old and should be public domain. None of the original makers are going to see a dime from these releases, it's just vultures trying to pick meat off of old carcasses.

    Get an Emulator, it's FREE. It's the best thing you can do with Homebrew. And it encourages investors to invest their money in NEW GAME COMPANIES, making NEW GAMES! Don't buy old game collections, they just hurt new game development.

    Genesis and Megadrive are both the same and both 16 bit. Megadrive was the european/japanese name if I recall correctly.

    Yes, I'm sure game developers everywhere are going to just start reselling old games and never make any new.

    Personally I think it's a bit of a lame lineup.

    I mean, where the hell are any of the streets of rage games? Outrun is great too, and the original fifa on the MD is one of their best versions IMO
