SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive Classics’ free VR update for PlayStation 4 out now

If you have been playing the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive Classics and wished you could use your PlayStation VR headset, you are now in luck my friend. SEGA has just tweeted that the free PlayStation 4 VR update for the collection is out now.

I went online and saw some streamers try the VR update to see how it worked and it looks pretty cool. Obviously most of the impressive ‘immersive’ VR experience comes from the 3D game room when selecting the games, when you are in-game its just a regular screen (in VR!). You can check out GAMERTAG VR’s Stream of it to see what its like. This is cool, I like free updates. I think SEGA should do this more with their games especially Sonic Team games that never seem to get issues ironed out.

Sega Mega Drive/Genesis Classics now available for Linux and Mac – featuring Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Ecco games

Following the console release of Sega Mega Drive/Genesis Classics, SEGA has quietly released the collection to Linux and Mac. The game is also available for Windows. The collection features the same features as the console releases, meaning the new multiplayer and challenge modes have been added. Interestingly, this version features more games than the console release. Most notable is the inclusion of Sonic 3 & Knuckles, though it is unknown if the games are available without lock-on. Also included are the three Ecco games, Eternal Champions and Sonic CD. The inclusion of these games are one major drawback to the console release, and it’s nice to see them included here though it does call into question what legal stipulations are holding back these games on home console.

UPDATE: I installed the hub on my Mac and it runs smoothly however it looks like Sonic CD is Windows only and launches separately as it has in the past. It does not appear within the collection.

SEGA Genesis Classics releases today for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One – Check out the crazy launch trailer

SEGA Genesis ClassicsSEGA Mega Drive Classics for those in Europe – releases today for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. To celebrate the launch, SEGA has released a bizarre video from Eclectic Method which mashes up various assets from the 50+ games included in the collection. The collection itself is a console port of the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive Classics Hub which released to Steam back in 2016.

We reviewed the Steam release back when it launched, which you can read here, and plan to review the newly released SEGA Genesis Classics once we get a copy in our hands. Unfortunately SEGA hasn’t sent us an advance copy to preview and review (though they oddly sent a ton out to several low to mid-tier YouTubers). If SEGA is reading this, we have a YouTube show going on a channel that is doing pretty well for itself. So, you know, don’t forget about us next time please.

If you want to pick up a copy for yourself, and support SEGAbits, you can order the PlayStation 4 version here and the Xbox One version here.

The collection will include over 50 classic games along with enhanced features like Rewind, Mirror Mode and visual filters. The official site,, has yet to go live but it can be assumed that is where the full list of games will be included. The collection is releasing physically to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 29th, and as an added incentive will include a double sided poster. Thankfully, SEGA seems to realize the Genesis can stand on its own and does not need Sonic’s name tacked on to the title, like they did with Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection in 2009.
