Maybe Virtua Racing can't be emulated properly. I know the Genesis version had some massive speciality chip inside to make it run on the Genesis.

Yeah, that thing retailed for $100 too.

I'm guessing Revenge of Shinobi has license issues that prevents it from being on here and I'm sure somehow Sega will include (an an unlockable) Virtua Fighter 2 on Genesis for some unknown reason.

Stop wasting your money on videogames and sign up at prizerebel! Just do some simple and short surveys and in a couple of weeks time, you'll have enough credit to buy a $60 release! Or PSN/Xbox credit. Why pay money to fund your hoarding addiction when you can do it for freeeee!!!

Looking forward to what achievements they have for this, and I heard it would be $30 - I might get it anyway

I have the PS2 version, but will get this for the Shining Force, Streets of Rage, and extra Sonic games, among others. I've been eying Shining Force 2 on the Wii, so I might as well get a little more for $22.

I was reading the press release and it does say there will be unlockable arcade games. Maybe that will include Virtua Fighter and Virtua Racing?

Either way, this is a tough collection to turn down for the price.

It'd be awesome to have arcade perfect ports of some of the early Model 1 games. They might not play perfectly anymore but come on, who wasn't blown the Fuck away they first time they saw Virtua Racing in the arcade? I sure was. Same story with Wing War.

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

Some games I would like to see are missing I assume this due to licensing rights..... Either way $30 for all those games is a steal I will be pre-ordering this.

There's a PSN logo on the PS3 box. Error, or will we be able to play these dudes online?

X-Men for one. I really dug the first Genesis title.

Its probably more along the lines of leaderboards though online multiplayer would be pretty fucking sweet

I won't pre-order unless there is a sweet freebie but I'll be picking this up on the first week

I hope the way to unlock games isn't crap. The way unlock the games on the Sonic Collections was just stupid. I don't want to have to play through a game I don't like just to unlock a game I do want to play.

At the very least, I will be renting this one. I have the PS2 collection, but the extra games and achievements will be nice. Going back and playing these great titles from my youth is always a good time, especially considering I never owned a Genesis and only got to play these at other people's houses.

No Space Harrier on the official list? No purchase by me.

Maybe the'll make it an unlockable, but if there isnt a code and I have to slough through some game I dont care about to play it PASS!

This is great news. I thought for sure that there wouldn't be any more collections this gen due to downloadable games. But I'll wait for a used copy or a price reduction before buying. I already have the PS2 collection and all of the other games (plus more) are available on Gametap.

I wonder if this will work the same as the Namco collection, where the Sega games that have already been released on XBLA will be the on there and be the only ones with Achievements. I hope not.

I preordered this last night during the StopWatch sale over at GameStop.com. Free overnight shipping on a $30 title, yes!

Moonwalker would be fun, it was a big deal back then. Damn these licensing issues.

I still hold out hope for
Phantasy Star I (unlockable I hope)
Toejam & Earl (I'd love parts 1 and 2 but that won't happen)

And a personal favorite which is screaming for some multiplayer.

You linked to the flyer for the Arcade version, which rocks. The Genesis version however, sucks balls.

All I remember about the game was touching a monkey and turning into a robot. Needless to say it exceeded my expectations and was awesome based on that sole reason alone.

Unless they pull a Namco and the only cheese will come from the XBLA releases:

Sonic, Sonic 2, Ecco, Golden Axe, & Streets Of Rage
