Dreamcast Games Coming to PS3, Xbox 360

By Chris Faylor, Jun 10, 2010 10:20am PDT Following numerous rumors and a leaked internal document, SEGA today confirmed that it will be bringing "classic titles from its popular Dreamcast console" to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Arcade downloads.

"Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi will be the first two classics made available," the company says, "with Sonic leading the pack in Fall 2010 for the 11th anniversary of the launch of the Dreamcast in the United States." According to the Sega PressVault, both titles are due to arrive in Q3 2010, so between July 1 and September 30, 2010.

The company boasts that the re-releases will "incorporate all-new enhancements and features such as high resolution visuals and surround sound," plus online leaderboards and integrated support for Achivements (Xbox 360) / Trophies (PlayStation 3).

A re-release of Jet Set Radio / Jet Grind Radio has been rumored, but not confirmed.

    • While PDS was an awesome Saturn RPG, from what I recall from an interview with someone over at Sega, there is almost no chance of seeing a re-release of it. Apparently they lost most of the original art and/or code resources for the game. They would have to reverse engineer the game from the Saturn CDs I think they said.

      Just found on the PDS wikipedia page: "Because of the title’s limited print run, English-language copies of Panzer Dragoon Saga are, today, something of a rarity. What copies do exist tend to be recognized as valuable by their owners and, as a result, copies tend to sell for a relatively high price on eBay, often raking in over $200 US[3]. Although the game is frequently requested to be re-released on a modern format by fans, there is apparently no interest from within Sega in re-issuing it for any console whatsoever. Team leader Yukio Futatsugi has also confirmed that the original source code for the game has been lost, adding further weight to the unlikelihood of a port. There is now a demand from fans for the source code to be recovered.[1] Despite its scarcity, the game still enjoys a persistent following."
