Sega releases official press release for Sega Dreamcast Collection! Hits retailers in February.

January 14, 2011

Sonic Says: Where's the boxed Playstation 3 version of this?

Well, this is going to be good news or bad news depending on how you look at this next press release from Sega:

SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced that a packaged compilation of  classic titles from  SEGA’s  popular Dreamcast™  console will hit retail shelves on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the PC. The Dreamcast Collection will be available on February 25th 2011 in Europe and February 22nd in North America.

The Dreamcast Collection includes the fan favourites Sonic Adventure™, Crazy Taxi™, SEGA Bass Fishing™ and Space Channel 5™: Part 2.  Players will get to enjoy four very different Dreamcast experiences, from hopping behind the steering wheel of Crazy Taxi, to taking things a little slower by luring in their fish before catching them hook, line and sinker with SEGA Bass Fishing. Alternatively, take over as intergalactic news reporter Ulala in Space Channel 5: Part 2 and dance your way past the evil Rhythm Rogues, or make it all about speed in Sonic’s first Dreamcast outing, Sonic Adventure!

SEGA’s Dreamcast Collection features enhanced graphics for both platforms versions, providing an even more engaging experience. In addition to this, achievements and online leader boards will be available for each game providing a competitive edge and allowing players to prove their skills!

I’m a tad irrited myself because I had already bought Crazy Taxi and Sonic Adventure and I got a new hard drive for my Xbox 360 with 3 times as much space as my old one and Sega announced a boxed compilation package with all the titles that had already been released as well as the ones that will also get released on digital download services in the upcoming months, thus making my previous investments redudant. Damn it.

Not sure why a boxed Playstation 3 wasn’t included in the bundle, but since all of those games are and will be available on the PSN at some point… The addition of PC versions of these titles is a nice touch, though.
