Sega to bring Dreamcast games to the Xbox 360 and PS3

Crazy Taxi

In May we reported that Sega was set to lay off 73 workers and they were going to dedicate their entire San Francisco office to the production of downloadable games. Since then it seems they have been hard at work getting a couple of titles ready for download. Sega is going to offering popular games from the Dreamcast console on the PlayStation Network and the Xbox Live Arcade.

The first two games to be released by Sega on the two systems will be Crazy Taxi and Sonic Adventure. There was not an exact release date announced but they did say they will be released this fall.

Sega Vice President of Digital Business told USA Today, "The Dreamcast is fondly remembered by a large community of dedicated fans as a console that was ahead of its time in terms of graphics, quality and online gaming. There are few things that are more requested from us than making Dreamcast classics available for download in today's digital market place."

The games will be updated to include surround sound, high resolution graphics, achievements and trophies.

No other games have officially been announced to be released on the Xbox 360 or PS3 from Sega, but the Dreamcast has a 650 game library to work from.

I'd love to see both Jet Set Radio games released! I know only the first one was on the Dreamcast, and Jet Set Radio Future was on the Xbox, but it would be a great bundle. Charge 1,200 points for the lot, or even get away with charging 1,600, and it'd sell well.

The Dreamcast was renowned for its online service, but for the wrong reasons. SEGA promised a lot and delivered very little - but they were very ambitious and it paved the way for the online services of today.

Still love to play Crazy Taxi - used to love playing it in an arcade!!

This is GREAT news. I hope we can see Skies of Arcadia. That was a really great game.

I would love to play that game again. What an amazing game. With Sega's game library, there's really a lot they could re release (Or develop sequels to)...

I already own Shenmue for DC. How about Shenmue2 for DC that was never released. That's be the biggest announcement ever for Shenmue diehard fans.

dont forget segarally2.
powerstone
the 1st SoulCalibur
airforce Delta.
all ntsc 60hz versions on the PAL ps3 please. none of that slow 50hz crap please.

Shenmue
Crazy Taxi
Jet Set Radio
Grandia
Chu Chu Rocket
Super Magnetic Neo
Sonic Adventure

Those were all top notch DC games that I would buy instantly if available in the new consoles.

I know it will never happen but Id love to see Sega making consoles like they did back in the Megadrive/Genesis days along with the games to match.

Can't hold on much longer (but I will never let go)
I know it's a one-way track (tell me now how long this will last)
I'm not gonna think this way (nor will I depend on others)
Close my eyes and feel the burn (now I know what I've gotta do)

Open your heart, and you will see...

I'm sure they won't include the Offspring soundtrack either which will kinda ruin it for me. Would be nice if they fixed the draw distance in both games but not getting my hopes up...
