Finally! Dreamcast Lives On in PS3 and Xbox 360
It’s still thinking, and we’re very excited. Sega of America and Sega of Europe have happily made a joint announcement stating that the Dreamcast, that oh-so-beloved console released on 9/9/99 (and died a year and a half later), will see new life on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. According to their website:
SEGA® Europe Ltd. and SEGA® of America, Inc. today announced plans to bring classic titles from its popular Dreamcast™ console to Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®Network later this year. Sonic Adventure™ and Crazy Taxi™ will be the first two classics made available, with Sonic leading the pack in Autumn 2010 for the 11th anniversary of the launch of the Dreamcast in Europe.
This means that gamers can finally play as Sonic… and Big the Cat on their current-gen consoles. Personally, I’m waiting for Phantasy Star Online and Jet Grind Radio. What do you think?
