I think Kotaku mentioned it was priced at either $29 or $39. If that's the case, I'm very interested - and it's a big screw you to the Virtual Console where those games are 800 points each.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Updating my links in the OP. You were right JJSP, it's looking like $30! Which is a great number in my opinion. I wanted to update last night but was having issues, oh well. New links here and up top.

http://blog.wired.co...reveals-hu.html

Personally I was thinking they would try for 40 or 50 and I would have to pass. But for $30 I'm totally in; I want to play Shining Force again!

Oh, and there's more games to be announced as unlockables! They've made mention of these likely being Master System games, so cross your fingers for Phantasy Star I to complete the I-IV run on one disc.

I never saw what was so great about Sonic CD... S3&K is still the best to me.

Anyways, S3&K with achievements (hopefully) will be godly to me, I can't wait for that game alone on the 360.

The collection is awesome though, sucks that I bought all of the classic Sega games on the XBLA though...

No, according to the Sega site:

"MASSIVE MULTIPLAYER OPTIONS. Play these classics together with a friend from the same console at home." Right now it looks like local....I hope this changes

To me, having this, unlockable games, achievements and the games polished for HD makes it worth it. I don't have the PSP one, so it's a no-brainer. Might be tough to double-dip if you already have it. But for $10 more than the PSP right now (that one launched for $30 too, so I'm guessing this will drop over a short amount of time) I'm in for 1.

Most of these games were already released for the PS2 in a Genesis collection, aside from the shining forces games, dynamite headdy, and the 3 streets of rage, you can get the rest on one disk already.

Nice list keeping Myke. Thanks!

FOS - According to one of the pages, the Master System games are the unlockables so we should see at least a couple more games on this list. Sega site is teasing them as to be revealed soon. So I'm hoping we get Phantasy Star I and a few other games in there.

The release date is listed as Winter 2009 officially. Gametrailers.com has the debut trailer and a release date of Feb 20th 2009. I have never kept track, but are they fairly reliable when it comes to anticipated street dates and such? Or do they pull them out of their ass?

Thanks for the list Myke. I'll definately be making the upgrade if only for Shining Force 2, Beyond Oasis, and the Streets of Rage games.

I've said it several times before. I hope one of the unlockable games is the arcade version of Golden Axe 2. Such a forgotten gem, so much fun with multiple people.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

It's probably were it's a 32X game and not a original Genesis and Master System game.

Virtua Fighter is a 32X game and not included but Virtua Fighter 2 was on Genesis if I'm not mistaken.

There are some great classics in that list.

I greatly prefer the PS3's controller, so hopefully the PS3 version will allow a full install, or maybe they could just throw the whole compilation up on the PSN as a downloadable purchase.

After all, it would be strange to keep the disc spinning for such tiny games.
