Sega announces Dreamcast Collection for Xbox 360, PC

Sega has announced their plans to release a collection of Dreamcast games for the Xbox 360 and PC later this year. Fans of the ill-fated system will be able to play Sonic Adventure, Crazy Taxi, Sega Bass Fishing and Space Channel 5: Part 2 from this February. Unfortunately, all of the games are either already available or due to be released through the Xbox Live Arcade service, so the offering here is not exactly new to gamers, but the chance to be able to own the games in a physical disc format is sure to appeal to the anti-digital crowd.

The releases include enhanced graphics, achievements, and leaderboards, the latter two already being a requirement of Xbox Live Arcade titles. Playstation 3 owners need not suffer, as the announced titles are already available on the Playstation Network (with the exception of Space Channel 5: Part 2 and Sega Bass Fishing, which will see a simultaneous release with their Xbox Live Arcade counterparts)

Announced for a release date of February 25th in Europe and the 22nd in North America, the price is yet to be announced, though a former GameStop listing would have us believe it will cost around $30, which makes the collection cheaper than buying the four games separately. How well the collection will do is anyone's guess, but the already-released titles have received rather average reviews, with the Xbox 360 version of Sonic Adventure scoring 48 on Metacritic and Crazy Taxi scoring 60.

damn, no ps3 love and I showed so much love to that failing system of yours sega.... *cries*

It says IN the article that these games are already either available on PS3, or coming at the same time they come to the XBox...

Cmon SEGA you made some other good games during the Dreamcast days. Where's Jet Grind Radio? Or Shenmue 1? Or Toy Commander?

Or Skies of Arcadia...

With Sega's property catalog it's mind boggling what they release honestly... Why not make another Panzer Dragoon? Does no one there remember what Sega's done in the past?

Yeah, having had Genesis, Saturn and Dreamcast I can attest for the many great games they did in the past, and the most important, the great variety and creativity they used on their games. I sure wish they would release new games based on their great IP.

This collection is horrible. come back when you have a greatest hits collection. With sonic, power stone, skies of arcadia, shenmue, super magnetic neo, jet grind radio, power stone, and so on.

Indeed.

Fortunately my Dreamcast still works perfectly. It's a shame Sega ran their company into the ground before it could show it's full potential.

The XBLA version of Crazy Taxi had all the product licences removed (Pizza Hut, KFC, etc.) and also the original soundtrack was replaced, so I'm assuming it will be the same in this collection?

I hope not I want to play Crazy Taxi on my PC.

Like some of the comments above, I'd pay a little more if SEGA released Shenmue 1 and Shenmue 2 for PC. Shenmue graphics was on a whole new level back in the days.

Kinda lame .... theres cooler games they coulda put on there

But didnt that sega bass fishing game require that fishing rod? I dont remember
