SEGA takes down Streets of Rage Remake download links

Posted by GeorgeFollow George on Twitter! on Apr 7th, 2011

Fans want a Streets of Rage Remake and SEGA didn’t answer. What did they do? They did it themselves, without using any of SEGA’s code. They recently released the final version of their game and it didn’t excite SEGA too much.

“SEGA have contacted regarding the download hosted on this site. While this issue is being resolved, please do not upload the game for others to download. Any links posted on this site will be removed. Thank you.”

Seems that SEGA might think that a remake like this, that is free, will cut into sales from their re-releases. It sucks, I really liked it when SEGA would allow people to remake stuff like this. They don’t say much to all those Sonic fan games.

    I started downloading this a couple days ago, and then decided I didn't want it.

    Now I want it.

    It's funny, Sega have been letting fans get away with fan games, roms, hacks and all sorts for YEARS now whilst Nintendo will threaten legal action for so much as a palette swap… yet nobody gave Sega an ounce of credit for it.

    Sega finally acts and I bet it'll be a shit storm… They have every right to do so too.

    This is the first time I remember SEGA doing this.

    Maybe they're doing something illegal or something.

    This will show up on torrent for sure though.

    I'll stick with the "old" SEGA. Actions like these really are pathetic! SEGA if you are jealous go ahead and amaze us by making a remake yourselves instead of giving us the same old stuff you give us in your collections!

    The old Sega? As in the Sega 1 day before you heard about this?

    Sega have every right to take down this game… It's Segas IP.
