It all depends on quality of emulation, but yeah it's deffo interesting. I'd love to see this move to consoles, maybe on a flat subscription rate or something

Interesting concept. Shame I won't have any decent phone to be able to try it, but maybe if its a big enough success they could bring it to consoles. I'm sure we've brought their MD games enough times already to warrant a console version. :lol:

Didn't Sega try this on the PC a few years back? You could even buy special USB Saturn controllers?

I just wish they'd start releasing Saturn games on the XBox. Only one I can think of off the top of my head is Guardian Heroes, and that was years ago.

They did but it was all Mega Drive based I believe. This one is apparently going to cover all their home systems.

This really interests me, especially if they get some of the more obscure classics like Gain Ground, Outrun 2019, Master of Darkness and SMS Choplifter on there.

Well I downloaded the games today on my iphone 5s
The games are megadrive version of Sonic 1, Kid Chameleon, Altered Beast, Comix Zone & Phantasy Star II
The ads in games are as not irritable are in some apps games I have but a couple of games the sound at odd times tends to sound glitchy otherwise they are OK.
The virtual controls aren't as easy to use + covers part of the gameplay area. I will need a Bluetooth controller in the near future!

Meh will be skipping this. I have a large majority of segas classics on other formats and dont like playing action packed games on a phone (i tried sonic 2 and it controlled like a turd.)

A good idea that will suit some people but id rather they made a collection of saturn games into a collection to buy for a current gen console.

What's going on - Sega do this which is accessible but to all intents and purposes generally poor. And Nintendo do something brilliant with the NES/SNES minis but have production so low nobody can buy them.

So how do you find out when they release games on this then? So far, I've got Comix Zone, is that's all that's available?
