Genesis games invade XBLA

Genesis games invade XBLA

Sega is about to fill the Xbox Live Arcade with some good ol' Genesis games. Games such as Sonic 3, Altered Beast, Shinobi, Comix Zone or Gunstar Heroes will be sold 400 MS Points each. Here is a small trailer, which should motivate you (or not) to buy some of these.

Weren't these the games on the Ultimate Genesis collection disc that came out a few months back? I would think it be cheaper to buy that at $30 and get all these games plus more.

its probably for gamers who only want one of those games... like, sonic 3.
isnt that pretty obvious?

Tempted to buy Sonic 3, but do we know when Sonic & Knuckles is coming?

The original press release said late summer 2009. Probably after the Summer of Arcade event.

I might buy the Sonic game. I grew up with some of the older ones, so that'd be sweet.

Sonic 3 only 400 points? Bargain tastic!

Gunstar Heroes was a damn great game.

Shinobi sucks ! It's none of the two Genesis games but the Arceade version.
Even Shadow Dancer on Genesis was better than this.
Sonic 3, Comix Zone and Gunstar Heroes are pretty tempting though.
Will buy for sure. :-D

Well, what can i say...the achievements were really lame, got all but two in like 30 minutes of playing (altered beast) and the remaining two are a coming. Still fun though. I jsut want Alien Soldier added to the list ^^

this.

I'm not sure if I'll pick up any of the games, but it's nice to see they've settled with a good/resonable price on them.

About the game


What's up?

    Sdarts Blizzard giving the original StarCraft for free is very generous of them. Weird to think Activision owns it, even though Blizzard has free reign. One of the best onwed by one of the worst. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered's additions - more in the article - and the fact that Blizzard will make the original StarCraft free, and let players of the original play with those of the remastered is great. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered out this summer: [url] 4K visuals, modern online play, LAN support with Blizzard Friends & Matchmaking. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Those are mods and they will be available if/once the PC version comes out. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @KORNdog: That's true. But I'm sure it will still sell a gazillion of copies. Specially if it ends up being as great as the first one. Also, very few Westerns, so people will love the "novelty". (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog although rocket powered horse racing with loop the loops, 1000ft jumps and corkscrews would be pretty entertaining. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the MP mode has tron cycles and trackmania style racing. i just can't see RDR having that sort of mass appeal unless they go ball to the wall crazy with the way they do things. (2 Hours ago)
