Genesis gaming coming to Steam

Sega has announced that on June 1st they will be releasing the first of several waves of Genesis games onto the Steam platform. The PC is the last format to get a Genesis release as both PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii currently have several titles available. The first wave will consist of the following games:

  • Comic Zone
  • Altered Beast
  • Crack Down
  • Gain Ground
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Shadow Dancer: the Secret of Shinobi
  • Golden Axe
  • Sonic 3D Blast
  • Vectorman
  • Shinobi III
  • Space Harrier II

There is also rumours of several other popular games coming in the following waves but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. As far as pricing goes, they have decided to pitch each of these "from $2.99" which is much cheaper than the Wii virtual console versions of the games. 

These games will be available from sources other than Steam but details on other services have not yet been released.

Look out for the release on June 1st.
