Megadrive Collection for PS2 and PSP

Post by Mantas » Mon Aug 14, 2006 11:06 am

Today I found out about the games that will be included in this compilation. The PS2 and PSP are the same.
It also features numerous unlockable items that delve into the soul of the Mega Drive, including interviews with the original developers that created the games featured in the collection, a museum area with interesting facts about the games and a hint area.

For PSP owners theres the added joy of wireless multiplayer action. I'm not sure which games will have this feature but its safe to assume that Golden Axe, Virtua Fighter and Sonic 2 are the likely choices.

Hopefully some of your favs are there. Pity the original Shinobi isn’t included. It is due for release for Christmas.

I must admit, I'd not heard about this at all! It'd be good to play Shinobi III again and to play the Phantasy Star games.

I'd not heard about this either, but if the emulation is decent I'll definitely snap a copy up. That's all great stuff. Except for All-turd Beast of course.

I assume there'll be a PAL release :?

I have it on good authority that its definitely true and that theres a PAL release.

Excellent, only about 3 of those games require you to push in a diagonal. Maybe I'll get this. :lol:

I only heard about it yesterday. I love the fact releases like this are coming our with a lot of games on them. I never bother buying comilations because I don't feel it's worth the money, will prob get this though. In fact all my PSP planned purchases are gonna be collections, Gradius, PowerStone, Metal Slug.

ah yes Snow Bros. I prefer it in the arcade but that would be good. This list isn't long enough really. Of course this collection will be worthless to me if us PAL players get 50Hz'd.

If Sega mess things up again I always have PGen. I can play stuff like a fan translated patch of 'Monster World IV' already on my PS2.

They're Sega developed games so there's bound to be a few turkeys in there.

The joys of PSP ownership - standard display :D

Though we have DGen already, this pack is looking good.

I wouldn't argue with the Eccos being there, they're essentials for a Mega Drive pack, the original being one of the few games I even had for my Game Gear. I have it on my PSP now :D
