    Classic Sega Games Coming To Xbox Live and PSN



    Summer is on its way, which in the gaming world usually means a rather dry period with few big-name releases. While it also means E3 and the chance for gamers to prepare for the rush of A-list titles for the end of the year, it still means a lot of waiting without much to play. Fortunately, Sega has decided to follow through on their promise of releasing some of their classic games for download beginning this week.

    On May 22nd, the PlayStation Network will have the following available for download: the original arcade port of Wonder Boy in Monster Land, Wonder Boy in Monster World, Monster World IV, the original arcade version of Super Hang-On,Revenge of Shinobi, and Alex Kidd in Miracle World. All of these games will be priced at $4.99, and can provide an interesting look at Sega’s early history. Particularly Alex Kidd, which was originally slated to be Sega‘s star franchise before the creation of Sonic the Hedgehog.


    Meanwhile, on May 23rd, Xbox Live Arcade will have the above titles condensed into separate packages for easy download. The first three titles will be packaged as the Monster World Collection, while the other three will be bundled together as theAlex Kidd and Co. Collection. Both packages will be priced at 800 Microsoft Points.


    On May 30th two more collections will appear on Xbox Live. The first will be theGolden Axe Collection, containing the original arcade version of the first Golden Axe and the Genesis sequels. Next comes the Streets of Rage Collection, which will have all three of the Sega Genesis titles. Both series are famous Genesis franchises and are excellent side-scrolling beat-em-ups: well worth a player’s 800 Microsoft Points.


    This seems like a good move on Sega’s part, especially after the rather heavy financial hits they’ve taken. A solid number of downloads could be enough to help them get back in the game again, and is something Sega is obviously counting on. However, this could come off as the company relying a little too much on nostalgia, as a number of these titles – particularly the collections coming at the end of the month on XBLA – were released during the height of Sega’s popularity. Still, nostalgia has proven to be a viable and profitable market, so it really depends on perspective.
    FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, i'm hoping they re-release the original Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & knuckles with trophy support! Also WHEN are we gonna see Sonic Adventure 2??

    I don't know if it's that or if it's the fact that there is a market for it. May as well capitalize on it while the getting is good.

    Where's my Onimusha HD collection??? Dawn of Dreams FTW!!!

    Well.... Jet Set Radio has already been confirmed, either as a rerelease or a sequel.... could this mean... SHENMUE???

    Sonic Adventure 2 wouldn't hurt either.

    ^^This!!^^ A few of these games are already on the PSN, not only that you can go out and buy Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection for the PS3 for cheap!! IF they go this route (which they will), then they must include the whole Sonic series on there (Sonic, Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and the Sonic 2/Knuckles game as well). Just my take on it.

    It would be cool if you can contact them sega people. Then these questions could be answered, and we could stop asking useless questions (any question that cannot be answered is pretty useless

    Really hope the Streets of Rage series comes to the PSN. I already have them in the Mega Drive Collection, but would love to get SOR3 for trophies. Probably will skip the first title though.

    Alex Kidd in Shinobi World would be awesome to play again.

    Sonic Adventure 2 would be awesome, one of my favorite games of all time like 7 years ago, I played it almost non-stop. It would be sweet to see it even with a platinum, but I don't see that happening.

    I have countless copies in varying formats of most SEGA titles listed, but i have a knackered Dreamcast so of course, like any sane, rational person, i want a Shenmue Collection yesterday.
