SEGA has stated they are planning on bringing 18 to 24 DC titles to PSN and XBLA by next summer. Shenmue re-release seems pretty likely now.This is according to Mike Hayes, who of course is the president of SEGA West.
“We hope to have somewhere between 18 to 24. Around that.” – Mike Hayes
So what about SEGA Saturn? Mike Hayes says that right now, they have no plans on bringing SEGA Saturn games to HD consoles. Come on, give us some Panzer Dragoon and Shining Force III!

All over my face please!
I hope Illbleed and Zombie Revenge are among them.
This is really great news, I wonder what they will set the price point at?
Still hoping MS will allow a larger amount of gamerscore attached to each title to compensate for the fact they are actually full games.
Just make sure JSR gets all the licensed music. I can live without it in Crazy Taxi… But JSR? Eh, no!
Folks need to remember that SEGA is probably limited to first party games, so to all the kiddies on Facebook asking for Power Stone: use your heads, fools!
Playing these Dreamcast games on the 360 would probably feel a bit more authentic than playing it on the PS3. It's all in the controller.
I used to think that was a restriction as well, but Perfect Dark on the XBLA has 20 achievements, so I am not sure what is going on with that.
I think the restriction should be 12 minimum and games big enough should be worth 500 gamerscore. For retail games it should never be under 30 achievements IMO…
I really hope that they DON'T release the Dreamcast version of Daytona USA. I loved the arcade version but the DC version, while pretty, had physics that made it feel like you were driving a car made of butter across a hot skillet. A port of the re-released Sega Racing Classic to XBLA would be much more welcome. 🙂
These ones could easily happen with little to no need to change anything:
Sonic Adventure 2
Ecco The Dolphin: Defender Of The Future
Space Channel 5 + Part 2
Virtua Tennis and/or 2
House of the Dead 2
Skies of Arcadia
Shenmue 1 and 2
I doubt we'll see Japanese games that need translating work like Segagaga, and games like F35 Challenge, Sega Rally 2 and Daytona would probably stumble into licensing issues. Not sure if 1.5 party games like Toy Commander or Headhunter could make it either. Still, so many great games they could bring over it's awesome to hear they open to about 20 releases by next year, phew!
Ooo, 18 Wheeler with the 360 wheel would be quite nice, yes. 🙂
Space Channel 5 Part 1/2 (they already have the sound files made for the PS2 version its just a matter of plug n play there),
Sega Rally 2 *with Jpn version net compatibility added please*
Chu Chu Rocket
Skies of Arcadia
Make it happen please!
This is fabulous news, now I need to add more space to my HDD. I'm not going to have enough. ^-^
