I'm curious, did you get the message as a regular or psn+ member? Im a plus member and got it for 30% off (the week it came out) and still got this message from Sega.

Thanks OP for the confirmation! I thought it was a scam or something. But it's not! Bought my copy :) even if I didn't want it that much, haha. It had caught my attention jussssst enough for $5 to be a great price.

Btw, to the question above, I'm not a Plus member. I wonder if it's just because I spend a decent amount of money on PSN? Idk...

Oh my dear god, now every stupid PSN message purportedly from Sony or a company offering a deal will be given legitimacy. I'm blocking all PSN messages in three minutes.

I really enjoyed playing Daytona again after years since my Saturn days. I also tried out Space Channel 5 Part 2, and had a lot of fun too, although I don't know why Sega didn't offer Part 1 with it.

probably the reason why some only got 30% off and some 50% off.

i buy most psn games as well and got 50% off.

You can easily tell which ones are bullshit and which ones are legit.

I don't think many regular users can send messages with attachments that take you directly to a discounted item on the store.

It was cool of them to send this out (I got one), but it doesn't sound like they thought it out very well.

Are you able to forward the message? Maybe people here who already have the game can share the deal.

That'd be cool, but I don't think it's possible. I wish PSN had a gifting feature. I have no interest in buying this for my main account, but would gift it to someone that does.

I ended up getting a message and promptly purchased the game. Daytona was always one of my arcade favorites and I played the heck out of it on my Saturn. I'm sure it will be $5 with one of the inevitable Sega sales down the line but it's nice to have it a little early for that price.

I wonder how they filtered who to send these to? Is it from buying something from Sega in the past or just completely random?

I have the 360 version and I'm shocked that there's only about 15k people worldwide that bought it on 360. I've been wondering why Sega hasn't released any Model 2/3 arcade games on XBLA or PSN but now with sales numbers like these I guess I get it. I'm sure the PSN version sold better thanks to Japan but still I doubt it sold good. Do people not have arcade nostalgia? I for one would gladly buy Virtua Fighter 2, Fighting Vipers, Scud Race, and others if they were available.

The port of Daytona is amazing, it's the true arcade version in HD, it looks and plays great especially if you have a force feedback wheel. If you can get it for 5 bucks don't hesitate.

Those are some depressing numbers, Roy, and doesn't bode well for future releases. It seems like people don't really put their money where their mouth is for these classic re-releases. I saw clamoring for both Daytona USA and X-Men Arcade, for example, for years but when they actually get released they're largely met with apathy.

This release, unlike straight arcade ports like TMNT or X-Men, is really superior in that Sega added widescreen support, online multiplayer, and a Mission mode. Oh, and if you care, it's an extremely easy 100% for trophies as most Sega releases are. The Karaoke mode is just bizarre and doesn't really serve much purpose. Daytona would be a lot of fun online but sadly the lobbies are barren.

It's an extremely short and simple game with only 3 tracks but it serves up a great nostalgia trip if you were a fan of the arcade/Saturn version and is still a lot of fun as an early 3D racer with simple mechanics. If you didn't play the original or aren't a fan of outdated '90s racing games you probably won't like it.

Anyone for Virtua Racing next? I discovered while running through this that I was blending a lot of memories between the two games. Now I need to play VR to complete the nostalgia trip.

Early last year I received one of these messages from I think it was gameloft offering to sell Modern Combat for $2.99. As I had already enjoyed playing the demo of MC; I went ahead an made the purchase and have been happy with the deal because MC is a fun game to play from time to time. Totally worth it.

People these days only want games with guns in hands and running around like idiots shooting people down. All other genres take a backseat. Sad.

code was waiting for me when I got home, bought it instantly! I'll do this anytime they run a promo like this and I don't have the game already..I played it, it was ok, gave it to my 5 year old, he practically cried when he saw he came in 40th :lol: Quick speech about the golden years of gaming and trying to explain an arcade to him..he forgot.
