Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi on PSN/XBLA

Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi on PSN/XBLA

We already more or less knew that Sega was going to republish some old Dreamcast games on PSN and XBLA, but now it's official. Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi will be the first ones, screens inside.

If it's priced at 800 MSP or less i'll totally get Crazy Taxi, sonic though? Hell no, i have nothing but bad memories of that little blue fucker after his 3d-debut. I bought the damn DC at the release with Sonic Adventure and was just so disappointed. i played it for hours upon hours hoping that it'd start getting good but sadly that never happened :P

Must have! Give me both Shenmues, Skies of Arcadia and Sonic Adventure 2 and I'll sell my Dreamcast along with all its games.

:( Wish it was Sonic Adventure 2, my favourite game of all time. (Mass Effect 2 comes a close second).

I like SA's 'hub world' system though.

still got them for my dreamcast. And yeah, Sonic adventure 2's alot better... but you're getting a fair amount in SA1 as an arcade game.

Hopefully shenmue will hit soon. Or better...chu chu rocket! how the hell thats not managed to be release on xbla/psn i dont know

I'd really like to see capcom bring the power stones too.. they would be great fun online

Honestly, i don't mean to be rude now but are you freaking bonkers? What part of Sonic Adventure 2 was good? The entire game was freaking terrible in every way. The only way i can think of justifying liking of that utter turd is if maybe you were very young when you first played it and thus not as picky (kind of how i have a soft spot for the first turtles game on the NES, because i played it when i was 5 or 6 years old and it was turtles and thus awesome). It just now strikes me why people are so infatuated wit Mario 64 :P

Dear SEGA,

please bring Jet Set Radio games to XBLA, too.

I thought SA was great, the same with SA2 (minus the fishing).

i own all the must haves for dreamcast so this whole "classic dreamcast games on XBL/PSN" is kinda wasted on me. although if they put up something rare like seaman on there....i'd probably bite. can't resist some leonard nimoy narrated, man-fish action...lol

I still have my Dreamcast along with Crazy Taxi, Jet Grind Radio and Skies of Arcadia. I will gladly repurchase them without hesitation.

I am very happy, that Sega is republishing Dreamcast games. I am interested, although I have these two and many others for Dreamcast already. Crazy Taxi seems to have widescreen screenshots, but why not Sonic Adventure?

For me, Sonic Adventure 2 was a step backward. Original Sonic Adventure has six separate, but interlinking, beautiful storylines. And you can look around with directional pad. I really was not happy when I found out that d-pad functionality was removed in sequel. Small thing, but for me, important.

Now, imagine Seaman with decent voice recognition and the ability to manipulate the environment using hand movements: Natal's killer app right there! :o)

Had only ever played crazy taxi in arcades and on the xbox, man it brings back some awsome memories, had so much fun with that game.

If they can sort out the draw distances, upscale them properly, add 4xMSAA and lock the frame rates on these titles, then wow, this would be a fantastic age for gaming. Dreamcast really was ahead of the game on so many levels - Online gaming on consoles, unique peripheral-driven games (Samba de Amigo, Sega Bass Fishing), memory sticks that could play games (VM units), arcade-perfect ports, amazing reliability, so much to offer.

Just a shame SEGA didn't realise this when marketing (or not) the damned thing. Fucking retards.

They need to just re release the entire Dreamcast Library. Let's just face the facts here

What's up?

  • crookedmind
    crookedmind Question for you guys, since most of you are console-centric. Is the playstation network cross compatible with their older consoles? For instance, do ps3 games also released for ps4 have the ability.. (11 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Just saw the slasher movie Scare Campaign. Rather damn nice actually. Some surprises/twists too. Watch it! (1 Hour ago)

    alimokrane On a different subject all together. if only the entire world acted like this: [url] (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (2 Hours ago)
