XBLA and PSN Vintage Collection titles finally priced and dated

From the SEGA Blog comes news that is a surprise to nobody: The third wave of Vintage Collection titles are hitting XBLA and PSN next week. What we did not know were the dates and prices, thankfully SEGA has that covered. On May 22nd, PSN will receive the following titles for $4.99 each: Wonder Boy in Monster Land (Arcade), Wonder Boy in Monster World (Mega Drive), Monster World IV (Genesis/Mega Drive), Super Hang-On (Arcade), Revenge of Shinobi (Genesis/Mega Drive), Alex Kidd in Miracle World (Master System).

On May 23rd, XBLA will receive the following compilations: Monster World Collection (800 MSP) includes Wonder Boy in Monster Land (Arcade), Wonder Boy in Monster World (Genesis/Mega Drive) and Monster World IV (Genesis/Mega Drive). Alex Kidd & Co. Collection (800 MSP) includes Super Hang-On (Arcade), The Revenge of Shinobi (Genesis/Mega Drive) and Alex Kidd in Miracle World (Master System). But thats not all! After the break, more games, dates and prices.

Still here? Good. On May 30th XBLA gets two more collections: Golden Axe Collection (800 MSP) which includes Golden Axe (Arcade), Golden Axe 2 (Genesis/Mega Drive) and Golden Axe 3 (Genesis/Mega Drive). Also released on that day is Streets of Rage Collection (800 MSP) which includes Streets of Rage (Genesis/Mega Drive), Streets of Rage 2 (Genesis/Mega Drive) and Streets of Rage 3 (Genesis/Mega Drive).

Seems PSN, while less expensive than the Wii’s latest offerings, still gets the short end of the stick as none of the PSN titles are bundled nor will they include the snazzy 3D menus. Also, buying all six PSN titles is $10 more than XBLA. Still, better getting the games than not getting them at all. Here’s hoping PlayStation Plus members get some of these titles for free down the line.

    Any of them coming to PC?

    The PlayStation 3 versions have their own unique menus and have 12 achievements for each individual game, which I honestly kind of prefer. Monster World IV only has 3 achievements in the XBLA collection. =/

    I think Alex Kidd sucks and I like Super Hang-On a lot, but I kind of just want Revenge of Shinobi. Will get Monster World IV for sure too. Golden Axe Collection seems pretty neat, but I wish it had the Genesis version of the first game (arcade one is already on XBLA).

    Also worth noting: Each game comes with a sound test and extra (unlockable?) artwork viewers. Very cool.

    I’m on board for Monster World Collection and Streets of Rage Collection. Probably the Monster bundle immediately, and SoR a few months later.

    I love Alex Kidd in Miricle World. Maybe they are embarrassed by a lot of the other Alex Kidd titles. I played through them all when they came out.

    I will probably buy the XBLA of each of these collections except maybe Golden Axe. If they put Revenge of Death Adder on there I would. We have all those other ones on SUGC.

    I’d like to see Knuckles Ultimate 32X collection, or they could call it Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection part 2: Knuckles 32X collection, and have every Sega published game on there.

      Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection part 2 would be a great cash in for SEGA there is a few good Genesis games they missed, and they could add some great Sega CD games and Some 32x games.
